Liverpool maintained their 100 per cent record in this season’s Champions League as a heavily rotated squad beat Midtjylland 2-0. Diogo Jota scored the opening goal when he converted Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross. Substitute Mohamed Salah sealed the win in added time from the penalty spot after he was brought down in the box.
Very little to do as Liverpool dominated possession throughout the clash.
Clever run to break the offside trap and pin-point cross for the opening goal. Also put numerous good deliveries into the box.
Did what was required of him but was withdrawn with a worrying hamstring injury inside half an hour.
Brought the ball out well but had little to do going back towards his own goal.
Most of Liverpool’s work came down the right but the Scot supported the side down the left when required.
His acute ball sent Alexander-Arnold through for the opening goal. Also had some dazzling runs at the defence.
Taken off at half-time but was tenacious as ever in the heart of the team.
Struggled to affect the game going forward. Lacked the creativity needed to unlock Midtjylland’s deep defence.
In the right place at the right time to score the opening goal. Must be giving Klopp food for thought.
Seems to be more effective when brought off the bench. Had little input and was hauled off after an hour.
Battled well against the centre-backs and showed some smart touches bringing others into the game.
