Player Ratings for Liverpool’s 3:1 Win Against Southampton: What the Media and Statistics Say
Both Alisson and Darwin Nunez played quite well for Liverpool in their team’s 3-1 victory over Southampton, displaying their abilities. After a fantastic performance at Anfield on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp’s team took a vacation from the World Cup competition.
As a result of Roberto Firmino’s early goal and Nunez’s two goals, Liverpool’s chances of finishing in the top four have been bolstered. Here, we contrast our player ratings with those of readers from the Liverpool Echo, WhoScored, FotMob, and This Is Anfield.
At Anfield, Nunez (8,9) was given the highest rating, taking his total for goals scored for Liverpool to nine in 18 games played. The Uruguayan was outstanding throughout the game against the Saints, dominating play against them and scoring two goals.
While Joanna Durkan of TIA believes that Nunes poses a “threat to the competition,” FotMob points out that the accuracy of his throw is 100%.
Ian Doyle, a member of Echo, made the observation right away that the forward also “produced nice moments” for his teammates, and that his game as a whole has substantially advanced.
Alisson finished in second position (8.1), and the fact that Liverpool won the game demonstrates how good he was as a goalkeeper.
The Brazilian goalkeeper demonstrated unequivocally why he is considered the finest in the world by producing a number of incredible saves, the most impressive of which was one that allowed him to outscore Che Adams in the second half.
Alisson’s performance was deemed “world class” by Durkan, who awarded him a perfect score of ten out of ten points and stated that he “can become a World Cup winner” the next time he plays for Liverpool.
Doyle referred to the 30-year-old closer’s saves as “amazing,” and at times you find yourself wondering where the Reds would be if he wasn’t on the team.
Also placing in the top three were Firmino (8-0) and Andy Robertson (8-0), who excelled in every aspect of the game.
The first player contributed two assists in the first half, which contributed to an outstanding end result, and the second player’s header put the home team on the path to victory.
In terms of the player that performed the worst for Liverpool on this day, it was Mohamed Salah (6, 7), who was quite quiet.
This is the main issue for the Reds until the fourth round of the League Cup on December 22, when they will be travelling to play at Man City.
