Player Ratings: Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla

Player Ratings


Loris Karius – 6

Brought back in for Mignolet but again failed to give the crowd – or his defence – any confidence

Joe Gomez – 4

An underwhelming performance capped off with a late sending off

Joel Matip – 6

Not authoritative enough at the heart of the defence – although, at times, was Liverpool’s most attacking player

Dejan Lovren – 5

Looked shaky throughout but was not overly tested by Sevilla’s attack

Alberto Moreno – 7

One of Liverpool’s brighter players, seemed to thrive playing against his former club

Georginio Wijnaldum – 5

The game seemed to bypass him and consequently he contributed very little

Jordan Henderson – 6

Attempted to drive Liverpool forward although was prone to some wayward passing

Emre Can  6 

Played a part in the mess that was Sevilla’s opening goal and looked in a daze throughout

Mohamed Salah – 8

Liverpool’s most potent threat – like at the weekend – caused the defence problems

Roberto Firmino – 6

Failed to really impress as Sevilla’s defence found him the easiest to mark but did get Liverpool’s first goal

Sadio Mane – 7

Involved in some exciting linkup play with Salah but failed to finish his promising runs with a goal



Sergio Rico – 7

Had fairly little to do but when necessary pulled off some very good reflex saves

Sergio Escudero – 7

Was made to work hard defensively against a pacey Salah

Simon Kjaer – 6

Sevilla’s new signing was tested against a dynamic front three and it was his deflection that gave Liverpool their second goal

Nico Pareja – 7

The Sevillan veteran dealt very well with Firmino – the type of defender that Liverpool could do with

Gabriel Mercado – 6

Was gifted a lot of space on the right side and was involved in a lot of Sevilla’s attacks

Steven N’Zonzi – 8

The former Blackburn midfielder exemplified why he is so highly thought of in Spain

Guido Pizarro – 6

Was not as effective as N’Zonzi in the central area but still outplayed his Liverpool counterparts

Joaquin Correa – 7

A promising player who showed off his flair and skill culminating in his fantastic finish to give Sevilla a share of the points

Ever Banega – 7

Having returned to Sevilla, after a difficult season with Internazionale,  he always provided central support to the three strikers

Jesus Navas – 6

A fairly muted performance by the former City winger but did link up well with Mercado at times

Wissam Ben Yedder – 7

Scorer of Sevilla’s opener and nuisance to Liverpool’s defence and midfield – although he didn’t have any other major goal-scoring opportunities apart from the goal

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 […]
