Liverpool Football Club are back. The Premier League is back. Put aside the result for now— we get to watch this team every week again. We can sort out the results later. Today is a celebration. And despite having to settle for a point against Watford, there’s plenty of good to take away from this match. Not least is Roberto Firmino, whose penalty goal and assist is enough for us to name him our Man Of The Match, the first of the 2017-18 campaign.
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. Those visiting on Google AMP who can't see the poll can leave their vote for Man of the Match in the comments.
