Klopp is mad with rage © Supplied by Sports.fr Jurgen Klopp After Liverpool's defeat at Southampton on Monday night, Jurgen Klopp regretted the few penalties granted to his team. Liverpool is in the hard. The Reds, while they had created a small gap at the top of the Premier League, have just lined up three games without a win, in meetings a priori within their reach (West Brom, Newcastle, Southampton). Worse, the reigning champions have not scored in the last two matches.

How did they do?

Rating

(GK) Alisson

Didn't have much to do but took care of business when needed, including on a late save on Paul Pogba from close. Alert and sturdy as always.

7

(DEF) Trent Alexander-Arnold

Didn't get forward by design with two midfielders playing center-back. Shaky in defense. Just not his best night.

5

(DEF) Jordan Henderson

The captain was solid at center-back, mainly because of his passing ability. He really wasn't busy defensively though as Liverpool dominated play.

7

(DEF) Fabinho

Very good at the back with four interceptions, won all of his aerial challenges and gelled with Henderson. Brought stability in a game where he really wasn't all that busy.

8

(DEF) Andrew Robertson

Created a couple chances down the left, was a sure passer but had trouble creating more opportunities with United sitting back.

7

(MID) Giorginio Wijnaldum

Hard to remember him playing, in all honesty. Didn't see much of the ball and was sloppy at times. Lacked the vision needed to create danger.

4.5

(MID) Thiago Alcantara

Did well to get by players and showed some magical passing, but at times his passes were too heavy. Tried his chance from distance but was denied. Surprisingly, he was superb defensively by cutting off passing lanes.

8

(MID) Xherdan Shaqiri

A surprise start for the Swiss international. Solid all around, had a decent look at goal too and pressed well.

7

(FWD) Sadio Mane

Spent a lot of time on the wing and didn't get into the box all that much. Had just one shot and an xG of 0.05.

5

(FWD) Roberto Firmino

The Brazilian is usually a great passer, but his decision making was questionable in this one. Some passes were just way off, and there we some that he should have made but didn't.

5

(FWD) Mohamed Salah

Really creative, sharp in the final third with his passes but didn't get to threaten all that much. Didn't test the goal once.

How did they do?

Ratings

(GK) David de Gea

Didn't have a whole lot to do but produced a fantastic save on a late shot from Thiago. The Reds' accuracy was off and resulted in a day with few issues.

7

(DEF) Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Did fairly well despite not being called upon much. Was his usual self with sure sliding tackles and quality passing going forward.

7

(DEF) Harry Maguire

On his heels a bit early and didn't look confident but improved as the game went on. Had a fine second half, and overall he intercepted the ball three times, managed to block five shots and won all of his aerial challenges.

8

(DEF) Victor Lindelof

Did very well to stop a great chance for Firmino in the first half with a patient challenge. Was also good in the air. A solid display despite some shaky moments.

Cavani, the best recruit in history?

 Cavani, the best recruit in history? © Supplied by Sports.fr The Uruguayan striker shows the example from MU's side. After long years of suffering, following a dying team on the ground and even detestable on a daily basis - thank you José Mourinho -, the supporters of Manchester United begin to dream of a league title that has eluded them since 2013.

6.5

(DEF) Luke Shaw

Dealt with pressure well defensively and was able to use his turning ability to pass into space.

6.5

(MID) Paul Pogba

He had an amazing chance in the final minutes and blew it, hitting a rocket at Alisson from point-blank range. Also his passing wasn't all that great. Every Liverpool player had a superior passing percentage than Pogba's 58.1 percent.

5

(MID) Fred

Some fantastic challenges in the first half to keep Liverpool from creating. Was a decent presence in the middle despite not looking all that sharp in the second half.

6

(MID) Scott McTominay

Strong defensively in the middle and took his passes with precision and tranquility. Was a rock and even showed off some flair.

7

(MID) Bruno Fernandes

Didn't see a lot of the ball but nearly scored a stunning free kick. Was unusually sloppy in the middle but had some quality looks.

6

(FWD) Anthony Martial

Came off in the second half after having very little to do. Didn't get the service needed and had no shots.

3

(FWD) Marcus Rashford

Finished with just one shot on a free kick from range and an expected goals of 0.06. The service just wasn't there, but he also didn't do a good job setting up others.

4

(SUB 1) Edinson Cavani

A sub appearance where all he was able to do was draw a foul.

5

(SUB 2) Mason Greenwood

A late sub who didn't get into the action.

N/A

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Brought on attackers to try and turn the tide but didn't make nearly enough changes to balance out an uneven game. Would have liked to see some players with creativity inserted, like Juan Mata.

Marcus Rashford had an amazing response to racial abuse on social media .
Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford is continuing to show grace, class, and intelligence in the face of horrific online abuse. Rashford had a lot of racial abuse directed at him after Manchester United’s 0-0 tie against Arsenal on Saturday, but he refused to stoop to their level to respond to it. Instead of posting screenshots of some of the racist tweets, he showed why he’s a role model for kids — and adults — everywhere. Humanity and social media at its worst. Yes I’m a black man and I live every day proud that I am. No one, or no one comment, is going to make me feel any different.
