Here’s how we rated the Liverpool players who started against Borussia Dortmund in today’s pre-season friendly battering…
GK) Simon Mignolet – 7
Barely had anything to do, but distributed the ball well.
DR) Javier Manquillo – 8
Really solid debut from the young Spaniard. Defensively he was rarely troubled, but he passed the ball well, and regularly overlapped Coutinho on the right.
DL) Glen Johnson – 6
As always a willing runner up the flank, but he occasionally made sloppy decisions with the ball at his feet.
DC) Dejan Lovren – 8
Bagged a goal on his debut with a header from a corner, and didn’t put a foot out of place all afternoon. Great start.
DC) Martin Skrtel – 7
Marshalled Liverpool’s defence well, and his selection today suggests he’ll likely get the nod to start the first game of the Premier League season next weekend.
