Liverpool Player Ratings as Harvey Elliott Makes “Huge Difference” and One “Wasteful” in Manchester United Draw

Here are player ratings for Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League.

Liverpool showed resilience as they came from behind to salvage a point in their quest for the Premier League title against Manchester United.

Despite dominating the first half, Liverpool found themselves trailing 2-1 after goals from Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo early in the second half, with Luis Diaz’s goal offering little consolation.

However, Mohamed Salah’s cool finish from the penalty spot secured a 2-2 draw for Jurgen Klopp’s side at Old Trafford.

Now, let’s delve into how the the ECHO’S Ian Doyle rated each of Klopp’s players in the match…

Caoimhin Kelleher 7

Limited involvement in the first half with no opportunity to prevent either of United’s goals. Showed alertness in denying Rashford’s attempt on goal.

Conor Bradley 7

Initially occupied with Rashford in the first 15 minutes, but subsequently managed to contain the United winger and emerged as a significant attacking force. Received a yellow card and was substituted.

Jarell Quansah 6

Maintained composure, especially when confronted by multiple opponents as United initiated counterattacks in the first half. Despite a dreadful mistake that allowed the home side to gain momentum, they responded exceptionally well.

Virgil van Dijk 7

The Dutchman found the first half too easy due to the lack of home threat. The second half posed more challenges, but he maintained his level of performance.

Andy Robertson 7

Initially challenged defensively by Garnacho, but quickly took advantage of the space ahead of him, which led to a well-timed corner delivery and an opening goal. Demonstrated a strong partnership with Diaz throughout the match.

Wataru Endo 6

Effective when in control, however, struggled to contain United’s aggressive attacks and was absent during their second goal. Substituted.

Dominik Szoboszlai 6

An early save by Onana set a positive tone, but a missed opportunity to score followed. Defensive vulnerabilities were evident at times, leading to a substitution later on.

Alexis Mac Allister 8

Consistently occupying vast expanses of space and demonstrating adept ball control, they were pivotal in orchestrating numerous Liverpool attacks. Their persistent probing kept Manchester United unsettled throughout the entire match.

Mohamed Salah 7

A constant threat down the right first half but wasteful finishing before break, even if he did force Onana into action. Missed big chance to equalise but held nerve to score from spot to level.

Darwin Nunez 6

Assisted in scoring the opening goal, but could have generated more opportunities with greater precision in the first half. Squandered a clear chance early in the second half and was substituted.

Luis Diaz 7

Excelled in improvisation and quick reactions to secure scoring opportunities, consistently pressuring Dalot in the first half and maintaining possession adeptly. Persisted in the second half as Liverpool sought to stage a comeback but ultimately missed a late chance.


Joe Gomez (for Bradley 66) 6

He diligently stuck to his defensive duties and endeavored to enhance the team’s attacking prowess whenever he had the opportunity.

Curtis Jones (for Szoboszlai) 7

Although not as impactful as earlier in the week, Liverpool’s performance still contributed to maintaining possession. Booked.

Harvey Elliott (for Endo 69) 8

Once again made a huge difference with his neat play and energy, which combined to win the penalty.

Cody Gakpo (for Nunez 69) 7

Fouls were the only way to stop some powerful runs originating from deeper positions.
