“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.”
