Liverpool player ratings against Leicester as one Red get a perfect 10

Liverpool player ratings vs Leicester City from Ian Doyle after the 4-0 win in the Premier League as one man gets a perfect 10/10

Alisson Becker 7
Took one off the toes of Barnes. Some nice clearances but got away with a sliced one. No real saves to make.

Trent Alexander-Arnold 10 
Regular out ball on the right flank. Brilliant crosses from either wing set up both goals from Firmino, his cross won the penalty, and followed all that with a fantastic goal. Leicester couldn't get near him. What a player. 

Joe Gomez 8 
Showed great pace to catch Barnes atone for a misplaced pass first half, otherwise read the game very well. Unlucky to be booked when Vardy fell over. 

Virgil van Dijk 8 
Kept eyes on Vardy and the dangerous Barnes, always mindful of runs in from behind. Didn't mess about, and got bored second half and started to appear in the final third for a bit.

Andy Robertson 8 
Given a tough time by Barnes on occasion and not always able to roam forward until strong finish to first half. Great cross created chance for Firmino second half, when he enjoyed himself. 

Jordan Henderson 8
One shot deflected narrowly wide, and so disciplined defensively, regularly nicking the ball off Leicester toes. Helped Liverpool dominate midfield. Subbed after a knock. 

Gini Wijnaldum 9 
Good pressing from the start, fitness not in question with such a busy display. Excellent positioning and composure, maintaining possession so well. Final whistle reaction and press conferences after Liverpool beat Leicester 4-0 

Naby Keita 8
One good pass released Salah and so creative when on the ball. Unlucky with one run that nearly saw him clear. Subbed. 

Mohamed Salah 7
Always looked to run in behind, but could have done better when clear behind Schmeichel from an acute angle first half. Had beating of Chilwell but perhaps not Soyuncu. Subbed. 

Roberto Firmino 9
Another lively pressing performance, and used the ball so well throughout. Good header for the opener, and close to a second after the interval before finishing so well for Liverpool's third. 

Sadio Mane 8 
Missed a good chance early on and then wasted an even better one when denied by Schmiechel first half. Still such a threat going forward, however, and laid on Alexander-Arnold's strike. 

James Milner (for Keita 70) 7 Converted the penalty with his first touch. Good display.

Divock Origi (for Salah 70) 7 Was soon irked by Schmeichel and reacted accordingly.

Adam Lallana (for Henderson 82) Another win bonus.
