Which Liverpool players were the greatest against Manchester United? Which players flopped? Here we rank the Liverpool player ratings vs Manchester United. 

Liverpool versus Manchester United again failed to live up to the hype as Jose Mourinho’s safety-first policy saw him once more frustrate the hosts at Anfield.

United goalkeeper David De Gea made one brilliant reaction save from Joel Matip in the first half but Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to break down well-organised opponents.

Now. let’s run through the Liverpool player ratings vs Manchester United from the Liverpool vs Manchester United Premier League week 8 game:

Liverpool player ratings vs Manchester United:

Simon Mignolet 7

He knew from the early stages his concentration levels would be tested as much as his reflexes. When called upon for the only time on 43 minutes, he produced an important save to deny Lukaku. Mostly unemployed.

Joe Gomez 7

Preferred to Trent Alexander-Arnold, possibly for his greater physical presence. Anthony Martial had the pace to trick him, but Gomez stood his ground well and acquitted himself excellently. Improving every week.

Joel Matip 6

Has escaped the same levels of criticism as his defensive partner but looked more aggressive than usual. He was close to giving Liverpool the lead with his clever shot, but – like The Kop – was cursing De Gea’s brilliance.

Dejan Lovren 6

Most often in a duel with Lukaku. It threatened to be the defining contest of the afternoon and the Croatian seemed up for the fight. That said, there was an embarrassing overreaction when trying to get the United striker dismissed before half-time.

Alberto Moreno 6

Moreno still has not convinced everyone of his defensive improvement, but he relished taking on Ashley Young on Liverpool’s left side. Won a few early headers and looked as likely to get beyond United’s back four with his overlaps. Did well.

Gini Wijnaldum 7

Sadio Mane’s injury opened the way for Wijnaldum’s inclusion and the way he started the game suggested, tactically at least, it was in Liverpool’s favour. The Dutchman tends to save his best for occasions like this. One of the better players.

Jordan Henderson 7

Forget the playmaker role he is given for England, Henderson is more effective as Liverpool’s spoiler, trying to knit midfield to enable more creative players to dominate further upfield. A different player in a Liverpool shirt.

Emre Can 6

A Klopp favourite who can often appear to be doing the same role as Henderson. Tidy, but he missed a great chance on 56 minutes. A typical Can performance. Not bad, just not especially great.

Mohamed Salah 7

After being the hero for Egypt in World Cup qualifying it is no surprise Salah started full of confidence, showing plenty of tricks and turns of pace. But his runs were often from deep and he could not hurt United enough.

Roberto Firmino 6

Has been off-form recently. There were a couple of sparks, but some of the dynamism is missing. He worked as tirelessly as ever but must have felt he was playing nine defenders at times.

Philippe Coutinho 7

Liverpool needed him to show why Barca want him so much, but Mourinho had Ander Herrera shadowing the Brazilian forcing him ever deeper. No player had to think more tactically to find space to penetrate.
