Harvey Elliott Scores 8 as Alexis Mac Allister and One Other Outstanding in Liverpool Player Ratings vs Man City

The ECHO’S Ian Doyle rates Liverpool players following their encounter with Manchester City in the Premier League.

The clash between Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League proved to be a thrilling encounter, with Liverpool staging a comeback to secure a hard-fought draw against their title rivals.

In the midst of the intense battle, Alexis Mac Allister converted a penalty shortly after the halftime break, equalising the score. The penalty came as a result of John Stones capitalising on a moment of disorganisation from the Reds’ defence, catching them off guard at a corner in the first half. This goal ultimately led to a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

And here’s how the ECHO’S Ian Doyle rated Jurgen Klopp’s players after an absorbing encounter between England’s best two teams.

Caoimhin Kelleher 7

“Beat out De Bruyne piledriver and saved another effort from Haaland first half. No chance with goal and strong to repel Foden after break.”

Conor Bradley 7

“Defended doggedly and twice found himself in good positions inside the City box first half, and should have done better with the second. Subbed.”

Jarell Quansah 7

“Wasn’t perturbed by the City attack and showed good strength and composure, particularly when faced by Haaland. Forced save from Ortega second half.”

Virgil van Dijk 7

“Aside from one momentarily lapse when dispossessed by Haaland, a good defensive display with some important interventions. Asked a lot of team-mates with some passes second half, however.”

Joe Gomez 6

“Struggled alarmingly up against Foden in the first quarter although responded slightly before break. Switched to right-back on the hour and far more comfortable.”

Wataru Endo 7

“Lost De Bruyne a few too many times first half when attempting to press high, which wasn’t always wise. Chose moments better as game progressed and started to regain possession regularly.”

Dominik Szoboszlai 6

“Attempts to lead Liverpool press failed early on, later improved but sent good chance over with header and one free-kick saved. Subbed.”

Alexis Mac Allister 8

“The most lively home midfielder with his close control and passing vital during difficult first quarter. Influence grew as Liverpool improved and tucked away penalty confidently.”

Harvey Elliott 8

“Extremely busy on the right, used possession well and always looked to get Liverpool moving forward. Maintained level when switching into midfield during second half.”

Darwin Nunez 6

“Regularly caught offside, somewhat astray with passing first half and lost Stones for opener. That said, very alert to win penalty and denied by Ortega at close range. Subbed.”

Luis Diaz 7

“Mixed bag from the Colombian, who worked incredibly hard, pressed superbly, fashioned openings and got on the end of some great opportunities but wasted them all.”

Mohamed Salah (for Szoboszlai 61) 7

“Sent Diaz clear with his first touch and added pace and quality to the attack. Signs of understandable rustiness with some decision-making.”

Andy Robertson (for Bradley 61) 7

“Another whose experience and class made a difference to Liverpool forward effort.”

Cody Gakpo (for Nunez 76) 5

“Found it difficult to get up to the pace of a frenetic game, to the frustration of the crowd at times.”
