Liverpool 5-2 Roma – Player Ratings

Liverpool

Karius 6 – Did well with crosses but can’t be beaten at his near post like that.

Alexander-Arnold 8 – Great performance, two key passes that eventually led to two goals (get him on the plane Gareth!)

Lovren 6 – Poor defending for the Dzeko goal.

Van Dijk  7 – Decent enough game, not tested much.

Roberston 8 – Great performance, put in some great balls (cross that Gini missed straight after Roma goal in particular) – unlucky not to register an assist.

Henderson 8 – Thought he was great, had De Rossi in his pocket

Milner 7 – Our new Kuyt, non-stop running. another CL Assist. Very unlucky to concede the penalty.

Oxlade-Chamberlain 5 – Early injury. Gutted for him as hes been playing well and the WC is just around the corner.

Salah 10 – Two goals and two assists in a CL semi final. Nothing more needs to be said.

Firmino  9 – Same as above.

Mane 9 – Thought we has awesome. Missed some chances but always looked dangerous. Still think he’s underrated and harshly criticized. His runs opened up play for Salah and Firmino

Roma

Alisson 4 – Difficult to rate him any higher considering he’s conceded five goals.

Fazio 3– Shouldn’t play in a back three. Question mark over whether he should play at all.

Jesus 3– Error after error. Salah had a field day up against him.

Manolas 5– Got better as the game went on but showing Salah onto his left foot is suicide.

Kolarov 5– As ever better going forward then defensively.

Florenzi – Barely noticed him, but not in a good way

Strootman 4– Failed to get on the ball, Roma will want more for him in the second leg

De Rossi 5– Too slow. A player that usually overcomes this with great positional sense, though that was not the case on the night.

Nainggolan 6- Roma’s star man looked a shadow of his normal self despite being effective during certain periods.

Under 5- A quick and usually dangerous player that didn’t make the second half.

Dzeko 7- Roma’s best player on the night and their only hope throughout the tie.
