Champions League Round of 16: RB Leipzig 0 – 2 Liverpool – Player Ratings
That felt nice! Awfully considerate of Leipzig to pull the defensive line up nice and high for the boys upfront. Cheers, mates!
Any other keeper and we’re likely down 1-0 early. Still a bit nervy on the ball but played through it in a big way.
TAA – 7
Looked class all-around. A bit loose a couple of times marking and Leipzig got some chances down that side via Angelino.
Kabak – 8
Might have a player here. Looked incredibly smooth on the ball and strong throughout. Bonus points for running around bloodied.
Henderson – 7
Just Jordo doing Hendo things.
Robertson – 7
Tip of the cap for a fantastic strike from range to try to catch Gulasci out. Bonus points for bundling em into the net like a wet fish. That was a good laugh.
Thiago – 7
Had a nice little thing going with Mo, most of the match. No yellow cards. Which was nice.
Gini – 7
Better in tight spaces than D.B. Cooper. Write that down.
Curtis Jones – 9
Absolute behemoth today. Shrugged players off in possession, took players on, worked hard coming back, provided linkup play. The complete performance.
Sadio – 7
Gave that backline fits. And finally. A goal. Well deserved.
Bobby – 7
Back to making those incisive runs that open up space. Good in position. Pivotal in the link up. Standard.
Mo – 8
That’s seven in seven. Back to his lethal best; punishing mistakes, putting away chances.
Ox – 5 (‘72)
Year of the Ox they said. OK…
Shaq – 5 (‘72)
Elf on the Shelf. Ox in a box. Shaq in a sack. I’d buy one just watch it waddle around in my backyard. Zinging passes and shouting things.
Neco – N/A
