Virgil van Dijk – 8 – Dominated with defensive actions, and got himself an assist for Liverpool’s third goal. The Dutchman made 5 clearances, 1 block, 3 interceptions and 2 tackles.

Joe Gomez – 7 – Gomez was strong defensively down the right flank, and also offered some attacking threat on the overlap at times. He made 1 key pass, and made 3 tackles and 2 interceptions.

Alexis Mac Allister – 7.5 – Mac Allister seemed to be everywhere in midfield, covering a lot of ground for Liverpool and getting on the ball a lot in build up. The Argentine had 103 touches, made 86 accurate passes and completed 2 out of 3…
