Have to start this article with saying get well soon to young Harvey Elliott. An unnecessary challenge and it looks like he will be out long-term. He has been absolutely phenomenal since he came into the side, playing a different position.
His link-up play with Alexander-Arnold and Salah has been immense and he looks a real prospect for the future. Whoever comes in to replace him for the upcoming games will have big shoes to fill. Hopefully our Harvey will be back sooner rather than later.
Record Breaker Salah – as usual.
Mohamed Salah now has 100 league goals in 162 games, this puts him 5th in the all time premier league standings, just underneath Thierry Henry and miles above Robbie Fowler. He’s not even a striker. He is just phenomenal and just seems to be getting better. Apparently a ‘one season wonder’, think we can now call him a 5 season wonder, he’s just boss.
He’s started this season in great form with goals against Norwich, Chelsea and now Leeds. He’s well on track for another 30+ goals in all competitions, maybe just the premier league. Get that contract signed Michael Edwards, or Klopp, just get it done so we can see Mo score goals for Liverpool until the day he retires.
Fab and Thiago mop everything up like a hoover
Fabinho is just immense and breaking up play between the lines and stopping counters. So many times today – especially first half, he was getting interceptions in and stopping fires when Leeds tried to break on the counter. Thiago was also at it – so many interceptions and did a great job in the ‘Gini’ role, he had the ball in the net but was unfortunately offside – still got a rendition of his song mind you. Good assist for Mane as well. Looks like he hasn’t been away really, he’s just a class player. Both Fabinho and Thiago are going to be massive for us if we are to make a title challenge this season.
Alisson the calmest guy around
The holy goalie can just do it all. He can pass, he can save, and also score when he feels like it. When required today he was just immense. Calmed everyone around him and made sure that we kept the clean sheet. He never looked phased even when they decided to shoot from about 70 yards. The rest over the international break probably did him wonders, so glad we had him today, hopefully we have him all season. Having the best goalkeeper in the business is always a positive, even while Joel Matip is having a worldie every game.
Matip the most underrated defender in the league?
Joel Matip – the defender who got injured back in January for 6 months – has looked outstanding this season. He looks like he wasn’t even injured. Everything he had to do in defence he did perfectly, and even ventured into the number ten position for half the second half. He might even be playing better than Virg at the moment, our Joel might even be at the form he was on the road to Madrid. If we can somehow keep him fit for a majority of games, he will be a huge asset this season. Probably one of the best free transfers ever.
All in all, a professional performance once again for our reds. We are looking strong in multiple areas, just looks a little scared after Harvey’s injury, we go again against Milan and hopefully get off to a strong start. Up the reds. You’ll Never Walk Alone.
