Liverpool Player Ratings for a splendid win over Porto | Thiago rated 9.5

- Advertisement -

Here we have with us the Liverpool Player Ratings in their impressive win against Porto. One of the tightest game of the week as Liverpool took down Porto 2-0 at Anfield in their Champions League clash on Wednesday.

A rather close win was enough to seal the victory for the Reds. With 15 pts, Jurgen Klopp’s side are sitting top of the table without losing a single game and have already qualified for the next round.

The chances in the first half were 50-50. The Merseyside outfit were struggling a bit in defense with defender Ibrahima Konate making unnecessary fouls. However, the Porto players could not capitalize on the chances laid out to them and only managed to get close.

The Reds had a bright start in the second half after a phenomenal strike from Thiago Alcantara who brought the lead. The Portuguese side struggled to cope up with the English side’s dominance and conceded another by none other than Mohamed Salah.
