Liverpool 2, Newcastle 0: Man Of The Match

New, comments

It was a game in which the Reds never really needed to hit top gear. Now we want you to rate Liverpool’s players and choose your man of the match.

Rafa Benitez put up as good a fight as he could’ve hoped for on his return to Anfield as Newcastle manger, but in the end, a 32nd goal of the season for Mohamed Salah in the first half and a well-worked strike from Sadio Mané in the second were enough to seal the points for Liverpool.

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 2017-18. 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.
