DON’T care if we conceded two in the first half, that’s the finest 45 minutes of football of any team you’ll see this season.

Also, a caveat, see that picture, that was essentially my view for the game so if the ratings are a bit off, it’s one of them.

Up the partial sight of the pitch Reds.

Loris Karius: 6

Mixed bag – Kicking, which is supposed to be his strong suit, was way off today.

HAVEN’T SEEN THE FIRST GOAL BACK SO DON’T KNOWN IF HE WAS AT FAULT OR NOT, SOZ.

Made two regulation saves and took two crosses, so maybe a start of sorts and something to build on.

Nathaniel Clyne: 7

The weather was very mild for the time of year, with a slight wind coming in from the west.

Nathaniel Clyne was good.

Joel Matip: 8

Everyone had worries about Christian Benteke.

Everyone apart from Joel Matip.

Dejan Lovren: 7

A big fat bonus point for character. Has an absolute ‘mare for the first Palace goal but goes up the other end and makes massive amends.

Only seen the second Palace goal side-on so don’t really know who should have done what.

Alberto Moreno: 6

Was doing fine until he does the standing still with his hands behind his back thing to let Wilfried Zaha cross for Palace’s second.

Guessing he might have done well for Emre Can’s goal but couldn’t really see.

Jordan Henderson: 8

Lashed everything in today, tackles, hard yards, words in the refs ear and rounded it off with a sex ball for Roberto Firmino to settle ALL the nerves.

Emre Can: 7

Again, probably hindered by the view, but looked ring rusty in patches. Was a decent screen for the back four when the ball was being lashed up to be contested.

Adam Lallana: 7

Shows incredible bravery in possession and isn’t afraid of trying to set the tempo.

Lost it a few times centrally in awkward positions but if they’re the risks then so be it.

Fantastic footballer.

Philippe Coutinho: 10

On current form, the best player in the league.

Sadio Mane: 8

Ran his arse off and didn’t give an inch, forced a great save from Steve Mandanda and missed one he should’ve buried.

Terrifies the life out of opposition defenders.

Roberto Firmino: 10

On current form, the best player in the league.

SUBS

Georginio Wijnaldum: 7 (subbed on 76′)

Shored up the midfield well, looked far more in control with him on the pitch.

Hates, hates, hates losing possession of the ball and almost always wins it back, on the rare occasion he does.

Divock Origi: N/A (subbed on 89′)

Ragnar Klavan: N/A (subbed on 92′)
