When something isn't working, you try something new. Unless you're Liverpool this season. Then you stick with 4-3-3 and Mario Balotelli, despite that he was working hard, continuing to look out of his element leading the line on his own. Rodgers changed things after an hour, with two up top finally giving Liverpool an attacking edge, but the breakthrough never came and in the end it was a disappointing result.
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.
