Liverpool star brutally savaged by L’Equipe with rating WORSE than Alisson despite keeper’s blunder | The Sun

BRUTALLY harsh critics L'Equipe have slammed one Liverpool star and handed him with a worse rating than Alisson despite his blunder.

Jurgen Klopp's side were destroyed by Real Madrid 5-2 in their Round of 16 Champions League tie.

Liverpool went 2-0 up but were handed a route back into the game when Vinicius Junior closed down goalkeeper Alisson, who saw his clearance hit the Brazilian and drop into the goal.

Yet the stopper's performance was not the lowest ranked by the French newspaper.

They handed Alisson a 3/10 and Joe Gomez scored just a 2/10.

L'Equipe tore into the 25-year-old's display writing: "Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly regret having put him in place of Joel Matip.

"The English defender, who was very feverish in defence, was involved in all the goals conceded.

"He is too easily erased by Vinicius for the first and he puts Alisson in difficulty with his back-pass on the second.

"He causes the free-kick which results in the third, he deflects the ball on the fourth and is very apathetic on the fifth.

"Klopp ended his nightmare by replacing him with Matip in the 73rd minute."

On Alisson's nightmare night, L'Equipe said: "He commits a serious blunder, which allows Real to equalise at 2-2, at a time when Liverpool gave the impression of managing the match.

"Apart from a splendid save on a curled shot from the Vinicius in the first half, the Reds goalkeeper failed to be decisive during this shock, proving to be totally helpless on the three goals conceded in the second half."

The rest of the Liverpool squad were also harshly rated with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Stefan Bajcetic and Cody Gakpo all getting 4/10s.

Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson and Darwin Nunez both got fives and Mohamed Salah received a six.

In contrast, Vinicius got the highest with a nine and Karim Benzema scored an eight.

Thibaut Courtois got a 3/10 after his shocking blunder for Salah's goal.

In the dugout, Klopp rated at just a three and Carlo Ancelotti a seven.
