Liverpool player ratings vs Union Saint-Gilloise: Ryan Gravenberch deserves a Premier League opportunity! Reds midfielder makes case to replace suspended Curtis Jones with match-winning Europa League outing

Liverpool made it two wins from two in the Europa League group stages as they ran out 2-0 winners over Union Saint-Gilloise at Anfield on Thursday. Ryan Gravenberch's first goal for the club got things going, with the Dutch midfielder capping an encouraging performance with a tap-in after a handling error from goalkeeper Anthony Moris.

Jurgen Klopp made nine changes to his side from Saturday's controversial defeat at Tottenham, but that did not stop them dominating possession from the off. Mohamed Salah was denied by Moris early on, while Darwnin Nunez missed what should have been a tap-in after being played in by the Egyptian forward.

Gravenberch eventually broke the deadlock after Moris spilled Trent Alexander-Arnold's low effort at his feet shortly before half-time. Klopp made three substitutions at the break, which led to the hosts losing some rhythm in the second period, though Diogo Jota and Gravenberch both saw efforts tipped over by Moris while Luis Diaz hit the post, albeit he looked offside in the build-up (though you never can be sure these days!).

Belgian side Union pushed for an equaliser in the final 20 minutes, but they barely tested Alisson Becker before Jota sealed the victory with a stoppage-time strike.
