Liverpool Echo player ratings

Liverpool player ratings for the 2-0 win away to Sheffield United in the Premier League

Adrian 7

Took confidence from two early saves from McGoldrick. Kept things simple with his kicking and punched well.

Trent Alexander-Arnold 8

A real threat when overlapping down the right, delivered some good crosses, tested Ramsdale with one shot and did so well to create the opener.

Nat Phillips 8

Winning the first header set the tone for a dominant performance in the air. Beaten once for pace second half, but limited those issues. Very good.

Ozan Kabak 6

Hampered by a lack of communication at times, not least when scoring an own goal that was rightly ruled out for offside. Dithered too often but good tackle to deny McBurnie.

Andy Robertson 7

Unable to probe forward as much as usual until the game opened up second half and twice could have scored. Defensively sound.

Gini Wijnaldum 7

Another to be denied by Ramsdale, much of his work went under the radar until a more prominent and energetic second-half showing.

Thiago Alcantara 6

Efficient in possession with some progressive moments and didn’t go ground readily with his tackling. Subbed.

Curtis Jones 8

Broke forward with purpose on occasion and sought to make things happen, and finished the opener with real conviction. Subbed.

Mohamed Salah 7

Denied by the leg of Ramsdale after racing into the area and continually harassed the home defence.

Roberto Firmino 7

Worked hard and got into some great positions only to miss two first-half chances. Made amends with great footwork for the second and deserved the luck of the deflection.

Sadio Mane 7

In a more free role, popped up all over the pitch and led the fight with his tenacity helping set up the second.

James Milner (for Thiago 76) 6

Brought some experience to help see the game out.

Naby Keita (for Jones 80)

Welcome minutes for the midfielder.
