Loris Karius: 6
Deck chair day for the gorgeous German.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7
Played as though it was his 100th start. Really like him, natural footballer, really hope he develops because he’s potentially very, very good.
Joe Gomez: 7
Looks like a footballer, doesn’t he? Got turned once in the second half, but other than that looked calm and assured. Didn’t look flustered against a grock of a centre forward.
Lucas Leiva: 6
Hard to rate. Did what he was asked, wasn’t put under any great pressure. Thought he was going to score a worldie at the death.
Alberto Moreno: 6
Looked as likely as anyone to be the one to break through, people forget he’s actually a pretty good footballer because he’s criticised for his deficiencies so much. Has a lovely first touch and carries possession as well as anyone.
Emre Can: 6
Has a lovely weight of pass, just wish he was a yard quicker in his execution.
Kevin Stewart: 6
Bit pedestrian, but decent enough for his first run out in a while. Needs to start imposing himself a bit more.
Ovie Ejaria: 6
Didn’t disgrace himself at all and will benefit from the experience, just didn’t really get going either.
Sheyi Ojo: 7
Bright spark for The Reds, seems to have bulked up a little since the summer. Unlucky a few times with the break of the ball, deserved to get a full 90 under his belt.
Ben Woodburn: 7
Love how he stands a man up and then tries to beat them with skill, certainly doesn’t want for confidence and didn’t seemed intimidated in the slightest.
Divock Origi: 6
Tough afternoon for the Belgian, had 18 defenders man marking him and seemed a bit off his game. Needs to be on it for things to work, can’t really play at less than anything other than 100 per cent.
Daniel Sturridge: 7
Came on to try and bag a winner and came closer than anyone else in a red shirt. Felt like, had he got more minutes, he’d have scored. Touch and vision a class apart.
Roberto Firmino: 6
Not really enough time to make an impact and afforded very little space to make a difference, strangled by Plymouth’s 28 men behind the ball strategy.
Adam Lallana: 6
As per Firmino.
