Player Ratings: Leicester City 2–0 Liverpool

Player Ratings

Leicester City

Ben Hamer – 6

Looked slightly nervy in the early stages but he and his defence gathered confidence as the match progressed

Daniel Amartey – 6

Didn’t really convince at full-back and needed the help of Morgan to try and limit the threat of Robertson on the right side

Wes Morgan – 7

Held the Leicester back-line together

Aleksander Dragovic – 6

Tough start for the Austrian but did what was asked of him and produced a solid performance

Ben Chilwell – 6

Got the better of Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left and blocked one of his early opportunities fantastically

Mark Albrighton – 5

Was required to help out Amartey in defence for much of the first half but did manage to push further up the pitch in the second

Wilfred Ndidi – 6

Gave away possession on numerous occasions but had plenty of energy and commitment

Vicente Iborra – 6

Took time to adjust to the speed of the game – this being his first competitive start for the club since joining from Sevilla – but grew into the game and produced a solid debut

Demarai Gray – 6

Comfortable in possession and made some threatening runs at the Liverpool defence but final ball was lacking

Leonardo Ulloa – 6

Was substituted in the first half with an ankle injury – had been fairly isolated up front until then

Islam Slimani – 7

One moment of magic by the Algerian took the match away from Liverpool


Danny Ward – 6

Looked fairly comfortable in the first half but couldn’t prevent Leicester from scoring two in the second half – one scrappy and one spectacular

Jon Flanagan – 5

Was anonymous in first half but, after the break, struggled to deal with Gray and offered little going forward

Joe Gomez – 5

Starting at centre-back – was caught out of position at times but did start many of Liverpool’s attacks in first half with good passing

Ragnar Klavan – 5

One of Klavan’s better performances but wasn’t tested too much

Andrew Robertson – 7

Impressed with his crosses, especially in the first half, which were just asking to be finished off

Georginio Wijnaldum – 6

Had a lot of the ball but failed to do much with it, was also culpable of leaving defence exposed yet again

Jordan Henderson – 6

Looked clumsy at times and even got in the way of his teammates – did, however, play some clever passes in the centre of the pitch

Marko Grujic – 4

Guilty of giving away too many fouls and failed to do anything positive of note – on this showing he’s a liability more so than an asset

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 4

Wasteful in possession and took countless poor set-pieces – not a full debut to remember

Dominic Solanke – 6

Was lively and a presence up-front – promising match by the youngster

Philippe Coutinho – 6

Created a few chances and sent one free-kick over the bar but things didn’t quite go his way – was substituted at halftime.

Why Steven Gerrard should have prolonged his career and helped Jurgen Klopp achieve Liverpool’s ambitions

I’ve always wanted to write about the idea that Steven Gerrard quit too soon. This article will explore the argument that had the former Liverpool captain carried on just a few seasons longer, he could have ended on a high note and helped Klopp’s side get over the line for some vital silverware. Gerrard quit […]
