Forwards and Substitutions

Mo Salah – 6

Salah had an uncharacteristically quiet match against the Spurs, finishing with two shots, neither on target. The one bright spot for the Egyptian in Sunday’s match was being a helpful distraction to aid in Liverpool scoring their second. It is Salah’s first game without a goal or assist since matchweek 2.

Diogo Jota – 7

Jota managed a brilliant header with two Tottenham defenders in coverage for an equalizing goal in the first half, one of the only moments of solid momentum for the Liverpool offense. Jota’s tenth goal of the year was joining teammate Salah as the only player with double-digit goals this season.

Sadio Mane – 5

Mane continues to bring a high energy, working hard to find space to work in enemy territory. Unfortunately, his efforts continued to go unrewarded on Sunday, failing to break through much in the first half before being subbed off in the second with just one shot on target throughout the contest. Mane’s goal drought has now spanned eight matches across all competitions.

Bobby Firmino (for Morton, 60′) – 6

Firmino was a good set of fresh legs for the Reds but failed to make any meaningful impact.

Kostas Tsimikas (for Mane, 81′) – 7

Tsimikas wasn’t given a ton of opportunities to produce, coming in after the Reds had shifted back defensively following the Robertson send-off. He managed one decent run into the Tottenham box but was cleared before he was able to get a cross off.

Joe Gomez (for Jota, 90’+2) – N/A
