Liverpool player ratings

Alisson: 6 - Saved one effort from Kovacic but didn’t have a lot to do. Couldn’t get close to Havertz’s header.

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7 - Some lovely passes in the first half and always a threat out wide.

Joel Matip: 7 - Great block to deny Lukaku. Solid display. Always in the right spot.

Virgil van Dijk: 7 - Didn’t have much to do defensively. Almost scored with a low shot.

Andy Robertson: 6 - Lost Havertz a little on the corner for Chelsea’s goal. Looked like he was still recovering from injury.

Harvey Elliott: 7 - Superb display from the teenager. Could have scored a couple in the first half.

Fabinho: 6 - Solid and steady as ever in central midfield.

Jordan Henderson: 6 - Could have scored in the first half. Did his best to get Liverpool going.

Mohamed Salah: 7 - Slammed home his penalty kick and always probing.

Roberto Firmino: 5 - Subbed off with an injury in first half. Didn’t look sharp.

Sadio Mane: 7 - Did really well to win the penalty kick as he caught Havertz out. Worked so hard.

Diogo Jota (42' on for Firmino): 6 - Chose the wrong option on a few occasions. Lively.
Thiago (74' on for Henderson): 6 - Kept things ticking over.
Kostas Tsimikas (87' on for Robertson): N/A

Chelsea player ratings

Edouard Mendy: 6 - Couple of routine stops. Could he have done better on the chance before the penalty was given?

Cesar Azpilicueta: 8 - Proper captain’s display from Azpi. Organized his team so well. Some great clearances.

Andreas Christensen: 8 - Superb central defensive display. Cleared the danger so well. Kept things calm when Chelsea needed him.

Antonio Rudiger: 7 - See above. Very solid and steady. Used his experience.

Reece James: 6 - Unlucky with the red card but once it was given as a handball, he had to be sent off.

Jorginho: 7 - Typically dogged display. Kept things ticking over and his experience helped calm things down in the second half.

N’Golo Kante: 7 - Was excellent when he was on the pitch and covered so much ground. Chelsea will be worried he couldn’t shake off a knock he picked up as he had to come off at half time.

Marcos Alonso: 7 - Some excellent runs down the left and had a good battle with TAA. Showed real quality in the final third.

Mason Mount: 7 - Great quality at times. Kept plugging away.

Kai Havertz: 6 - Superb header for the goal, but switched off to allow Mane to have the chance which led to penalty and red card. Subbed off at half time.

Romelu Lukaku: 6 - Almost scored with a volley which Matip blocked. Chose the wrong pass a few times at key moments, but battled so hard to hold the ball up.

Mateo Kovacic (45' on for Kante): 7 - Did so well to keep the ball. Almost scored when played in.
Thiago Silva (45' on for Havertz): 7 - Kept things so solid at the back. Used his experience.
