Jordan Henderson – 6
Henderson struggled to make many decent creative passes and was not much help defensively either on Saturday. In fact, there was a continuation of a concerning pattern of Henderson spending more of the game complaining to the refs and his teammates than producing for his team.
Curtis Jones – 5
Jones had an alright game off the ball in the midfield but struggled to produce with any level of quality once he had the ball. He had two shots, both way off target, and was dispossessed before being subbed off in the second half.
Thiago – 9 (Man of the Match)
Thiago shined on Saturday through his near perfect passing, bringing a level of smoothness and pace to the Liverpool squad that has come to be expected from him but still deserves to be appreciated. With his no-look passes, ability to find space for the ball in traffic, and just general dynamic understanding of the pitch around him, it’s no surprise that almost every threatening Liverpool attack could be traced back to a Thiago pass. With the rest of the midfield struggling, Thiago’s 85 pass accuracy, 3 key passes, five tackles, a clearance, and two interceptions were a massive contribution to the Reds snagging three points.
