Liverpool competed against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano earlier tonight as they looked to continue with their winning feature in this UEFA Champions League campaign.

The Reds made a dream start to the contest as they got their noses forward in the eight-minute thanks to Mohamed Salah’s deflected goal. Naby Keita doubled Liverpool’s lead just five minutes later when he found the back of the net with a thunderous strike.

However, Antoine Griezmann scored a quick-successive brace for the Madrid giants which meant that both sides went into the half-time break with a 2-2 scoreline.

Griezmann earned a red card in the 52nd minute which put Atletico at a numerical disadvantage.

The Reds were empowered by the situation and found the winning goal thanks to a Mohamed Salah penalty in the 78th minute. The match ended with Jurgen Klopp’s men getting away with a theatrical 3-2 win from the Spanish capital.

We would be taking a look at how each Liverpool player operated during the match against Club Brugge.

GK: Alisson Becker – 6.5/10

The Brazilian keeper made a couple of huge saves to hinder the opposition from scoring more than twice during the 90 minutes.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7/10

The English right-back strived his best to keep things solid at the back and generated two good chances in the final third.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7/10

Van Dijk made a few significant interceptions inside his half and won his fair percentage of aerial battles. Nonetheless, he won’t be pleased after relinquishing two goals tonight.

CB: Joel Matip – 7/10

Matip was powerful in the air and made some crucial assistance on the defensive end of the field. He was even tidy with his passing.

LB: Andrew Robertson – 7/10

The Scottish full-back didn’t have to do too much defending and masterminded some clear-cut opportunities in the final third. He was also accountable for setting up Mohamed Salah’s opening goal.

CM: Naby Keita – 7/10

The Guinean midfielder got endangered when he was defending inside his half. Still, he earns a pat on the back for scoring a great goal from long range in the 13th minute.

CM: James Milner – 6/10

The veteran midfield ace toiled his socks off as usual but strived to get a foothold in the game.

CM: Jordan Henderson – 6.5/10

The Liverpool captain won the ball back a few times for his side but offered very little going forward.

RW: Mohamed Salah – 8/10

The Egyptian winger kept his terrific form going by bagging a brace tonight. He was lucky to score with his deflected shot early in the game and kept his confidence to slot the ball home from the penalty spot which ensured all three points for his team.

ST: Roberto Firmino – 7/10

The Brazilian forward linked up play well with others around him but didn’t get too many sniffs at goal.

LW: Sadio Mane – 6.5/10

He attempted to be decisive in the final third and put in a lackluster display during his time on the field. He got replaced after the hour mark.

Substitutes:

CM: Fabinho – 6/10

He augmented some bite and steel to Klopp’s midfield.

ST: Diogo Jota – 6/10

The Portuguese striker reaped the penalty which Salah converted to win the game for Liverpool. However, he could have effortlessly given away a penalty himself but got lucky with the referee’s call.

CM: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6/10

He added some stability to Liverpool’s midfield

CB: Joe Gomez – N/A

Gomez barely had any time to make an impact.

RB: Neco Williams – N/A

He came on for the final few minutes of the game.
