Liverpool player ratings vs Fulham:
Some strong early saves – otherwise it could have been a hatful for Fulham.
Tidy enough with his deliveries but nothing good enough to unlock the Fulham defence.
Looked uncomfortable with the Fulham attack long before he went off at half-time with a back injury.
Got away with a VAR penalty appeal which might have made Liverpool’s night even worse.
Robertson – 5
Set-pieces were not up his usual high stantdard and nearly got in a mix with Alisson after half-time.
Jones – 7
Strangely, he seemed more determined than his more established team-mate to try to retrieve the situation.
Henderson – 7
Auxiliary centre-back in second half but should have scored when put through on 61 minutes.
Wijnaldum – 6
Seemed a little bit more in his shell than usual – but then his free-kick earned the penalty.
Mane – 7
Looked menacing whenever he got on the ball but it always fizzled out much too quickly.
Firmino – 5
Closely watched by Andersen at all times, he struggled to get a toehold in the game.
Salah – 7
A couple of long-range efforts on a quiet evening but needed no second invitation for the penalty.
Minamino (for Matip ht) 5
Williams (for Alexander-Arnold 68) 5
Origi (for Salah 84) N/A
