West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Player Ratings For The Reds

Published

on

The Reds played their last game of the season against West Brom and Jurgen Klopp made a staggering 11 changes to the side that played against Chelsea. The match ended in a 1-1 draw and here we take a look at how the players performed.

Adam Bogdan – 5.5
Bogdan was not impressive in the game. He let an easy near-post shot inside which should have been saved. This was his last game for Liverpool as he is on his way out this summer.

Jon Flanagan – 6.5
The right back who was once brilliant for Liverpool is gradually making his way back after a long-term injury. He was solid defensively and was hardly caught out of position. However, his attacking prowess was missing, which he will have to work on.

Martin Skrtel – 6.5
The veteran Liverpool defender probably had his last game for the Reds and he had an emotional waving off at the traveling fans. He had a good game in terms making tackles and defending set-pieces. It was a good way to end his career at the club.

Lucas Leiva – 7
Lucas partnered well with Skrtel at the back and was solid at the back. He did not leave any gaps and was good in marking as well.

Brad Smith – 5
The left back was not up to the mark defensively as he was booked in the first half and made some rash challenges in the second.

Kevin Stewart – 6.5
The defensive midfielder had an impressive afternoon at the Hawthorns as he did his job well. However, if he wants to break into the first team he will have to offer a lot more. He will need to some time to explore and nurture his game.

Joe Allen – 6
The Welshman had an average game and was not at his best as compared to some of his recent displays. Allen has raised expectations from the fans, but couldn’t match that in this display.

Jordon Ibe – 7
The 20 year old winger had a good game as he was busy making those runs all afternoon. His pace was tough to match for the West Brom defence. He made a brilliant solo effort which resulted in a goal and was applauded by the traveling fans.

Cameron Brannagan – 7.5
Brannagan was brilliant with his passing, his ability to move the ball up the pitch and also had a shot on goal. He seems a good prospect for the future.

Sheyi Ojo – 5
The winger did not have a good game and was not an attacking threat to the West Brom side. He lacked the end-product in this game.

Christian Benteke – 5
Benteke did not have a lively game with what seems to be possibly his last game for the club. The Belgian striker might be on his out this summer.
