Andy Robertson and Divock Origi came up with the goals which eventually broke the Toffees’ resistance in the second half, and The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) were for Everton on the day:
Michael Keane (6.6)
Admittedly tied with both Demarai Gray and Anthony Gordon here in terms of rating (6.6), Keane ranks in third here given that the former did not complete the full 90 minutes and the latter showed some promise going forward.
Should Keane start for Everton?
Keane made just one tackle and failed to block any shots on the Everton goal, while his 31 touches were fewer than any outfield Liverpool starter managed. He was also guilty of giving the ball away 12 times, the fifth-most out of his teammates.
Jordan Pickford (6.4)
After conceding two goals, goalkeeper Pickford was given a 6.4 overall rating.
The England international gave away possession cheaply on no fewer than 15 separate occasions from his 26 touches, and he only made two saves in total.
Mason Holgate (6.3)
With a 6.3 rating given, Holgate ranked as the Toffees’ worst player on the day.
The defender lost out on two of his duels and failed to record any interceptions or tackles, also losing possession six times from his mere 16 touches of the ball.
