Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth: Player Ratings

 5 April 2017

Liverpool gifted Bournemouth a late equaliser at Anfield on Wednesday night, with the majority of Reds players not at their best.

Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth

Premier League, Anfield
April 5, 2017

Goals: Coutinho (’40), Origi (’59); Afobe (‘7), King (’86)

Simon Mignolet (out of 10) – 6

Mignolet’s form has been largely good of late, but he was a very frustrating figure at Anfield.

Some nervy early footwork lost all the early momentum Liverpool had – Bournemouth scored soon after – and his ponderous nature on the ball was evident a number of times.

The Belgian couldn’t be blamed for not saving Benik Afobe or Josh King’s strikes, and made no handling errors, but he was not always Mr Popular on Wednesday evening.

Nathaniel Clyne – 7

We could copy and paste so many Clyne ratings this season!

Once again, the birthday boy was solid but unspectacular, offering decent defensive cover but not enough thrust in the final third.

That said, he was better going forward in the second-half, with one superb effort smashing against the crossbar.

Dejan Lovren – 6

After a good performance in the Merseyside derby, Lovren was less impressive this evening.

Although he didn’t do too much wrong, he looked shaky at times in tandem with Mignolet and Ragnar Klavan, and he was given a tougher evening by Afobe than Romelu Lukaku on Saturday.
