5. Ben Mee 7.7
Marshalled Salah exceptionally well, limiting the Egyptian's threat in front of goal. A superb challenge on the Premier League's leading scorer early on set the tone for the rest of his evening. Reads the game fantastically and saws a header cleared off the line by Phillips.
6. Johann Berg Gudmundsson 6.3
Unable to get involved for large spells of the game as Robertson had the upper hand, but used his experience to take the Scottish full back away to allow Lowton to deliver. Unable to pick out his targets when getting the ball into the penalty area.
7. Dwight McNeil 6.5
Usually runs rings around Alexander-Arnold, but rarely had the opportunity to get at the England international on this occasion. Stung the palms of Alisson at his near post in the first half. Looks in need of a break.
8. Ashley Westwood 6.6
Pressed relentlessly in the first quarter of the game, nicking the ball in key areas for the Clarets, but the Reds eventually turned the screw and played out with ease. Never stopped running, never stopped harassing and refused to give in.
