It’s crazy that Jurgen Klopp had to take off Jordan Henderson for Thiago at half-time, but the skipper and his team-mates were shambolic in the opening 45 minutes.
As a result, Klopp asked Thiago to come on and the Spaniard duly delivered. He looked head and shoulders above every other player on the field, which isn’t a big claim considering he was up against teenagers – but a slightly bigger one when you realise his team-mates are all Premier League champions!
In this compilation, you’ll see it all: Thiago’s passes, his skills, his dribbling, his interceptions…
He’s incredible and we desperately want him to get a run in the side now if this is a sign of things to come.
