Alisson Becker8

Lui made a good stop to deny Vinicius in the first half and then produced an even better save by the same player in the final quarter. Big moments where he mattered.

Trent Alexander Arnold 8

You end up with effort and the creative hub of Liverpool, especially when you come into midfield. Strongly defended where needed. Noteworthy. Virgil van Dijk8

Excellent defending from Wilson’s cross in front of his own goal and dominating in the air. Read the game well after the break as Fulham probed.

Ibrahima Konat 7

Encouraged the crowd with some sliding tackles and good decisions. Almost caught by Willian in the second half.

Kostas Tsimikas 6

Mixed bag that often balances inconsistent distribution and questionable positioning brilliantly. Submerged.

Fairy 7

He was often surrounded by several Fulham players in the first half but kept his composure and covered the defense well. Decent display.

Jordan Henderson6

He got through the work but failed to make enough impact before the break but improved in that respect in the second half.

Curtis Jones6

Lively performance in the first half with some sharp accents and strong pressure. However, escaped a loose pass in the second half from midfield. subordinate.

Mohammad Salah 7

Caused Fulham problems down the right flank and ended the first half with clever footwork. Made his penalty effortlessly but missed a great chance after the break. subordinate. Darwin Nunez 6

Didn’t lack for effort but grew increasingly frustrated at making the wrong call and being slightly on the wrong page but reacted sharply to win the penalty. subordinate.

Luis Diaz 8

I saw a wide deflected effort and a real threat when pushing from the left or from deep. Another great idea. subordinate. Andy Robertson (for Tsimika 66) 6

Refused to fire when in good position.

Cody Gakpo (for Diaz 66) 7

Brought class and composed passing when introduced on the left flank.

Diogo Jota (for Nunez 83)

More minutes for the Portuguese.

Harvey Elliott (for Salah 84)

Cameo against his former club.

James Milner (for Jones 84)

Wasted no time getting in.


Liverpool step up attempts to buy Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton

Brighton are confident of striking a deal to sign James Milner this summer when his contract expires at Liverpool, who have stepped up their attempts to buy Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton.

An agreement between Milner and Brighton is getting closer as discussions continue regarding the offer to the 37-year-old, who made his first Premier League appearance in November 2002 and has played in England’s top division in every season since. He has made 27 league appearances this season, 21 of those as a substitute.

Brighton want to make Milner their second signing after João Pedro, who will join from Watford on July 1st in a £30m deal. The 21-year-old Brazilian striker has completed a medical and an official announcement will follow.

Liverpool’s pursuit of Mac Allister has led them to present details of their financial proposal and project to the Argentina international. Although talks are advancing there is no agreement for the 24-year-old, who is expected to leave Brighton. – Guardian


Former Anfield ace could have a big say in where Liverpool ‘role model’ goes next – report

One former Liverpool player could reportedly have a big part to play in where a current Anfield favourite goes next.

According to 90min, Brighton are working to complete a deal for James Milner, whose contract with the Reds expires next month, with the Seagulls believing that they’re close to securing an agreement with the 37-year-old.

The report also stated that his ex-teammate Adam Lallana – who made that very move on a free transfer three years ago (BBC Sport) – has ‘played some part in helping seal the deal’, assuming that the south coast club finalise the prospective signing of the veteran one-time Manchester City midfielder.

Milner has been hailed by Jurgen Klopp as a ‘role model’ in the past (The Guardian), often being held up as a shining example of the professionalism that every Premier League footballer should demonstrate on and off the pitch.

While he mightn’t be a first-team regular any longer – starting just six top-flight matches this term – he’s often deployed as a substitute (Transfermarkt), with his experience frequently helping to offer reassurance as Liverpool seek to close out narrow victories.

It now looks a near-certainly that he’ll sadly move on from Anfield next month, but Brighton could be an ideal destination for him, given their upward trajectory under Roberto De Zerbi.

The Seagulls are well in the mix to qualify for Europe for the first time, which next season would bring the need for a deeper squad and plenty of rotation.

That should give Milner plenty of opportunities to feature, with his manager and teammates bound to appreciate the vast experience he’s accumulated in terms of European football, having played on the continent for four different clubs (Transfermarkt).

Lallana has been enjoying semi-regular starts at Brighton, having fallen to the periphery in his final couple of seasons at Liverpool (WhoScored), so the 37-year-old may look at his former Reds teammate and see a window to enjoy plenty of game-time on the south coast.

He and the Seagulls could be a perfect match for one another, and an ex-Anfield ace could possibly hold the key to creating that union.
