Simon Mignolet: 6
Didn’t really do anything wrong, or have much to do at all. Couldn’t do anything about the three goals. Kicking looks better if you want a positive.
Nathaniel Clyne: 5.5
Covered well at times but was also caught out of position too often.
Dejan Lovren: 5
Not a particularly confident day for the defence as a unit. Hopefully he looks more steady when Joel Matip comes back in.
Ragnar Klavan: 4
Could have been lower. Could have been sent off on a different day, though there was nothing he could do. Put the third on a plate for Gylfi Sigurdsson.
James Milner: 6
Gives us an outlet and width on that left hand side, and a great ball for the first. Willing runner as always.
Emre Can: 4
So, so poor at the moment. Slows everything down, takes too many touches and loses the ball far too often. A matter of time before he’s dropped, surely.
Jordan Henderson: 5.5
Could argue he didn’t do enough to protect but his passes connected well, for the most part.
Georginio Wijnaldum: 6.5
Not his most effective of days but his touch and assist for Roberto Firmino’s second earns him extra.
Adam Lallana: 6
Better in the second half but not in his best spell of form currently, as could be said of so many.
Philippe Coutinho: 6
Looked capable of creating something first half but The Reds didn’t take the game by the scruff of the neck. Strange that he came off but he did look tired, possible effects of his injury.
Roberto Firmino: 8
Produced the two moments of magic that looked like sending Liverpool towards a comeback win. Second goal was world class.
Daniel Sturridge: 6
Divock Origi: 6
