LIVERPOOL 4-0 WOLVES PLAYER RATINGS:
Caoimhin Kelleher – 8
Tremendous fingertip saves early on for the debutant. Two top aerial claims and tips-away underline his authority and composure. Very impressive.
Kelleher is the established second choice and is said to have edged Adrian out of the way.
Neco Williams – 7
Picked up an early yellow card but recovered well. The youngster linked up well with Mohamed Salah and put in a few good blocks as he continued his development with a good 90 minutes.
Fabinho – 8
Missed one tackle against Traore which might have been disastrous but won the rest by bulldozing through.
Joel Matip – 8
Offered Williams excellent assistance and very solid. Very much enjoyed his header in front of the Kop for the third.
Andy Robertson – 8
The Scot was worried defensively on a few occasions, but handled them well and created a few good chances for the forwards.
Jordan Henderson – 8.5
Long ball prompted the opener and controlled the game from the centre for the Reds while performing defensive duties. A fine lofted pass set Wijnaldum away for the second goal, and he created the first for Salah too. Subbed.
Curtis Jones – 7.0
Good on the ball and worked hard for the team but also picked up a knock in the first half which hampered him.
Gini Wijnaldum – 8
Plenty of energy and covered acres of ground, with his strength and close control so vital in the midfield tussle. Then showed his attacking prowess with a brilliant finish for the second.
Mohamed Salah – 8.5(MOM)
Instinctive finish for his goal and a fine assist later on for Matip.
Roberto Firmino – 7
Looked much sharper than in recent games, linked play nicely, brought out the cheeky nutmegs a few times.
Sadio Mane – 8
A non-stop threat. Gave Semedo a nightmare, won free-kicks, created chances and worked back well – just lacked a goal.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (on for Williams) – 7
Return from injury for the right-back, whose cross teased Semedo to put into his own net for the fourth.
Diogo Jota (on for Firmino) – 6
Bit of a run-out but little involvement as the game was already won. A lively cameo against his former club.
Naby Keita (on for Henderson) – n/a
Back to fitness. Welcome Minutes for keita.
