Many Liverpool fans showered Thiago Alcantara with praise for his performance in Saturday’s victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Reds took three points from Molineux courtesy of Divock Origi’s stoppage-time winner, leapfrogging Chelsea at the top of the table after they were beaten by West Ham United earlier in the day.
Thiago started his fifth consecutive match in all competitions, lining up alongside Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in midfield.
Thiago’s Wolves performance in numbers
The Spaniard earned a SofaScore rating of 7.1/10, having recorded 105 touches – more than anybody else on the pitch.
He completed seven of the 10 long passes he attempted and created a chance for Trent Alexander-Arnold in the first half with an ‘excellent’ pick-out. On the other side of the ball, he was able to chip in with two tackles and two interceptions.
The Liverpool Echo‘s Ian Doyle picked him out as the visitors’ man of the match, and here’s what a selection of Reds fans on Twitter had to say about the 30-year-old’s ‘MOTM’ display.
These Liverpool fans rave about Thiago

“Thiago was immense today”
“Thiago was unreal man”
“Thiago MOTM, incredible footballer”
“Thiago MOTM, this man dictated the whole game, what a player we have man”
In other news, some Reds fans weren’t happy with how this man played today.
