There were times Dortmund looked dominant, but Liverpool fought hard and might even head back to Anfield for the second leg disappointed not to be up a goal given some of their chances. They do at least have the one, though, a potentially invaluable away marker. They also will now feel confident that they can go toe to toe with one of the best sides in football.
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 that month's polls to help choose the Liverpool Offside’s Player of the Month and, come next May, those monthly results will help to determine your Player of the Season for 2015-16.
