Liverpool 0 Southampton 1: Match Ratings | The Anfield Wrap

STINGS that. And I couldn’t give a fuck about what the papers say, and Twitter can go fuck itself, we weren’t bad today, anyway…

Loris Karius: 7

Stupidly good one on one block save in the first half, handling good, kicking OK in a bad wind, can see why he suits us if he can get in the team and maintain his current level, but Simon Mignolet has done nothing to deserve being dropped, so we are where we are.

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7

Again, solid, didn’t disgrace himself at all. Will play in midfield at some point and a measure of his ability that they’re willing to put him in a right-back to give him minutes.

Dejan Lovren: 7

Doing my fucking head in this, we played well, he did alright, and then that, fucking ridiculous.

Joel Matip: 7

See above, fuck this off. Soz, but what else can you say?

James Milner: 6

Seemed a bit off and seemed to break down when in possession, which is unlike him.

Could have maybe taken a ball in the box with his left early in the second period instead of switching it to his left.

Jordan Henderson: 6

Not looked the same since he’s came back, which is a big worry. Playing like he’s still carrying an injury which, like 18 months ago, is limiting his effectiveness massively.

Emre Can: 7

Easy scapegoat but actually did alright, tried to make it happen, got a sniff and a few breaks but just wasn’t happening, endemic of the wider performance.

Adam Lallana: 5

Just slightly off with everything, lacked a bit of snap, but allowed an off-day.

Philippe Coutinho: 6

New contract and that. Looked lively for 60 but faded badly.

Roberto Firmino: 7

Actually played well. Touch, in the main, assured and unlucky with odds and sods.

Faded as the game drifted, though.

Daniel Sturridge: 6

Should have scored, thus winning the game for the Reds because we’d have subsequently buried the other chances.

He’ll know it too.

SUBS

Divock Origi: 6

God only know why he didn’t win a penalty that brings us level, but y’know, shite officials and that.

Georginio Wijnaldum: N/A
