Mario Balotelli impressed on his debut, while Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson were key in a dangerous Liverpool attack. At the back, Alberto Moreno was again Liverpool's best defender while Dejan Lovren's tendency to chase the ball was again a concern. Meanwhile, the less said about Steven Gerrard's passing the better. Help us sort through it all by ranking the performances as you saw them.
Clicking the thumbs up button is a vote to move the player up the list—or to help keep the one on top where he is. 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.
