Another Premier League season has come to an end and despite it being Liverpool’s best ever campaign we ultimately fell one point short of the pace setters Manchester City. Despite the fact that today ended with no Premier League trophy, Liverpool did all they could by securing a victory over Wolves and kept their momentum going as we look forward to a Champions League Final in Madrid.
With all that said, here’s the player ratings after a sunny sunday afternoon at Anfield:
Alisson – 8
If it wasn’t already obvious Alisson has been worth every single penny we paid for him, the Brazilian had arguaby his best game for Liverpool against Barcelona in the week and followed it up today with an exceptional performance. With Wolves creating an array of chances Alisson stood strong to keep a clean sheet and win the golden glove – most notably making a 1 on 1 save to prevent Jota when Liverpool were only one goal ahead.
Trent – 7
Another man who has been on fire recently, not long ago it seemed like Robertson was pulling clear of him and Trent’s little competition but the Scouser finished strong to overcome the Scotsman. Once again today he was the playmaker for both goals and his return for the whole season is world-class for a right back.
Matip – 6
I thought both defenders were pretty quiet today but even still they contributed to another clean-sheet, Matip didn’t do anything wrong all game and looks certain to partner Van Dijk in Madrid.
Virgil – 6
Again, not much to report for the big man; but his hair is boss and he’s the best player in the Premier League so who’s arsed ey.
Robbo – 5
I was surprised Robbo played today after having to come off injured against Barcelona, having said that it might have been best just to give him a rest and ensure his fitness for the final as he didn’t have his best game today.
Fabinho – 6
I’m really not trying to be too harsh today but I have to give the player ratings based off those 90 minutes and I thought Wolves got through the midfield pretty easily today. Ultimately it doesn’t mean much because we didn’t concede but you would expect the level will be upped in three weeks time.

Hendo – 6
Once again can’t fault the captains effort today but he found it difficult to put his mark on the game today. A few dodgy passes but he chased every single ball and made a vital interception in the box when Wolves worked an opening. Can’t wait to see him lift number 6.
Wijnaldum – 7
Gini Wijnaldum puts glue on his boots, pass it on.
He just does not lose the ball, his dribbling ability is so under-rated. Put three men around him, push him off balance do whatever you can Wijnaldum will always retain possession.
Salah – 6
Spent so much of his time chasing overhit long balls and when he did get his foot on the ball created a few half chances, once the writing was on the wall it looked like he was intent on ensuring his golden boot but had to settle for sharing it with his team-mate and Arsenal striker Aubameyang.
Origi – 5
Started really brightly but that faded out pretty quickly, i’ll let him off because i’m still knackered from Tuesday as well and I didn’t have to play 80 minutes.
Mane – 9
Get used to this by the way, going forward it’s not going to be Salah or Mane it’s gonna be both. Alright this season Salah didn’t hit the same total as last year but that’s because the goals were shared between the two, a golden boot is the least Mane deserves from this season and I back him to be back up there again next year.
Milner – 7
A good sub by Klopp, at that point Wolves were realy getting on top of the game and Milner provided that experience in the middle of the park that was needed.
Joe Gomez & Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – N/A
Weren’t given enough time to impact on the game but as always it’s good to see them back on the pitch.
Let me know what you think in the comments below. It’s been a while so I had to clean the dust off the keyboard for this.
See you in Madrid!
