Paul Scholes gives special ovation to Thiago after midfield masterclass

Posted by

Paul Scholes was spotted applauding Thiago Alcantara as the midfielder made way in the second-half of action for Naby Keita.

This update comes courtesy of a tweet from the Echo’s Paul Gorst, with the classy playmaker having enjoyed another fine evening dictating the play in the middle of the park for Jurgen Klopp’s title challengers.

The hosts secured an impressive 4-0 victory at Anfield to take the collective score across L4 and Old Trafford to nine goals without a reply from the Red Devils.

After years of United dominance, it was the kind of performance that will have greatly pleased many a Liverpool fan in Merseyside and beyond, with the difference between us and Ralf Rangnick’s men being like night and day.

With a now 22-point gap existing between the two English top-flight outfits, it would most certainly appear (in case it wasn’t abundantly clear in recent years) that our fortunes have switched in dramatic fashion.

We owe a good chunk of our recent classy performances to Thiago too, with the former Bayern Munich man looking a class above his teammates at time – which is saying something in light of the world-class quality we have available.

  1. Scholes summed it up when he said that LFC looked bored at times playing against MUFC. Can’t say I feel sorry for them.
    Fergie looked just as bored in the stands – maybe because he is off HIS perch. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
