Liverpool player ratings v Arsenal: 28-year-old outperformed Mane
By Amir Mir
Football Insider rates the Liverpool players out of ten after their 3-1 win against Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Simon Mignolet 6 – He pulled off a magnificent save in the second half when the away team was piling on the pressure. He still needs to show more confidence when collecting the ball from crosses.
Nathaniel Clyne 6 – Needs to improve his end product when attacking. Very good first half but was finding trouble coping with Alexis Sanchez when he came on.
Joel Matip 6 – In the first half he was excellent but when the Gunners brought on their attackers, it was a different story. Improvement still needed.
Ragnar Klavan 6 – Should have dealt with the Arsenal goal a lot better and like Matip needs to now show more consistency.

James Milner 6 – Mixed performance from the left-back. He was solid in the first half, but at times he was beaten too easily and was launching unnecessary long balls.
Georginio Wijnaldum 7 – Sealed all three points with a fine finish late on. The summer signing is a nuisance both in attack and defence.
Emre Can 7 – Pressured the Arsenal midfield and backline brilliantly. Kept things simple and didn’t over complicate matters.
Adam Lallana 9 – His all-round display was magnificent. From his pressing, passing, and his attacking play. It was a joy to watch. Mane may have stolen the headlines, but the 28-year-old outperformed his teammate.
Sadio Mane 9 – Simply unplayable. The Gunners couldn’t live with his speed or power throughout the game. Brilliant finish for his goal.
Roberto Firmino 8 – A much-improved performance from Firmino from the last game. He looked more comfortable and enjoyed the space provided to him in the final third.
Philippe Coutinho 8 – Magnificent display from the Brazillian who caused numerous problems when on the ball. In the final third, he is as dangerous as any player in the Premier League.
