With Liverpool’s first team 3400 miles away, it was left up to the club’s most precious babies to defend the Reds’ honour in the least prestigious competition left on the club’s docket. In the end, and despite the scoreline, they absolutely did that, putting up a tremendous effort against a side containing eight full internationals, receiving the harshest possible punishment for any defensive flaw.
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.
