PLAYER RATING against Evaton: As Stefan Bajcetic and two others becomes talking point




Ratings of Liverpool players like Stefan Bajcetic and two others excellent against Everton

Ian Doyle evaluates Stefan Bajcetic and other Liverpool players after Monday’s Merseyside derby against Everton

Alisson Becker 7

Some claimed and convincing crosses with distribution. There’s not much to do in terms of saves.

Trent Alexander Arnold 7

Called on by Everton to step up, but his pass was initially inconsistent, before improvement was seen with an assist for the second.

Joe Gomes 8

He handled Simms’ physique well, winning a series of dogfights and taking advantage of a no-nonsense defense.

Joel Matip 7

Decent enough to come forward, but some of his defense wasn’t convincing before settling down.

Lui joined Nunez in a fight down the left flank and started probing before the break. Deliberate forward drive led to the second goal. Everton annoyed. Booked up.

Fairy 7

Much, much better than lately and the confidence grew as the game progressed. He did the simple things well.

Jordan Henderson 7

Earned cheers from the Kop with some intention to push and tackle, and set a good pace. Freedom to come forward more in the second half. Submerged.

Stefan Baicetic 9

Inconsistent in the first half with enthusiasm and energy, tempered by inexperience with some overambitious passing, but he proved to be a quick learner with a strong performance after the break. Submerged.

Mohammed Salah 8

He was soon having a great time against Mykolenko before being instrumental in starting and then finishing the opener, and involved in the second. His faith is back. subordinate.

Cody Gakpo 7

In the first half he sent an impromptu header wide and nearly a lot before the relief of his opening Liverpool goal led to a fine second-half performance. subordinate.

Darwin Nunez 7

Accidentally created a chance for Gakpo with an overhead kick but excelled at coming out of defense and showing pace to open Salah’s scoring. Live again. subordinate.

Diogo Jota (for Nunez 70) 6

Ring rust was evident after such a long time.

James Milner (for Henderson 80)

A good tackle stops a possible break from Maupay.

Roberto Firmino (for Gakpo 80)

Looking sharp on his return. Naby Keita (for Bajcetic 90) earning bonus.

Harvey Elliott (for Salah 90)

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp talks to his players

Liverpool made three changes to their 24-man Champions League squad in the second half of the season, including Cody Gakpo, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Reds have made full use of their three allocated changes, including their January signing and midfield duo, who were both ruled out in the first half of the season through injury.

Luis Diaz is also included as he continues to recover from knee surgery. The Colombian is expected to return in March so he’s unlikely to face Real Madrid in the round of 16.

With Gakpo, Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain all included, Liverpool have sidelined Calvin Ramsay and Arthur Melo, while Stefan Bajcetic drops to the B-list after two years as a Reds player. Rhys Williams and Kaide Gordon also join the B-list, while Luke Chambers is removed after joining Kilmarnock on loan.

In total, this means that there have been five additions to the combined picklists (Gakpo/Keita/Oxlade-Chamberlain/Williams/Gordon), with two players retiring (Ramsay/Melo) and one moving on (Chambers ).

Ramsay made his Liverpool debut in the Champions League against Napoli in November, but has been limited to just two appearances through injury since he completed his summer move from Aberdeen. With James Milner and Joe Gomez able to play at right-back, Klopp made the decision to drop the 19-year-old.

Meanwhile, Arthur made his only Liverpool appearance to date against Napoli in September, coming off the bench in the last 13 minutes as the Reds were defeated 4-1. The Brazilian will undergo thigh surgery in October and will return to training in the coming weeks, but as Klopp has 10 other major midfielders, the decision has been made to leave the Juventus mercenary out.
