Thiago Alcantara remained, as one might imagine, fully invested in proceedings even beyond his substitution during Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Anfield.
The Spaniard earned a comparison with the Kop faithful from one Twitter user, @issam_LFC, after being spotted standing on the bench as the game drew closer to a conclusion.
It’s been nothing short of a delight for supporters seeing last year’s summer signing finally rack up a consistent run of minutes for the first-team after being hampered by injury during the 2020/21 campaign.

That’s Thiago Alcantara there, Liverpool’s number 6, acting like a veteran Kopite. We really are living the dream. pic.twitter.com/GqCGmKs2Xn
