Milner stars, Salah disappoints: Liverpool player ratings from 2-1 win over PSG

Published

on

Liverpool scored a stoppage-time winner against Paris Saint-Germain to cap off another fantastic night at Anfield.

The Reds were brilliant against PSG and raced into a 2-0 lead. Daniel Sturridge and James Milner scored for the home side before Thomas Meunier pulled one back for PSG.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe barely threatened the Reds but the pair needed one chance to make us pay. The French attacker got his opportunity in the 83rd minute and made no mistake.

Liverpool could have given up and accepted a draw but Roberto Firmino had other ideas as he produced a brilliant shot to beat the PSG keeper in the 91st minute.

Cue jubilant scenes all around the park as the Reds beat one of the biggest sides in Europe and here are the player ratings from Anfield.

Alisson – 7/10

The Brazilian can’t be blamed for the goals and wasn’t tested much during the game.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7/10

Trent didn’t have a lot of problems dealing with Neymar and Angel Di Maria. The Englishman also produced some quality crosses in the game.

Virgil van Dijk – 7.5/10

The Dutch defender reduced Edinson Cavani to a mere spectator in the game. Another commanding performance from Van Dijk, though he should have produced a stronger tackle prior to the second goal.

Joe Gomez – 7.5/10

Another quality performance from the youngster as he made a couple of important blocks and interceptions.

Andy Robertson – 8/10

The Scot provided a stunning cross for Sturridge’s opener and was handy at keeping Mbappe in check throughout the evening.

James Milner – 9/10

The former Manchester City man was incredible as he scored an important penalty and also made a brilliant tackle on Neymar which got the crowd going.

Jordan Henderson – 7.5//10

Hendo didn’t look off the pace, given his World Cup heroics, and the captain did everything right with his passing and tackling in the midfield.

Georginio Wijnaldum – 7/10

This wasn’t Gini’s best outing but we can cut him some slack after a fantastic start to the season. The Dutchman was a little slow but got us the penalty for Milner to convert.

Mohamed Salah – 6/10

Salah gave the ball away for Mbappe’s goal and even had an effort ruled out for a foul by Sturridge. The Egyptian wasn’t the best player on the night for us.

Daniel Sturridge – 7.5/10

The Englishman got a start and he made good use of it by scoring the opener. Sturridge did have a couple of chances to extend the lead but this was a decent performance.

Sadio Mane – 7/10

The former Saint did a pretty good job at the start of the game as we hammered PSG but slowly faded away in the second half.

Substitutes

Roberto Firmino – 8/10

One good eye? No problem. Firmino came up with the goods in injury time for the Reds.

Xherdan Shaqiri – 7/10

The Swiss was a late substitute but did pretty well at holding the ball
