Player Ratings: Who impressed as Liverpool KO'd Manchester United?

Old Trafford

Liverpool made it through to the last eight of the Europa League thanks to a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League thanks to a 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford, giving them a 3-1 win on aggregate following their 2-0 win at Anfield last week.

Anthony Martial struck for the home side from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Nathaniel Clyne to give Louis van Gaal's men some hope of turning around the tie.

Those hopes were dashed when Philippe Coutinho scored a wonderful goal, beating David De Gea at his near post, giving the Reds a crucial away goal that meant United had to score at least four on the night.

Weere it not for De Gea, it could have been much more for the visitors as they picked off the home side who tried to commit men forward in order to get some impetus into their second half performance.

But Liverpool held firm, and will be glad of their place in the last eight. There were some very good performances at Old Trafford from Jurgen Klopp's side, here's how they rated from row seven in the away end:

Simon Mignolet - Fine save from Lingard, could do nothing about penalty, quick thinking got Liverpool on front foot in build up Coutinho strike - 7

Nathaniel Clyne - Thought he struggled at times as they targeted him with pace. No matter how quick you are you are going to have a hairy night in that environment - 5

Dejan Lovren - Solid, thought he read things very well, summed up in that time he managed to step up and get forward himself in the first half - 7

Mamadou Sakho - Did he lose a challenge? Not often I use this word but he was immense - 9

James Milner - Considering he isn't left footed or a full back, it's hard to fault him for his display. Thought he gave Liverpool an extra, and different, option going forward as well - 6

Emre Can - Strong, determined, broke up a lot of play, eventually got to grips with Fellaini - 7

Jordan Henderson - Considering he'd been vomiting/vomited after his withdrawal, I thought he did ok. Hesitant in build-up to penalty, should've scored, but solid with illness - 6

Adam Lallana - A couple of nervy moments but kept Liverpool on the front foot in possession. The kind of player you want in this scenario - 7

Philippe Coutinho - What a goal, what a time, what limbs in the away end! Where it not for De Gea he could've had more - 8

Roberto Firmino - Did what Firmino does, drifts in and out of games and then has bursts of danger - 6

Daniel Sturridge - Thought he did everything but score, hit the bar, isolated defenders. Terrific prior to his withdrawal - 7


Divock Origi - Stretched United all over the place late on, could've got on the scoresheet where it not for De Gea - 6

Joe Allen - Kept hold of the ball well, got up to speed quickly with introduction. Solid - 6

Christian Benteke - The substitution which showed the Reds were smoking cigars nearing the end - N/A
