CM: Georginio Wijnaldum – 7
An understated but effective display from the Dutchman who was vital in keeping the pressure on the visitors, recycling possession and filling in as the more attacking members of the side flooded forward.
Got his reward with a tidy finish for the fifth in the closing moments.
CM: James Milner – 8
Got through heaps of defensive work, diligently sweeping up in front of the back four and making a number of key tackles to prevent counter-attacks.
A very impressive display from the veteran, who set the tone with his intensity.
RAM: Xherdan Shaqiri – 8
Shaqiri was handed his first start since January after a torrid time with injuries and didn’t disappoint, getting on the end of Mane’s clever pass to make it 2-0 after 17 minutes.
Caught late by Richarlison but shrugged it off and was a threat with his clever deliveries.
