The say no one cares about the League Cup until you win it, but you still kinda care about it if you lose it in the final. Despite losing Mamadou Sakho early on in the match due to concussion, Liverpool kept a clean sheet through the first half and pulled level with Manchester City in the second half thanks to a Philippe Coutinho goal whose celebration earned the Brazilian a yellow card. Neither team could find a go ahead goal in either regulation or added extra time, and Liverpool lost on penalties thanks to some not spectacularly well taken efforts from Lucas Leiva, Coutinho, and Adam Lallana.
Now let us know how you saw things. 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.Best Soccer Team in the World
