Two goals on either side of half-time made sure that Liverpool saw off an injury-struck Manchester United.
David de Gea: 4
Assaulted by Virgil van Dijk after a set piece which led to a goal correctly being given ruled out. Could do very little about the goals. Could’ve done a bit better on the second goal.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 5
Was not exposed to many one-on-ones on his right side and did reasonably well. Put a good ball in for Pereira in the first half which should’ve been his second assist of the season.
Victor Lindelöf: 4
Won the ball in vital areas at times but constantly put under pressure by Liverpool.
Harry Maguire: 4
Got spun a few times but that was more down to him than the Liverpool players. Looked shaky at first but improved as the game went on.
Luke Shaw: 6
Many were thinking that Mohamed Salah would be having a field day up against Luke Shaw on that side but the left-back did well.
Brandon Williams: 6
Unfairly matched up with Van Dijk for the hosts opening goal. Did well throughout the game.
Nemanja Matic: 4
Slow on the ball, gave the ball away in dangerous positions. Scott McTominay can’t return soon enough, even if Matic has done better than expected in his absence.
Found himself in a few good positions and was United’s best player. It was a near perfect performance from Fred. It is no longer a case of Fred improving, it is now a case of him consistently performing for United after putting a horrible first season behind him.
Daniel James: 4
Had some fantastic opportunities to play in Martial but either missed the pass or chose another option. Poor, poor final ball from James.
Andreas Pereira: 6
Nearly scored an equalizer in the first half, if only he was 2 inches taller. Great one-two with Martial to set up the Frenchman.
Anthony Martial: 5
The lonely man up front. Had a golden chance in the second half, must do better.
