It was a poor night for Liverpool in the end, despite that for the first fifteen or so minutes they looked the only side in search of a goal. A calamitous spot of defending and a Southampton strike against the run of play later and they were down, at which point the game ground to a half and the hosts eased their way to a defensive 1-0 first leg advantage.
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.
