(Video) Konate’s one-man defensive masterclass in the first-half against Brighton

Posted by

Ibou Konate was a rare shining light in what was a disappointing first 45 minutes against Brighton and the French defender was tested far too often for anyone of a Red persuasion’s liking.

Thankfully for our supporters and for Jurgen Klopp, our No.5 was on form and seemed to be one of the only players that was capable of coping with the onslaught that came our way from Roberto De Zerbi’s side.

Once such show of his defensive prowess came against Evan Ferguson and then Pervis Estupinan, with both men feeling the full force of the 23-year-old powerhouse.

It’s never a good sign when a defender is one of your best players in a first-half but at least he helped ensure that Alisson Becker’s clean sheet remained in tact.

  1. To be honest with the Liverpool family, retaining Salah for his current pay package and letting Mane go cheaply was the worst strategic decision ever made at Liverpool. In fact, piling pressure on Nunez because of his cost to the club is one thing that’s not supposed to be happening. Instead pressure should be on Salah to justify his pay package. He’s the one who should have left Liverpool because almost every ball he gets is wasted. Come on Klop, you are a good Manager but in retaining Salah I’m not sure if I can give you the benefit of the doubt. Another thing that’s glaringly obvious is our midfield absence. How can we win games if our midfield is not there at all? I rest my case.
