Mo Salah was given Carlberg’s Man of the Match award, but many Reds fans disagreed with the decision – suggesting Xherdan Shaqiri was more worthy.
4⃣ contenders for our @carlsberg Man of the Match award. Who gets your vote? 🤔👇

As it was, the player that most Reds fans wanted to win the award wasn’t even listed as an option to vote for!
Salah got the only goal of the game which saw the points head back to Anfield, but Shaqiri was heavily involved, getting on the ball a lot in the midfield area.
As the following tweets show, there was a lot of love for the Swiss winger.
Shaqiri man of the match for me today. Only one that's provided real spark #lfc

For me, Shaqiri has been man of the match. Very cool under pressure. Finding his passes. Great first touches. An assist. Really good performance all round!
