Go on, Sami lad!
Our former colossus central defender Sami Hyypia, a Champions League winner in 2005, of course, was present in Munich last night as Liverpool battered Bayern 3-1 on their own patch.
He would have been mightily impressed with the defensive performances of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, who together, barely allowed world-class Robert Lewandowski a sniff.
Hyypia was serenaded, hugged, kissed and everything in between in the concourse after the game – which brought an enormous smile to his face – luckily!
It’s starting to feel like this could not only be a special season in the Premier League, but in Europe too.
There’s eight games of the campaign left domestically, and eight sides in the Champions League.
Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus are favoured above us, but we believe that under Jurgen Klopp, we can oust any of that formidable trio.
