Midfield

Tsimikas – 7

Tsimikas wasted a beautiful cross from Mohammed Salah just in front of Norwich keeper Angus Gunn, smashing the ball over the crossbar instead of tapping it in for the early lead. From there, Tsimikas made an excellent effort to make up for the error. He took some decent corners in place of the absent Alexander-Arnold and placed a header perfectly to Mane to assist on the equalizing goal. He succeeded in four of five tackles had two clearances and one interception.

Henderson – 8

Henderson was near perfect in controlling the field for the Reds on Saturday, with a field-leading 97% pass success. He had three key passes, including a long play-in pass to Luiz Diaz to lead the Columbian to his first league goal for the club. Henderson also contributed to the build-up to Mane’s equalizing goal. He racked up a massive 120 touches for 10.6% possession in the match and was a considerable influence in cleaning up a squad that played extremely sloppily in the first half.

Naby Keita – 5

Saturday was quiet for Keita, with the midfielder looking for passes that weren’t there, leading to just a 79% pass success. He won three of five tackles and had one shot blocked before subbing early in the second half.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 4

Oxlade-Chamberlain was an unfortunate liability against Norwich. He wasn’t productive on or off the ball and wasted an excellent shot at the end of the first half. Oxlade-Chamberlain also completely ruined a set-piece kick from range for a goal kick before he was subbed off early in the second half.
