Player Ratings: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester City

And so a game that was billed as a real chance for Leicester to take advantage of our injuries ended in Leicester being put down 3-nil as we moved 2 points ahead of them.


Liverpool dominated from the start and rarely looked back, with the away side only really drawing one serious save from Alisson.


Matip and Fabinho, reunited after injury, looked comfortable and solid and kept Vardy and co at bay with ease, while the Reds make-shift midfield controlled the ball, and the middle, for much of the game.


Goals for Jota and Bobby, following an own goal from Evans gave Jurgen's boys all three points and we move back top alongside Spurs ahead of what is a slightly easier period over the next month before we face Mourinho's side on the 16th December.

Alisson - Perhaps he wouldn't have expected such an easy night. Only one real save to make but came out for a great bit of defending late in the second half. 7

James Milner - Who expected that from Milly? Well, I'm ashamed to admit, I didn't. He was brilliant in both positions. 8

Fabinho - Looking a little bit rusty but was barely bothered by Leicester's high flying attack. 7


Joel Matip - Easy. Up against one of England's most in form strikers but was rarely troubled by him. Dealt with everything in his usual laid back way. 8


Andy Robertson - The machine just keeps on chugging at left back. Clearly buoyed by taking Scotland to a major tournament, grabbed himself an assist for the second and looked dangerous all night long. 9 Man of the Match


Gini Wijnaldum - That was more like it from Gini. He looked hungry, ran his legs off and didn't let Leicester's midfield settle for a second. So underrated it's painful. 7


Curtis Jones - Good to see the young Scouser getting more minutes in a big game and looked quite tidy too. 7


Naby Keita - Was playing so well until the injury. Had drive, precision and real guile around the Leicester box. It's a crying shame to lose him again. 7


Sadio Mane - Wasn't his best day in front of goal but he toiled away. Always working hard. The goals will start to flow again. 7


Diogo Jota - But while they'd dried up for some of our attackers, they're positively pouring for Jota. His eighth of the season so far. 8


Roberto Firmino - A goal for Bobby! He's finally got a goal and looked so much better and more confident for it. He probably thought it would never happen after hitting the post and having one cleared off the line. 7

Subs:


Neco Williams - Came on for the injured Keita on the hour and coped admirably well. 6


Takumi Minamino - Only on for 5 minutes. NA


Divock Origi - Not on for long. NA
