Player Analysis: Huddersfield Town 0–3 Liverpool

Player Analysis Liverpool

Huddersfield Town

Jonas Lossl – 5

Made a few good stops but shouldn’t have been beaten at his near post for Firmino’s goal………….

Florent Hadergjonaj – 5

Performed fairly well defensively but did offer Huddersfield an attacking outlet on the left, even if it was minimal.

Terence Kongolo – 5

Tackled and intercepted well but the deep defensive shape meant he was always on the back foot.

Christopher Schindler – 6

Was Huddersfield’s best defender – won a number of aerial duels and produced some important tackles to quell more goalscoring chances.

Mathias Jorgensen – 5

Was guilty of overplaying at the back at times – defended well and didn’t offer the Liverpool attackers much space.

Chris Lowe – 6

Was eager to get forward up the pitch and created a couple of chances – was beaten by Liverpool’s passing in the build-up to Firmino’s goal.

Aaron Mooy – 5

Having had a good season, his performance was particularly disappointing – his lack of ambition and poor passing epitomised his side’s evening.

Jonathan Hogg – 7

Performed well and looked the most dangerous Huddersfield player – had plenty of energy and looked to instigate attacks with his range of passing.

Philip Billing – 4

He deflected Can’s shot beyond Lossl and gave away a penalty late on when he fouled the same player – not a very good performance from the returnee.

Steve Mounie – 5

Had little impact on the game – was void of any service and it might have been more useful for Huddersfield to not have played with any strikers at all.

Laurent Depoitre – 6

Was good in the air but had little service to feet – he did, however, provide Huddersfield’s only shot on target.


Loris Karius 6

Had very little to do but did claim a couple of crosses with confidence.

Joe Gomez – 6

Had a lot of room to run into on the right but opted to stay back – was beaten in the air for Depoitre’s first-half chance but did make a good late block to keep the clean sheet.

Joel Matip – 7

An improvement on his performance at the weekend – passed well out of the back and came striding into midfield when needed, made a couple of errors as the game wore on but nothing serious.

Dejan Lovren – 7

Showed good aggression winning the ball high up the pitch but defensively was barely tested.

Andrew Robertson – 7

Got into some really good positions in the first-half and was a good outlet during attacks – in terms of defence, it was a comfortable night apart from a poor tackle on Quaner.

Emre Can – 8

Scored the opener with a good strike, albeit lucky with a deflection – was powerful, positive and dictated Liverpool’s play; it is becoming more and more apparent that his performance determines how well Liverpool play.

Jordan Henderson – 8

Led the team well and put in a solid performance on his first start of the year – exhibited plenty of energy and was composed and comfortable on the ball.

James Milner – 7

Was chosen by Klopp because he’s a ‘Yorkshireman’ … and also because he brings a tireless work rate and experience – which he did.

Mohamed Salah – 7

His involvement came in bursts – his touches of quality and speed of movement caused concern for the Huddersfield defence – scored Liverpool’s third from the penalty spot.

Sadio Mane – 6

A mixed first-half featuring loose touches and passes but also an assist – had chances to get his goal in the second-half with two headers.

Roberto Firmino – 7

A finish from the tightest of angles once again exhibited his fabulous vision and execution – his movement allowed his fellow attackers time and space on the ball.

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 […]
