Poor Oxlade-Chamberlain – The Best And The Worst Rated Liverpool Players In The 2-0 Loss To Leicester City

published :

Liverpool’s disappointing run of results continued as they were defeated 2-0 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, leading to them getting dumped out of the Carabao Cup ,  

Having been under pressure for most parts of the game, it was Leicester who managed to break the deadlock 65 minutes into the game, through substitute Shinji Okazaki. Twelve minutes later the Foxes doubled their lead, as Islam Slimani scored a stunning strike from the edge of the area. 

It was another poor display from Jurgen Klopp’s side and will add further pressure on the team, after what has been a difficult past week. Here’s how the Liverpool players fared on the night; 

Liverpool Player Ratings 

Danny Ward – 6/10 

Made a sharp save to deny Demarai Gray at 2-0. Wasn’t called upon a great deal, but showed good awareness and authority in the box. No chance for either goals. 

Jon Flanagan – 6/10 

Returning to the line-up after a very long time, he played it safe and kept things simple. Was beaten for pace by Demarai Gray late in the game.  

Joe Gomez – 7.5/10 

Moved into the central defensive role, the youngster passed the test with flying colours. Did not put a foot wrong and kept things under check for most parts with ease.  

Ragnar Klavan – 6/10 

Started off well, up against the not so mobile Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa. Struggled after Okazaki’s introduction. Booked. 

Andrew Robertson – 7/10 

Afforded loads of spaces down the left-flank and made full use of it, getting forward and sending dangerous crosses at great regularity in the first-half. Held back after the break and was culpable for the opener. 

Marko Grujic – 6/10 

Started off well, exuding good energy, putting himself about on the pitch. But could not keep up the levels with time. Booked in the second half for a poor challenge.  

Jordan Henderson – 5/10 

The captain struggled to have any impact on the proceedings going forward, which did hamper Liverpool, especially after the break.  

Gini Wijnaldum – 6/10 

Was the driving force for most periods in the first period, getting forward regularly into good positions. Subdued after the break. Subbed off. 

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 4/10 

Had a shot blocked early on. Struggled to get into the game in any way. Cut a frustrated figure at times. Will see better days in Liverpool colours. 

Dominic Solanke – 5/10 

Let down by his first touch on occasions. Worked hard off the ball, but couldn’t provide the clinical edge at the top. 

Philippe Coutinho – 7/10 

Had a shot saved after a jinking run into the box. Was involved in almost everything positive for the Reds before being subbed off at half-time. 

Substitutes 

Ben Woodburn – 6/10 

On for Coutinho at half-time. Lively but couldn’t have the same effect as Coutinho did. 

Danny Ings – NA 

Made his first appearance in almost a year, replacing Wijnaldum.
