Liverpool were in excellent form as they capped an excellent season with a 3-0 win at home to Middlesbrough, returning to the Champions League.
Liverpool 3-0 Middlesbrough
Premier League, Anfield
May 21, 2017
Goals: Wijnaldum 45+1′, Coutinho 51′, Lallana 56′
Simon Mignolet – 8 (out of 10)
With Boro camping 10 men behind the ball for the majority of the afternoon, Mignolet was forced to keep on his toes for rare openings for the visitors, and coped extremely well.
The Belgian has undergone a marked improvement since the turn of the year, and Jurgen Klopp faces an interesting decision over whether to keep the faith in his current first choice as the Reds embark on a Champions League campaign.
Nathaniel Clyne – 6.5
The right-back has come under criticism for his lack of end product this season, and this was evident once again as Clyne shanked a great opportunity wide in the box in the first five minutes.
He continued to probe down the right, with his endeavour to contribute commendable, but it was more of the same once again from Liverpool’s No. 2.
Joel Matip – 7
It’s been a solid first season for Matip at Liverpool, and the lofty centre-back continued in the same vein against Boro: calm, composed and slick.
When the Reds were struggling for a breakthrough, Matip provided some useful balls into midfield, while his defensive efforts next to a struggling partner were impressive.
