As the Twitter poster suggests, any of Liverpool’s other midfielders play this ball to Neco Williams on the touchline – and that is pretty much a fact.
But the Spaniard looked infield, saw Xherdan Shaqiri, and hit his feet with a pinged no-look pass.
It cut about four Villa players out of the game and led to Salah doing what he does best: finding the back of the net.
Liverpool were atrocious in the first-half, but the game changed upon Thiago’s introduction.
Yes, he’s a Champions League winner – and his opposition tonight got dropped at the stadium by their parents – but he completely changed our game and is already maybe our best player!
Replace thiago with any other LFC midfielder there and that ball goes out wide to Neco williamspic.twitter.com/UxMi9gytLe
