4 underperformers vs Newcastle: ratings
Gini Wijnaldum 5
In and out of the game, as is his way. Hit the post in the first half, but did precious little of note in the second despite seeing plenty of the ball. Wait for an away goal goes on.
Joe Gomez 5
Saw loads of the ball in the first half, but Newcastle were perhaps fine with that? His delivery from the right was below par. Defensively started well but grew more and more nervous. Booked.
Sadio Mane 5
Not great in the first half, so was switched to the right flank for the second half. It didn't have much of an effect.
Daniel Sturridge 5
Started well but faded. Didn't hold the ball up well enough. Missed a good chance at the start of the second half after Clark's error, and ran offside on more than one occasion when Liverpool were well placed. Not a great afternoon.
