Fantastic Coutinho: Liverpool Player Ratings From Their Win Over Arsenal

published :

Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool secured their first victory of the season when they defeated Arsenal 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium. Two goals from Coutinho and one each from Lallana and Mane were enough to steal the win. Arsenal did make it difficult for them in the end as they came back from being 4-1 down to 4-3. All the seven goals in the match were full of quality. The worry for manager Klopp will be the injury that Coutinho picked up at the end. Mane was excellent going forward, where he used his pace brilliantly. Here is the Liverpool player rating for the match against Manchester United.

Simon Mignolet 8

Great save to deny Walcott from the penalty spot. Should have done better to stop Chamberlain’s effort at the near post. Needs to keep performing if he wants to keep his place in the starting XI.

Nathaniel Clyne 8

Did well going forward, had to deal with the pace of Chamberlain once he came on. A  really strong pass to set up the third goal.

Ragner Klaven 7

A decent introduction to the Premier League for the Estonian international. Will be disappointed to have let in three goals. Could be left out of the starting XI once Matip is more match ready.

Lovren 7

Did well-keeping things tight at the back but needed to do much better for Arsenal’s third goal. Still finding the partnership with Klaven.

Alberto Moreno 7

Not a good start to the game as he gave away the Penalty by making a reckless challenge on Theo Walcott in the box. Did get much better in the second half.

Jordan Henderson 7

Kept things moving in the midfield of the field, had a few chances to get on the scoresheet but his focus was on protecting the lead in the second half.

Georginio Wijnaldum 8

Pretty invisible in the first half but did much better in the second half. Played a beautiful pass to set up the second goal for Liverpool.

Sadio Mane 9

Could turn out to be the signing of the season, if he keeps performing even close to what he did today. What a run and finish by him to make the scoreline a little bit more comfortable.

Coutinho 8

Man of the match with two very well taken goals. Klopp will be a bit worried about the injury that he picked up at the end. Very crucial to Liverpool’s performance this season.

Lallana 7

Scored a vital goal but looked off pace. He gave away the ball that led to Arsenal opening the scoring.

Firmino 7

Sometimes it feels like he is trying too much. There were glimpses of tricks and flicks but nothing very dangerous emerged from them. Still feel he is better suited in midfield.
