Liverpool player ratings after home defeat to Atalanta


Liverpool player ratings for the 2-0 defeat at home to Atalanta in the Champions League

Liverpool lost 2-0 to Atalanta at Anfield.

Alisson Becker 7

Good save at near post from cheeky Gosens drive early on. No chance with the goals and decent clearances when needed.

Neco Williams 5

Targeted by Atalanta defence and struggled as a consequence, but didn’t stop offering himself going forward. Improved a little second half but both goals originated from his flank.

Joel Matip 7

No messing about when required to clear and commanded the defence well. Even turned up on the edge of the Atalanta area at one point. Solid after break.

Rhys Williams 6

Kept matters simple, read danger well and decent distribution first half, but slow to react for the second Atalanta goal.

Kostas Tsimikas 6

Swung in some decent crosses first half and involved in an ongoing battle with Hateboer. Exposed a little for the opener. Booked and subbed.

Gini Wijnaldum 7

Some good tackles and interceptions as Atalanta pressed hard during the opening quarter and positionally disciplined throughout. Subbed.

James Milner 6

Looked to move Liverpool forward but passing wasn’t always on point. On the end of some heavy challenges.

Divock Origi 5

Clobbered on several occasions and while regularly showing for the ball, he did little with it. Subbed.

Curtis Jones 6

Plenty of energy and sought to inject that into the Reds’ play during a dismal first 45 minutes. Kept at it after the break.

Mohamed Salah 6

Fire Liverpool’s only first-half shot over and wasn’t given much room in which to race. Subbed.

Sadio Mane 5

One or two moments of threat before the break but hounded out for the most part. Second half saw no improvement and appeared tired.

Fabinho (for Wijnaldum 61) 6

Solid tackles in the defensive midfield role.

Roberto Firmino (for Origi 61) 6

A couple of nice touches but couldn’t make much difference.

Andy Robertson (for Tsimikas 61) 5

Outjumped at the far post for Atalanta’s second.

Diogo Jota (for Salah 61) 6

Brought much-needed pace and directness to an otherwise poor attacking effort from Liverpool.

Takumi Minamino (for Matip 85)
