Liverpool headed towards match-day 6 as the favorites for the game at home against Hull City. They displayed a brilliant performance against 10 man Hull City James Milner scored two penalties, the brilliant performances of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana were both rewarded with goals, while Sadio Mane was also on the score-sheet as substitute David Meyler converted the visitors’ only real chance. Manager Jurgen Klopp made a big decision by dropping the Belgium goalkeeper Mignolet and introducing their summer signing Loris Marius making his Premier League debut. The German was unable to keep a clean sheet, but displayed a great performance.
Adam Lallna and Coutinho. Were the star of the star of the match, lalllana opened the score with a low show shot. Ahmed Elmohamady saw red for handball in box, led to penalty which wad converted by Milner. Sadio mane added 3rd for the the Liverpool . David Meyler lashed in for Hull but Coutinho long-range shot and Milner second penalty too game far away from the visiting side.

Klopp’s technical approach can been seen on the field with everyone looking to score and helping in creating play. Hull doesn’t got much to enjoy only 1 consolation goal from Meyler. Standing 12th with 7 points for 6 games.
Should have come for corner when Hull scored.
Early skirmish aside, spent the day attacking.
Should have scored early, very comfortable
One early mistake, but passed ball very well.
Booked. Got forward with some intent and zeal. Liverpool’s utility man scored a couple penalties in the win.
Lallana 9/10 MOTM
At the heart of everything, gets better and better
Settling into role, looks like class act in middle
Has energy, skill and pace with is decent combo!
Not his best game, but still made a decent amount of contribution.
His guile is an important part of this Reds team
Game made for him, and exploited space brilliantly
Sturridge 7/10 (Lallana 69)
Can 6/10 (Henderson 73)
Grujic 6/10 (Coutinho 73)
Unlucky with penalty, and could hardly be faulted
Sent off. Not the brightest; handling on line killed team
Tough day at office, but passed ball well at back
Led from front in what was always a losing cause
Really tough job keeping tabs on Mane on right
Booked. Early card made life really difficult in middle
Lots of energy but role confined to fire-fighting
Looked a little lost as chased shadows.
Took a heavy knock and seemed to struggle after.
Saw so little of the ball he could have sat in the crowd.
Little time to impress as subbed early through red card
Myler 6/10 (Diomande 33)
Henriksen 6/10 (Mason 72)
