After every Liverpool match, we poll Liverpool Offside readers to find out who their Man of the Match was. After every month, we go back through the results as we look to name the Player of the Month. Or at least we mostly do this. Occasionally, though, something big happens in the world of Liverpool that rather gets in the way.
Something big like Brendan Rodgers being sacked and Jürgen Klopp being named the club's new manager. Still, thanks to the interminable nature of the international break, we at least have plenty of time to make up for that oversight, and so—belated though it may be—while we've got a few quiet hours to pass, we want to find out who your Player of the Month for September was.
Nathaniel Clyne ran away with the award for August, while Philippe Coutinho came second. Due to the inconsistent start to the season, nobody else made much of a mark, at least not consistently. Still, there was room for Christian Benteke, Martin Skrtel, Alberto Moreno, and Danny Ings to be given honourable mentions, and it is the last two who for many will be last month's favourites.
With five points awarded for a Man of the Match performance through to one point for finishing fifth in voting, Ings leads the way with 18 earned points while Moreno is the only other player to crack double figures with 13. This is hardly surprising, as Ings' goals and Moreno's industry down the left flank were for many the highlights of an otherwise uneven September.
Mamadou Sakho, Jordan Rossiter, Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, and Christian Benteke round out the slate having earned nine, seven, six, five, and five points respectively. But do those week to week results fairly reflect who Liverpool's best player in September was? Leave your vote to let us know how you saw things.
