Liverpool 4, RB Salzburg 3: Man of the Match

After the Reds pick up their first Champions League win of the season in an Anfield shootout, we want you to rate your man of the match.

RB Salzburg came to Anfield and produced exactly what was advertised: a high-intensity gegenpressing shootout. After taking a first-half three-goal lead, the hosts subsequently slowed down, and some lax defending paired with a couple of excellent finishes saw the visitors level the scores, before the Egyptian king himself pounced on a Roberto Firmino flicked header to finish it off for the Reds.

With our favoured polling tool out of service, we’re instead giving you a choice between a few of the players we thought looked best today for the Reds, so make your choice below and vote for who you think should be the man of the match—or take to the comments to let us know that we got it wrong by leaving the real man of the match off the list entirely.

As always, anyone visiting on Apple News or Google AMP who wish to vote and can’t see the poll can make it visible by navigating to the front page of The Liverpool Offside and re-entering the story.
