Alisson – 6
Went full Karius for the first goal. United were that shite he felt sorry for them and gifted them a goal, he had nothing else to do. Passing spot on as always.
Clyne – 6.5
Did alright the new lad didn’t he. Hasn’t played football in about 4 years and he kept up with the tempo pretty well in parts. Obviously the weak link in the side which was targeted several times.
Lovren – 6.5
Returning from a head injury and still put himself about, neither him or van Dijk could do anything for the goal. Relatively quiet besides that. No idea why he thought he could score fro 35 yards though.
Van Dijk – 7
Had the toughest job of the day, trying to stop Lukaku…..battering the crowd with loose balls. Solid as always, never in doubt.
Robertson – 7.5
Typical Robbo performance, up and down that wing like a YoYo. Had to be a bit more defensive minded given the pace on the wings but he dealt with it well as always. Fantastic touch in the second half to deny Fellani.
Fabinho – 8
He was bloody brilliant. That assist was pure football porn and I shall be watching it on repeat on my own later. Defensively solid again, possibly his best game. Was my MOTM until Shaqiri started doing bits.
Gini – 7
Superb in protecting the ball, composed when under pressure and decisive in his passing. Does the dirty walk and doesn’t often get the recognition. Has a little more freedom to burst forward when he’s partnered with Fabinho.
Keita – 7
Just what we needed in midfield; driving runs, loads of step overs, a risk taker and a link to the front four. We are starting to see glimpses of all the YouTube videos we’ve been watching for a year!
Salah – 7
Caused havoc in that United defence, although I’m pretty sure they do that themselves. Has the freedom to play across the back line and keep defenders guessing by playing off the shoulder which creates space for others.
Mane – 7.5
Nothing wrong with his finishing, never has been. Told you all he was saving it for today. First touch was filthy, as was the finish. Always hungry for more and always a threat. Influential for the second goal too!
Firmino – 7
Fair play for that shithouse tackle in the first half to wipe out Rashford. Put me down for more of that. Not sure how he did it but he did some sort of magic shit with about 4 players round him, unlucky not to score.
Shaqiri – 10
Made a difference as soon as he came on, love that little bastard! Took a deflection from professional bird shit eater Ashley Young but I don’t care!!! Oh and second goal!!!
