After a very solid first half with some very good performances, the entire team looked knackered in the second half. Still, there were some very solid performances. Adrian made several huge saves, including some that were deemed offside. He’s really stepped into the starting keeper and taken command of the box. Trent Alexander-Arnold said he wanted to score more goals, and boy did he deliver with a rocket of a free kick. He also put in some dangerous balls as is the norm, and stepped up defensively even when he was dragging in the second half. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho were everywhere in the first half in particular, shutting down passing lanes and providing some delicious passes.
