Liverpool vs AC Milan: Player Ratings

Marko Lazetic managed to miss from close range in the opening two minutes of play for Milan, but Liverpool quickly scored to take the lead. A few passes later, the Reds had stunningly easily through Milan’s defense, and Mohamed Salah was able to slip a pass to Antonio Mirante, who had already fallen to the ground by the time the Egyptian was one on one.

In the first 20 minutes, a significantly altered Milan XI was plainly having trouble getting into a groove. Their passing was much more terrible than their awful form, and Liverpool frequently managed to turn the ball over. In the end, it helped Liverpool win thrashing 4-1.

Goalkeeper & Defenders

Caoimhin Kelleher (7/10)

Saelemaekers’ goal could not be stopped easily, but other than that, he was unbothered. Some really good distribution.

James Milner (6.5/10)

Enjoyed the vast amount of room Milan gave him in the first half. But his reserves were pretty much empty at that point.

Joel Matip (7/10)

He was fortunate not to suffer a nasal bleed for his efforts in advancing past Milan’s backline and assisting Salah with his opening by passing to Salah. For the huge guy, this is uncharted ground.

Joe Gomez (6/10)

Showed his limits while attempting to bring the ball out or locate a forward pass when in control.

Andy Robertson (6/10)

When competitive football is returned, he can’t be making the same mistakes with shifts of play as he made here. Liverpool needs Robbo to be at his best.

Midfielders

Stefan Bajcetic (6/10)

A clean performance at the base of midfield, with no particularly noteworthy moments.

Thiago Alcantara (8.5/10)

Played the first half of the game wearing his slippers. Given much too much space around the box’s edge to utilize, they relished every second of it. What a talented player he is! Not bad for a guy who didn’t make the national squad just because of a “new project lineup.”

Harvey Elliott (6/10)

jumped on the showboat at the start of the second half after a really dirty spin. Unfortunately, it immediately touched something.

Forwards

Mohammed Salah (9/10)

Out wide and gave Tommaso Pobega the runaround. Every time the two of them faced off, he was extremely agitated. Gave the fans a reason to go Mo Salah! Mo Salah! Mo Salah!

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (5.5/10)

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was essentially a false nine, received a rare start. dropped deep and attempted to coordinate strikes while letting others bomb ahead of him.

Roberto Firmino (6/10)

He’ll be frustrated that he didn’t score against a stretched-out Milan. Then again, according to Klopp, if Salah and Mane are class 8 out of 10 matches, Bobby is class 10 out of those 10 matches.

Substitutions

Naby Keita (5.5/10)

In the tank for 30 minutes without getting hurt. Promising.

Darwin Nunez (8/10)

Gotta love this guy’s hunger for goals. He appeared to be in a frantic attempt to score, and it worked. snagged a brace in a cameo that was all action.

Fabio Carvalho (6/10)

A clever cameo. eager to seize the initiative and evade teaser passes.

Ben Doak (6/10)

Upon entering the game, rattled the post with a low, driven shot before helping Nunez. The teen’s cameo is excellent.
