Many Liverpool fans were delighted with the performance of midfielder Thiago Alcantara during his side’s 0-0 draw against Newcastle United.
The 29-year-old made his return to the first-team after two months out after picking up a knee injury against Everton in October.
Thiago thrilled the Anfield faithful in what was a similar performance to the one against Chelsea earlier in the 2020/21 campaign.
Per Sofascore, the Spain international won 100% of his duels, completed all six of his long balls and accumulated a pass success rate of 91%.
Should Thiago start against Southampton?
Unsurprisingly, supporters salivated over his 17-minute comeback and are excited to see more of him in a redshirt.
Fans delighted with Thiago return
“Mad that we haven’t scored here! Thiago showing he’s a Rolls Royce is the brief spell he was on though!”
“Hard to take any positives out of that, other than Thiago’s brief cameo. He is levels above the rest of our midfield and will make a difference. Desperate for Jota to return as well. Attack needs rotation and competition.”
“Thiago might be the most talented midfielder I’ve ever seen at Liverpool. He should probably stay fit for a bit and show the world.”
“On a brighter note…… how good is Thiago, different class”
“Frustrating game. Newcastle aiming for a draw and they succeed. On a brighter note, Thiago Alcantara is back and he was sublime. Can’t wait to see more of him.”
“Only positive was Thiago looking good apart from one or two passes. I love his leap”
