Posted by

Liverpool grabbed their first victory in eight games after recording their biggest ever away win in the Champions League, beating Maribor 7-0 meaning they go top of their group. As much as the opposition was poor, the Reds’ players performed superbly.

Oxlade Chamberlain LFC goal

Loris Karius – 6

Didn’t have much to do as he easily kept his first clean sheet of the tournament.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7

Showed his burning pace, covering the right flank well.

Joel Matip – 6

As sturdy as ever and managed to bring the ball out, starting off several attacks.

Dejan Lovren – 6

A professional performance from the Croat who barely put a foot wrong.

Alberto Moreno – 6

Another positive display in what has been a very good season for the supposedly out-of-favour full-back.

Gini Wijnaldum – 7

Really showed his class tonight, positive going forward and not afraid to do the dirty work either.

Emre Can – 8

Becoming a real powerhouse in the centre of the pitch now, very impressive performance .

James Milner – 8

Classy as always, his willingness to run cannot be undermined. Showed his experience tonight too.

Mohammed Salah – 9

Best performance in a Liverpool shirt this far. Scored a brace, grabbed a few assists and played fantastically. Man of the match.

Roberto Firmino – 8

Also grabbed a brace, seems to play well once he hits the back of the net, especially early on in the game.

Philippe Coutinho – 7

Fourth goal in five games out on the left which is not his natural position

Alex Oxlade-Chamberain – 6

Grabbed his first goal for the club, may push the monkey off his back

Daniel Sturridge – 6

Needs more game time, but also needs to prove to Jurgen Klopp why

Dominic Solanke – N/A

Made a few good touches when he came on
