Liverpool participant scores
Didn’t have a lot to do through the 90 minutes and possibly couldn’t have achieved far more to forestall Lookman’s aim.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 5.5/10
Alexander-Arnold’s monitoring again for the Lookman aim was fairly half-hearted and the Englishman struggled to take care of the Leicester winger even after the aim. Was not at his greatest going ahead.
Joel Matip: 7/10
Made his evening a lot tougher when he picked up a yellow card only a few minutes in following a foul on Kelechi Iheanacho.

Virgil van Dijk: 6/10
A extra comfy evening than his centre-back companion. Van Dijk saved Jamie Vardy quiet for giant durations, together with making an outstanding sort out to forestall the striker getting by means of on aim.
The Dutchman, although, most likely might have achieved extra when closing down Lookman earlier than his opener.
Kostas Tsimikas: 6/10
Followers had been clamouring to see extra of Tsimikas after his brilliant begin to the marketing campaign. Nonetheless, the Greek star didn’t cowl himself in glory through the opening 45 on Tuesday.
His attacking output was much less efficient than Robertson’s usually is from the left and his poor defending led to James Maddison almost scoring the opener.
Nonetheless, he did come out a lot sharper for the second half and received an important contact to take the ball away from James Maddison who would have been by means of in any other case.
Fabinho was changed by James Milner after 63 minutes. The Brazilian didn’t do an terrible lot improper when on the pitch. Common.
Jordan Henderson: 6/10

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 3/10

Mohamed Salah: 4.5/10
Gained a penalty for Liverpool early within the tie, however then stepped up and missed from 12 yards. Aside from that, the winger was very quiet on the day. An evening to neglect for Salah.
