Player ratings: How Liverpool fared against Bayern Munich

The Reds ultimately failed to unlock their opponents’ stubborn defence.

Alisson

6Our Rating

Looked a little nervy with the ball to feet in the first half and made one or two errors as a result. Was otherwise rarely tested by Bayern, who managed just one shot on target.

6

Trent Alexander Arnold

6Our Rating

Was sloppy at the back on the odd occasion in the first half, but also threatenend going forward with a couple of positive runs.

6

Fabinho

7Our Rating

Did very well given that centre-back is not his primary position, with Liverpool not being made to suffer despite star defender Virgil van Dijk's absence.

6

Joel Matip

7Our Rating

Not someone who has always excelled at Liverpool, but barely put a foot wrong this evening, though he was aided by a rather conservative, defence-minded Bayern display.

6

Andrew Robertson

6Our Rating

Got forward well and produced one excellent cross for Mane in the second half, but his delivery was disappointing at times too.

6

Jordan Henderson

6Our Rating

Had one superb ball to Salah in the first half and made a couple of timely interceptions to stem the visitors' attacks, but couldn't offer the creativity required to unlock Bayern ultimately.

6

Georginio Wijnaldum

5Our Rating

Had one or two nice touches but didn't impact the game in the way midfielders at this level are expected to.

6

Naby Keita

6Our Rating

Worked hard and made a few gut-bursting runs before being replaced by James Milner with 15 minutes remaining.

6

Sadio Mane

6Our Rating

Looked lively, especially in the first half, and appeared the most likely of the Liverpool attackers to score, but was wasteful with his finishing ultimately.

6

Mohamed Salah

5Our Rating

Looked a bit off the boil and faded out of the game like the rest of the Liverpool side, after missing one or two half chances in the first period.

6

Roberto Firmino

5Our Rating

A quiet game in attack. He was a doubt before the match and his underwhelming performance suggests he wasn't 100% fit.

6

Subs: Divock Origi and James Milner weren’t on long enough to rate.
