Jack Lusby 8 April 2017
Liverpool produced a hallmark Jekyll-and-Hyde performance as they fought back to secure a priceless 2-1 victory away to Stoke City on Saturday.
Stoke City 1-2 Liverpool
Premier League, Britannia Stadium
April 8, 2017
Goals: Walters 44′; Coutinho 71′, Firmino 72′
Simon Mignolet – 8.5 (out of 10)
Despite Stoke enjoying the best of the chances in the first half, Mignolet had a relatively quiet opening 45 minutes, but was called into action shortly after the break.
The Belgian managed to get low and make an incredible save to deny Charlie Adam from point-blank range, and then made another with the Reds 2-1 up to stop Saido Berahino. Phenomenal.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6
Having been expected to occupy either a central berth in midfield or a wider duty in attack, Alexander-Arnold was deployed in a more regular position at right wing-back.
Was targeted by the Potters’ attack, with Marko Arnautovic seeing a lot of the ball, but was excellent driving forward, with his delivery from the right-hand side always threatening.
Joel Matip – 5
It was difficult to pin down quite why the No. 32 was on the pitch until the closing stages, however, with the Reds’ backs-to-the-wall approach undermined by some shoddy positioning.
