Liverpool grinded out a convincing 3-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road without having to produce their best football on Saturday afternoon.
Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino struck to down the Hornets.
The Reds were boosted by some top performances in defence, while their attacking talents purred throughout, though fingers could be pointed at the midfield.
Take a look below to reveal the Liverpool player ratings against Watford.
Alisson – 6
Lucky to escape after a poor pass almost let Watford in, but made amends with a great stop from a Roberto Pereyra strike.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7
He was pinned back into a defensive role for most of the game but coped well and landed a hammer-blow free-kick.
Dejan Lovren – 7
No-nonsense. Big, commanding and alert to danger. A good performance in place of Joe Gomez.
Virgil van Dijk – 7
He just oozes cool. Such a calm, yet commanding, display from Liverpool’s defensive cornerstone.
Andrew Robertson – 5
Could have conceded a penalty and failed to make an impact going forward. A bit of an off-day, despite the clean sheet.
Jordan Henderson – 5
Two silly yellow cards have ruled him out of the Merseyside derby. Failed to make much of an impact anyway.
Georginio Wijnaldum – 5
Didn’t do a great amount in the middle of the park, quiet by his high standards in 2018/19.
Xherdan Shaqiri – 6
Failed to bring much intensity to the game, but no glaring errors in attack.
Roberto Firmino – 7
His new role is a lot deeper, and he doesn’t always look comfortable there, but he still threatened with a few shots and grabbed a goal.
Sadio Mane – 8
Two assists in the second half marked an outstanding 45-minute spell from the Senegalese star.
Mohamed Salah – 8
On another day he could’ve recorded one or two more goals. A constant thorn in Watford’s side and landed the first blow.
