    Player ratings as Liverpool defeat Milan at Anfield in a five-goal thriller

    In a breathless night of Champions League football, Liverpool overcame AC Milan in a five-goal thriller at Anfield.

    The Reds scored early but Milan fought back to take the lead, but Liverpool came from behind themselves to win 3-2.

    Here’s how the players rated at Anfield:

    Alisson – 8 – Couldn’t do much about Milan’s goals, but otherwise performed brilliantly, sweeping on passes and coming in to collect crosses. With his dominance, he relieved a lot of strain from his defenders. In all honesty, Alisson put in a masterful display of subtle goalkeeping skills.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 – With outrageous offensive purpose, he demonstrated all of his greatness in his game. All of his pushing, passing, and crossing, as well as his superb run and shot, resulting in the first own goal. Of course, Milan ploughed into the defensive holes he left, but it is always a consequence of attacking wing-backs, and it is up to his teammates to cover for him. He continued to drive forward.

    Joel Matip – 6 – For 40 minutes, he had nothing to do, but if Milan got a chance to assault him, he was in trouble. He was rock-solid in the air, but the rapid Milan movement on the ground caused him serious issues.

    Joe Gomez – 6 – He didn’t seem at ease on the left side of the defence, and his lack of connection with Matip resulted in Milan goals. In the second half, he improved, but the first half showed he’s still fighting his way back to top form.

    Robertson – 8 – Andrew Robertson attacked with relentless zeal, always pushing up and pressuring. His average position was well within Milan’s half, and he won the penalty for Liverpool with his shooting, as well as almost denying the equalizer with a brilliant clearance off the line. He also did a fantastic job defending and doing everything else.

    Fabinho – 9 – In the centre of midfield, a magnificent performance. He was the shield that Liverpool’s furious press was built on, with 6 tackles and 4 interceptions. Could have done a little better on Milan’s goals when he was a little slow to react on the first one in particular, which is why he didn’t get a 9, but he was absolutely great elsewhere.

    Jordan Henderson – 7 – In the first half, he was sluggish in terms of guarding Alexander-Arnold, but he improved dramatically in the second half to put the clamps on Milan’s counter-attacks (especially once Rafael Leao went off). With an incredibly fantastic volley from the edge of the box, he scored the game-winning goal.

    Naby Keita – 7 – Was good on the ball and carried the ball forward during Liverpool’s quick start.

    MohamedSalah – 8 – His pressure was persistent and aggressive, and although missing a penalty that could have turned the game into a thrashing, he made up for it with a fantastic run and finish to level the score. He’s now tied for 14 European Cup goals at Anfield with Steven Gerrard (he’s already got 26 for the Reds, which is more than anyone else). Whatever else happens at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah will always be the centre of attention. He’s a truly world-class athlete.

    DiogoJota – 7 – A fierce show of pressing. He didn’t have much to do with the ball, but his defence will be noticed.

    DivockOrigi – 7 – A beautiful scoop pass over the Milan defence set up Mohamed Salah’s equalizer. Beyond that, he was outstanding, pressing aggressively (he finished the game with three tackles) and simply passing the ball to his teammates. Anfield gave him a standing ovation as he had to leave the field due to injury.

    Substitutes:

    Sadio Mané (for Origi 63′) – 5 – Sent his first shot into the sky. Just couldn’t get it together.

    Thiago (for Jota 71′) – 7 – Was truly positive in the manner that he took the ball and drove it forward.

    Curtis Jones (for Keita 71′) – 6 – Bright. Positive.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (for Salah 84′) – n/a – Came on late.

    James Milner (for Henderson 84′) – n/a – Came on late.
