Nick Pope 6

Good saves from Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexander-Arnold. Could have been more commanding for winner

Phil Bardsley 6

Got up in support of Gudmundsson when he could but crossing not as accurate as it has been

James Tarkowski 7

Wore a cast to protect his broken hand but never shirked a challenge. One good block on Oxlade-Chamberlain

Ben Mee 8 (Man of the Match)

Didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. Terrific piece of defending to deny Solanke in the first half and always had his number, while he read the game brilliantly at times to keep Liverpool’s attack at bay.

Charlie Taylor 7

Distribution and crossing much improved and played a part in equaliser, but left-hand side exposed for Mane’s goal

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 7

Looked a danger again with some jinking runs and got the goal recent performances have deserved

Jack Cork 6

Took a while to get going, with some unusually wayward first half distribution and looked off the pace

Steven Defour 7

Two games in three days looked to sap the zip from his game, but still looked a creative threat at times

Scott Arfield 7

Came close with a clever first half effort and looked a threat in the final third with some clever movement

Jeff Hendrick 5

Almost played his side into trouble late in the first half with a wayward pass and didn’t do enough to hold ball up

Ashley Barnes 6

His mis-judged header from Pope’s clearance brought a laugh to Turf Moor, but he troubled Lovren and Klavan


Sam Vokes for Hendrick (71)
Nahki Wells for Arfield (86)
