It wasn’t the best day at the office for Liverpool but Ibou Konate was one player who was certainly on form during our loss to Brighton in the FA Cup.

With Virgil van Dijk injured, the Frenchman is battling with Joel Matip and Joe Gomez to try and prove that they should be part of the starting 11 and the 23-year-old is certainly doing a good job of proving himself.
It could have been an afternoon where he received a red card following his clash with Alexis Mac Allister but there were still plenty of other positives for the centre-back.
