Alisson – 6
Lucky to escape after a poor pass almost let Watford in, but made amends with a great stop from a Roberto Pereyra strike.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7
He was pinned back into a defensive role for most of the game but coped well and landed a hammer-blow free-kick.
Dejan Lovren – 7
No-nonsense. Big, commanding and alert to danger. A good performance in place of Joe Gomez.
Virgil van Dijk – 7
He just oozes cool. Such a calm, yet commanding, display from Liverpool’s defensive cornerstone.
Andrew Robertson – 5
Could have conceded a penalty and failed to make an impact going forward. A bit of an off-day, despite the clean sheet.
Jordan Henderson – 5
Two silly yellow cards have ruled him out of the Merseyside derby. Failed to make much of an impact anyway.
