Martin Fitzgerald offers up his player ratings after Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Leicester City in the Premier League…
MASSIVE three points for the patched up Reds.
Massive unbeaten home record.
Here’s how The Reds and Jonny Evans did it…
Didn’t have much to do but he was brilliant when called upon. The safest pair of hands I’ve seen on November 22 since Abraham Zapruder.
James Milner: 9
Rolled back the years, didn’t he? His passing in the first half, in particular, was superb, pinging it into the front three. Showed the benefit of knocking international football on the head at his age.
Brilliant. Made up Fabinho’s back.
Joel Matip: 8.5
Also brilliant, and wore gloves. Not just a thin woolly pair, mind, but a big massive pair like he was touching the void.
Andy Robbo: 9
You’d think with Trent out they’d do their best to stop him. Maybe they did. But it didn’t work. That cross for the second. Fuck me. What chance has anyone got?
Curtis Jones: 8.5
His best league performance of the season. Really stepped up, loads of nice touches and looked assured all night.
Gini Wijnaldum: 8
Whatever the Japanese word is that describes “typical Gini performance”.
Usual box of tricks before going off fucked. Like a really condensed version of that time David Blaine just sat in a box.
Sadio Mane: 8.5
Strong and skillful as per usual. The best there is.
Bobby Firmino: 9.5
Thought he was the business tonight. Dropped really deep but somehow managed to be more threatening than he has been all season. His touch and confidence was back. Deserved his goal and all the hugs.
What a signing this kid is. Looks a bit like Lee Harvey Oswald. Plays like him too.
Jonny Evans: 8
Back and to the left.
Back and to the left.
Neco Williams: 7
Got forward well a couple of times and showed a few decent touches.
