Liverpool: Fans drool over Thiago Alcantara cameo during Aston Villa victory - Aston Villa

Many Liverpool fans showered midfielder Thiago Alcantara with praise after their side’s 4-1 victory against Aston Villa on Friday night.

The Reds advanced to the Fourth Round of the competition at the expense of a radically changed home side, who had a coronavirus outbreak in their camp 24 hours before the game took place.

Sadio Mane scored a brace, along with goals from Mohamed Salah and Georginio Wijnaldum, which secured their ticket for the next stage.

But it was the Reds’ £20m signing who was the talking point after coming on at half-time.

Per Sofascore, Thiago completed 100% of the dribbles that he attempted, won seven out of nine duels and accumulated a pass success rate of 83%.
