Meslier: Raced out of goal and enabled Mane to finish easily to put Liverpool ahead. Made some other decent saves, but almost embarrassed from a corner late on. 6

Ayling: Jota was an irritant for the home defence at times, Ayling included. Provided a lovely pass for the chance which saw Bamford hit the bar. 6

Llorente: Some decent blocks, but a weak back header almost let in Jota in the first period. The saviour at the end with a defender's header. 7

Struijk: Showed a nice range of passing at times. Tested defensively. 6

Alioski: Alexander-Arnold posed problems for him and Harrison, but made a key first-half tackle to deny Jota. Booked. 6

Phillips: Tried his best, but it was Liverpool who controlled midfield in the half. Kept going. 6

Costa: Struggled to get into the game on his promotion to the starting line-up. 5

Dallas: Did not hit the heights of Manchester City and had a quiet night. Booked. 6

Roberts: Bielsa was on his case a bit without the ball. Fired a low shot at Alisson in the first half and set up a chance for Harrison with lovely footwork. Also spurned a chance late on. 6

Harrison: Switched off for the first goal and found it difficult defensively at times. Denied by Alisson from close range and had an impact at the end. 6

Bamford: Should have scored in first half, but touch was heavy. Held the ball up nicely in the second period and tried to instigate a positive response from Leeds and saw a lob hit the bar. 6

Substitutes: Poveda (Costa 67). Helped pep up Leeds and posed problems. 7

Klich (Alioski 79), 6; Hernandez (Roberts 86).
