Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: Player Ratings

Liverpool stopped their bad run of form by holding top of the table Chelsea to a draw, in a game the Reds dominated for long spells.

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

Premier League, Anfield
January 31, 2017

Goals: Wijnaldum; Luiz

Simon Mignolet (out of 10) – 7

The goalkeeper has been in good form of late, and he turned from zero to hero on Merseyside.

He has to be held partly responsible for the game’s opening goal, as his switching off allowed David Luiz to thunder a brilliant free-kick past him.

The Belgian made a superb save to deny Diego Costa from the penalty spot, though – how crucial might that be in May!

Nathaniel Clyne – 6

The 25-year-old has been out with a rib injury, and he wasn’t himself on a soaking wet night at Anfield.

Too often, Clyne chose the easy option rather than trying to hit the byline, and he appears to be playing with a lack of confidence.

That said, he was defensively as sound as ever, and improved after the break.

Joel Matip – 6

It was always going to take time for Matip to get back into his groove, and he never looked entirely comfortable up against the pesky Costa.

A few shaky touches on the ball put Liverpool in precarious situations, and he generally didn’t lack the authority he did prior to injury.

He gave away the spot kick, having been adjudged to have brought down Costa.
