Thiago trended on Twitter last night, and when he was subbed early, many Liverpool fans were pleased he was exiting the field before picking up a seemingly inevitable second yellow.
Off the ball, Thiago was tenacious – but gave away some fouls which for lots of Reds – defined his performance.
Granted, it was nowhere near as good as his game against Rb Leipzig, and overall – it was one of his poorer Liverpool performances – but as the below compilation proves, he did plenty of good.
We still think he’s part of Liverpool’s strongest possible midfield – which if everyone was fit – would include Fabinho and Jordan Henderson.
A great balance of power, leadership, running and pizzazz.
