Liverpool produced a phenomenal display, littered with individual brilliance, to secure a 2-0 win over top-four rivals Tottenham on Saturday evening.
Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur
Premier League, Anfield
February 11, 2017
Goals: Mane 16′, 19′
Simon Mignolet – 9 (out of 10)
The German may have had strong words with his first-choice stopper in midweek, but he was rewarded with an exceptional display, marked by a series of strong saves and, crucially, a swift, front-footed approach in possession.
Nathaniel Clyne – 8
Liverpool’s full-backs have struggled of late, but Clyne was in excellent form bombing down the right flank on Saturday evening, provided his side with one of their most invaluable outlets.
With Heung-Min Son struggling to support the hapless Ben Davies, Clyne interchanged regularly with Sadio Mane, with his relentless support giving the Reds another dimension moving forward.
Joel Matip – 8
Recent appearances had seen Matip more hesitant at the back, no doubt due to his time on the sidelines, but this victory saw Klopp’s defensive stalwart return to form.
He was strong and timely in his defensive work, and as progressive as ever in possession, providing that line-breaking presence with a host of incisive balls forward into attack.
