Player ratings of Liverpool after the 3-1 defeat to Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup.
Liverpool’s return to action ended in defeat as they fell to a 3–1 defeat to Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup.
Fabio Carvalho was on the side of goal Jurgen Klopp, who used the game to give many of his team minutes.
And the Reds missed a bonus point as they lost the penalty shootout 5-3.
Liverpool made a dream start and took the lead within the first minute when Carvalho tapped in from close range.
The Reds should have been 2–0 up in the 14th minute when Roberto Firmino gave his side a penalty. However, Mo Salah saw his attempt saved.
And Lyon punished Klopp’s side when they equalized four minutes before the break through ex-Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Liverpool made a series of changes at half-time and in the second half. Predictably, they lost momentum and Lyon took the lead through Bradley Barcola in the 65th minute.
And the Ligue 1 side secured victory in the 83rd minute as Lacazette scored his second of the game.
This is how we rated the Liverpool players.
