Looking to extend their win streak to seven, Liverpool hosted Mark Hughes’ Southampton ahead of a duo of matches against Chelsea. Jürgen Klopp’s side - featuring Xherdan Shaqiri in his first ever competitive start for Liverpool - powered out to a 3-0 lead in the first half. Xherdan Shaqiri and Virgil van Dijk came off, the latter possibly with a rib injury, but Southampton failed to muster any real threat, and that’s how the scoreline stayed.
Now let us know how you saw it. Hitting the up arrow is a vote to move the player up the list—or to help keep them on top. Hitting 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 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 2018-19.
