Liverpool journalist rates all 21 players out of 10 for their performance so far this season


The international break represents the calm before the storm as far as Liverpool are concerned.

For two weeks, they can look down on the rest of the Premier League in top spot.

But upon their return, their whole season will be determined on what happens in the following few weeks.

Tottenham, Southampton, Chelsea, Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolves stand in-between them and their first ever Premier League title.

Of course, they still need Manchester City to slip up - who sit two points behind them with a game in hand.

And there’s also the small matter of the Champions League to think about.

The Reds face Porto in the quarter-finals and will fancy their chances to progress to the semi-finals, where they will play either Barcelona or Manchester United.


There’s everything to play for but the international break represents the perfect opportunity to look back at what has been a brilliant campaign so far.

And that’s what senior football journalist for the Liverpool Echo, Paul Gorst, has done.

He’s decided to rank Liverpool’s 21 players out of 10 for their performances this season.

And here are the results:

Alisson - 8
Mignolet - 5
Alexander-Arnold - 8
Van Dijk - 9
Matip - 7
Lovren - 6
Gomez - 9
Robertson - 8
Moreno - 5
Milner - 7
Henderson - 6
Keita - 6
Lallana - 6
Fabinho - 8
Wijnaldum - 8
Shaqiri - 7
Mane - 9
Origi - 7
Salah - 8
Firmino - 8
Sturridge - 6

Fulham FC v Liverpool FC - Premier League

Very interesting.

Whatever the 21 players have done this season up until now, there’s still chance for any of them to become a hero.

Just like Divock Origi did in the Merseyside derby back in December, all it takes is one goal that could seal that first ever Premier League title - or even their sixth Champions League.

Not only would they be receiving a 10/10 rating come the end of the season, but they would also be remembered for many years to come at Anfield.
