Diogo Jota – 5
Jota was not able to find much space to work in the constrictive backfield of Everton. He finished with a key pass, two tackles, and one shot pulled wide and was subbed off in the second half.
Mohamed Salah – 7
Salah was restricted by Everton’s deep defense but finally broke through with the back-and-forth to Divock Origi that allowed the Egyptian King to dink a cross up toward the back post and finding Robertson to assist in the match’s opening goal in the second half. Salah also contributed decently defensively, making sure to win back any balls he may have lost and coming back to help on any Everton counter attacks.
Sadio Mane – 6
Mane was quiet in the first half minus one shot off target. He also was booked for getting involved in a shoving match before halftime. Mane was well-contained by the set-back Everton squad before being subbed off in the second half.
Divock Origi (’61 for Mane) – 8
Origi immediately contributed by finding space for the interaction with Salah to set up Robertson’s header. He continued to find space and was in the right place to head in Diaz’s bicycle-kick cross and secure the victory for the Reds on Sunday. Origi has 22 Premier League goals now, and six of those are against Everton.
Luis Diaz (61′ for Keita) – 7
Found space right away to become integrated in the Liverpool offense and add a dynamic to an attack that was stagnant for most of the game, culminating in a beautiful bicycle-kick assist for Origi to slot in for Liverpool’s second goal.
Jordan Henderson (82′ for Jota) – 7
Henderson sent a lovely cross to Diaz who over-head kicked the ball across the goal for Origi’s header.
