Liverpool were the better side for 20 minutes but couldn't score, and when you have your chance and can't score against a side like Madrid, the outcome can begin to seem inevitable. And on this night, the outcome soon began to seem inevitable. There were some solid performances in midfield again, but as has been the case too often this season, striker remains an issue and there were key defensive breakdowns.
But let us know how you saw it. Clicking the thumbs up button is a vote to move the player up the list—or to help keep them on top. Hitting thumbs down is a vote to push that player closer to the bottom. It's half Man of the Match poll and half player rankings, and we want to use it to find out who you think played well after each Liverpool match and, at the other end, who you'd maybe like to see given the next game off.
At the end of the month we'll go back through the results of that month's Ranker polls to hold a Player of the Month vote. Then, at the end of the season, the monthly results will help to determine The Liverpool Offside's Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season.
