Liverpool's side may have been depleted but Diogo Jota and Andrew Robertson stepped up to ensure the Reds secured a 3-0 win over Leicester that was likely easier than they would have imagined.

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Diogo Jota: 8.1

The Portuguese has proven himself to be much more than just a back-up to the established front three, as he scored in his fourth Premier League game in a row at Anfield.

Andrew Robertson's cross was precise, Jota's flashing header quite brilliant, complementing an excellent display where he should have got at least one more goal.

James Milner: 8.1

It is testament to the fitness and drive of James Milner that even with Trent Alexander-Arnold out with an injury, Milner slotted in at right-back and didn't miss a beat.

His performance was all-energy and all-action against a Leicester side that clearly tried to target that flank. But he didn't give either Harvey Barnes or James Justin an inch, and rounded off a superb display by assisting Roberto Firmino's much-needed goal.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Jonny Evans: 5.3

Evans is regularly the most consistent performer in the Leicester side but from his early own goal, grappling with Sadio Mane before heading past Kasper Schmeichel, he set the tone for a poor evening.

He was dragged out of position for Liverpool's second goal, allowing Jota to sweep in and score, and in truth if the Reds had won by four or five there could have been no complaints.

STAR MAN

Andrew Robertson: 8.4

Much of the attacking impetus from full-back had to come from Robertson here due to Trent's absence and he duly delivered, proving to be a constant menace in Leicester territory.

His pinpoint cross found the head of Jota for the key second goal and swung in a game-high 11 crosses, while creating two Big Chances in the process. Given the amount of football Robertson has played, this was another impressive outing.
