Liverpool were dominant for long stretches. They controlled play and had by the far better chances. But they couldn’t take their chances and Leicester City went up 1-0 with their first shot on goal. Soon after they went up 2-0 and as the minutes ticked past in the second half the visiting Reds never looked like fighting their way back into the game on a disappointing night that sees them fall out of the League Cup at the first hurdle.
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 wish to vote will have to navigate to the front page and re-enter the story to access the non-AMP version of it.
