It was touch-and-go at points, but Liverpool got the job done. An early goal thanks to a thundering header by Georginio Wijnaldum gave Liverpool the edge they needed, and solid midfield work helped nail down all three points. An admirable team effort, to be sure, but we're going to give the MOTM nod to Adam Lallana. His assist on Gini's goal gave him more goals + assists than any other Premier League midfielder, and his strong work on both sides of the pitch (including a late effort to break up a play that could've given City an equalizer) made him an indispensable part of today's proceedings.
Now let us know how you saw it. Hitting 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 power ranking, 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 through the results of the month's polls and vote The Liverpool Offside’s player of the month and, come next May, those monthly results will help to determine your TLO player of the season for 2016-17.
