Forgot just how much I fucking hate Leeds.
Simon Mignolet: 6
Decent save early on when Lucas played Goodison Park onside. Other than that, fairly routine, did well with a few punches and everything else as you’d expect.
Alberto Moreno: 8
Decent outlet, didn’t have a ‘moment’ either, which was nice! Looked well-drilled, linked up well, highlight was a lovely ball with the outside of his foot first half to set up a decent chance.
Ragnar Klavan: 6
Didn’t have a bad game, didn’t really have much to do either, unlucky not to score in the first half with an effort from 30 yards.
Lucas Leiva: 7
Lucas is my shepherd, one that manages to play the entire world and its brother onside. Apart from that, standard, never hides and always looked to take the initiative.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 8
Who put the cross for Origi’s goal, who put the cross for Origi’s goal, who put the cross for Origi’s goal? Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Kevin Stewart: 7
Turned over like a Vauxhall Nova.
Ovie Ejaria: 7
The epitome of raw precociousness. Can see everything, but yet to grow into it, one glorious ball in the first half.
Georginio Wijnaldum: 8
Hold and gave and did it at the right time. Boss assist for the boy Woodburn.
Emre Can: 6
Looked lost without his mates around him, a chance to assert some authority, didn’t start well and didn’t really improve either.
Sadio Mane: 6
Worryingly rusty, and at the worst possible time given the injuries around him.
Divock Origi: 7
Showed a couple of other facets to his game tonight, quietly impressive and capped it with the opener.
Ben Woodburn: 11
Man of the match for two on the bounce now. Absolutely fucking over the moon for the lad. Owes Wijnaldum the biggest pint (once he turns 18).
James Milner: N/A
Marko Grujic: N/A
