Player Ratings: Burnley 1 Liverpool 3

Cork (54’) // Milner (62’), Firmino (69’), Shaqiri (90+1’)

WE’RE LIKE WASPS AT A PICNIC.

Liverpool are rubbish and then Liverpool are great.

Concede an offside goal and then concede a real goal.

Wake up Wasps.

And the Wasps do wake up. They score three.

Jürgen Klopp’s team selection was less than ideal but I suppose he is justified. Rotation is how you mount title challenges.

And the Wasps are on the charge.

Up the Wasps.

Alisson Becker- 9/10
He is great again. Wonderful. God bless him. A crucial save at 1-2 and distributes it quickly to start the counter attack for the third.
Joe Gomez- N/A
Get well my sweet prince x.
Joel Matip- 6/10
Not great at the football. Gave the ball away quite a lot. Would bin him off.

Virgil van Dijk- 7/10
Defended well. Showed his recovery pace. Put in a delightful ball for Firmino’s goal. That’s two assists in two.
Alberto Moreno- 7/10
Did alright. Lost his head a bit at 1-0 but was alright.
James Milner- 7/10
Worked hard in the midfield. Sticks away a beauty of a finish in the only place he can for 1-1 and then does a stint and shows everyone why he’s the world’s best left back.
Jordan Henderson- 7/10
Does loads of the dirty work. Wasn’t vintage Jordan Henderson but wasn’t as bad as the naysayers will tell you.
Naby Keïta- 9/10
Starting to look the like the player we bought. Drove forward with the ball well, linked play well and had a fair few efforts on goal. Unlucky not to score.
Xherdan Shaqiri- 8/10
Find yourself wanting a bit more out of him in the first half. Things didn’t seem to be going right but then he sticks away a nice volley for 1-3. Job done.
Daniel Sturridge- 7/10
You probably want a bit more out of him too, truth be told, but then he pops up with a delightful ball for the third.
Divock Origi- 7/10
Did alright with the limited service he got. Botched an assist.

Substitutes
Trent Alexander-Arnold- 7/10
Came on for Gomez and played well. Good ball in from the free kick for Firmino’s goal. Had a lovely hug with Alisson.
Mohamed Salah- 8/10
Good play when he came on, and played a lovely ball for Shaqiri’s goal.
Roberto Firmino- 8/10
Gets a goal. That’s not something you’ve said about Firmino much this season.
