New, comments

It’s another win at Anfield for the Reds, who secure their position at the top of the table for another week.

Despite a slow start and conceding an early goal, Liverpool battle back and continue their perfect start to the Premier League season and record winning streak, defeating Newcastle 3-1 after goals from Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah in what ended up another impressively competent performance at Anfield.

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.
