Player ratings from Crystal Palace's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool...

Wayne Hennessey – 6 – Made routine saves and his distribution was superb.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6 – Won a one v one race between himself and Sadio Mane. Not many full-backs can do that. But his 75th-minute red card ruined Palace’s chances of scoring an equaliser.

James Tomkins – 7 – Kept Roberto Firmino quiet and led by example from the back.

Mamadou Sakho – 5 – He conceded the soft penalty on Mohamed Salah, which James Milner converted. It was clumsy defending.

Patrick van Aanholt – 7 – Always looked threatening going forward and put in some dangerous crosses.

Andros Townsend – 6 – So unlucky to see his long-range strike rattle off the crossbar in the first-half. Did not do much else, though.

Luka Milivojevic – 7 – Kept Palace ticking in midfield. Had a free-kick excellently saved by Alisson.

James McArthur – 6 – He is the engine room in midfield and used the ball smartly.

Jeffrey Schlupp – 4 – He was barely involved in the game. Failed to replicate his solid display against Fulham last weekend.

Wilfried Zaha – 7 – He was Palace’s most dangerous player, unsurprisingly. Every time he got the ball it felt like something was going to happen.

Christian Benteke – 5 – Won most of his aerial battles but was marshalled by Virgil van Dijk.


Alexander Sorloth – 4

Joel Ward – 4

Max Meyer - N/A
