Chelsea 2-2 Liverpool: player ratings
The youngster was deputised for Allison and did extremely well. Looked quite calm on the field and made a few great stops.
The Englishman struggled defensively but did well going forward. Produced an excellent assist as well for Salah on the second goal.
It wasn’t a great display from the Frenchman and was out of position on the second goal for the Blues.
Virgil Van Dijk(6/10)(CB):
Had a solid game but should have closed down Pulisic on the second goal. But, he let him wide open and the American pounced on it brilliantly.
Started the game in place of suspended Andrew Robertson. And did pretty well against a strong Chelsea team.
Struggled to keep up with the energy of the opposition midfielders and also failed to protect the back four well enough as he usually does.
It was not his best game of the season and struggled to play their free-flowing game against the Champions League winners.
Lacked efficacy with the possession and wasn’t at his best on the night and overall a good performance from the veteran.
Scored a brilliant goal and also could have scored a few but was denied by the brilliance of the opposition goalkeeper.
Capitalized brilliantly on the mistake of Trevoh Chalobah and scored a very good goal. Overall he worked well and produced a good performance.
Could not be involved in the game as much as the Liverpool fans hoped for. Overall it was not a great afternoon for the Portugal international.
Replaced Jota and played in an unfamiliar position. So, he could not influence the game.
Came on the field midway through the second half but could not find his feet in the game.
Came very late into the game and didn’t have enough time to impact the game.
