Liverpool: Fans criticise Thiago Alcantara during Manchester City encounter

Liverpool: Fans criticise Thiago Alcantara during Manchester City encounter - Liverpool News

Many Liverpool fans were critical towards midfielder Thiago Alcantara during his side’s mammoth Premier League clash against Manchester City on Sunday.

The 29-year-old started the match in the middle of the park alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones, while Fabinho and Jordan Henderson dropped to become the makeshift centre-back pairing once more.

Thiago, who arrived from Bayern Munich last summer, got himself booked after just three minutes following an unnecessary challenge on Citizens’ midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

This booking was his third of the campaign and is starting to build a reputation as an aggressive challenge, but not necessarily getting the ball on every occasion.

Should Thiago be dropped?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With this in mind, some supporters were not happy about the level of tackling that the Spaniard has brought to the midfield, despite the squad being heavily disjointed due to their recent injury crisis.
