UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Liverpool player ratings against AC Milan

Bertrand Traore

Player ratings: Liverpool beat AC Milan at the Giuseppe Meazza by 2-1 in the final group fixture of the Champions League. 

Jurgen Klopp shuffled his pack and went with a few fringe players and the youngsters. However, despite starting with a weaker team, the Reds dominated the game. The Rossoneri went ahead into the game against the run of play from a set-piece through Fikayo Tomori. 

But, the Premier League giants didn’t stay behind for long as Mohamed Salah quickly equalized the game before the interval. In the second half, Divock Origi doubled the margin with the help of a mistake from the goalscorer Tomori. And in the end, Milan lost the game and was knocked out of the European competition. 

Liverpool vs AC Milan: player ratings 

Alisson(6/10)(GK):

Wasn’t required to do a huge amount of work as the Milan attack didn’t have any conviction to put him under pressure apart from the goal. 

Neco Williams(6.5/10)(RB):

Displayed a promising performance and looked very energetic off the ball. But, wasn’t tested enough defensively by the Rossoneri attackers. 

Nathaniel Phillips(6/10)(CB): 

Enjoyed the game as there weren’t many threats from Milan and dealt with Zlatan Ibrahimovic quite comfortably. 

Ibrahima Konate(7/10)(CB):

Played excellently and was almost unbeatable. Ibrahimovic or Brahim Diaz could not get past the French defender. 

Konstantinos Tsimikas(7/10)(LB):

The Greek defender had a pretty solid game overall but the final ball going forward wasn’t accurate enough on several occasions. 

Tyler Morton(6/10)(CDM):

The youngster had a comfortable night. He didn’t look nervous in playing an away game against Milan at San Siro and was also very tidy with his passing. 

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain(7/10)(CM):

Pressed from midfielder and enjoyed a terrific game. Took the shot which was eventually turned home by Salah from the rebound. 

Takumi Minamino(6.5/10)(CM):

Displayed a promising performance and should play more often in this position rather than higher up the field as he looked comfortable in this position. 

Mohamed Salah(7/10)(RW):

It was a gamble to start the starman in this consolation game but scored the goal and performed excellently. 

Sadio Mane(6.5/10)(LW):

Capitalized the Fikayo Tomori mistake for the second goal but overall a pretty quiet game from the Senegalese. 

Divock Origi(7/10)(CF):

Started a rear game and displayed an impressive performance and on top of that scored the match-winning goal. 

Substitute:

Naby Keita(6/10)(CM):

Came on for Salah and provided an excellent pass for Oxlade-Chamberlain but the Englishman failed to convert the opportunity. 

Joe Gomez(6/10)(RB):

Had a solid half an hour and played crucial minutes en route for full fitness. 

Fabinho(6/10)(CDM):

Didn’t have much time to influence the game. 

Max Waltman(N/A):

Conor Bradley(N/A):
