    Gini - he's learned Dalglish's arse push, he's getting Whelan's arm shove, he just had a great game.

    Shaq - a very good, tactically precise, performance.

    Fabinho - very impressed with him - a couple of errors but generally a really promising overall effort. We now have Gomez, who can bring the ball out from defence, and Fabinho, who can travel forward from anywhere - it's a great dimension to have.

    Would have been Shaq if he played the whole game....
    But:

    Gini - brilliant midfield play

    Shaq - so energy

    Fabinho - looks a rolls royce in there

    Everyone played well, and Red Star were far from a pushover.  Difficult to choose but I will go for:

    1, Van Dijk (we tend to take him for granted now),
    2. Shaqiri
    3. Fabinho

    1) Fab
    2) Shaq
    3) Gini
    ------------------
    4) Robertson - really torn between him and Gini on this.
    5) Gomez - just brilliant as usual this season

    That's my pick too.

    VvD, Gomez and Bobby were outstanding too.

    Gutted I can't give more, cos Robbo & VVD really deserve to be there too. Fucking hard this match to pick three.

    Let's hope it's equally as hard from here on for the same reasons!

    I thought Fabs grew into the game, but he had a few really calamitous moments where he was caught on the ball, and at least one of them could easily have led to a goal.  He got better and better – I really enjoyed seeing his tackling, and having his aerial strength in midfield is a handy thing.  But I don't think he was near the top 3.

    Doc, you put Salah in your top 3. Although he scored two goals (which should by anyone's standards seal a place in the top 3 players), I have found myself becoming increasingly irritated by his fluffed chances, wrong decisions, and technical errors. It's feels/sound harsh as I type it (especially as he has just smashed the 50 goals/games record) but he's still not performing right (he's been way off since the CL final) and was not amongst our best players despite the goals.

    Scoring goals is the toughest and most important part of the game.  The way he took his first goal was incredible. It was a great instinctive strike. He also chased and harried all night too.  His work rate was incredible.  He deserves to be in the top 3.

    You're a fine poster, nay a stallion of a man, doc. But you've also never been more wrong in your life.

    Salah didn't rank among the top 10 players on the pitch for kilometres ran, so I don't know what your metric is for assessing an "incredible work rate". He also should have scored or assisted about 6 other sitters that he totally bungled.

    Fabinho, on the other hand ran the second most for Liverpool, but more importantly won more tackles than any other player across all Champions League matches in this round.
