There was as much bad as good for Liverpool. A misplaced pass to go with every quality attacking break. A turn into traffic for every slick dribble. An missed opportunity for every chance created. In the end, though, a late goal worked by substitutes Mario Balotelli and Adam Lallana gave the hosts the three points they deserved on the run of play and closed the gap with Spurs to one in the table.
Now 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.
