‘Terrific’ – Danny Murphy blown away by one Liverpool player’s performance against Chelsea

Posted by

Danny Murphy was impressed by one Liverpool player in particular during the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took the lead inside 20 minutes after a lovely move was finished off by Luis Diaz however the Londoners equalised before half time through Axel Disasi.

New Liverpool signings Dominic Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister both started the game and showed glimpses of their potential in the middle of the park and the former in particular left ex-Red Murphy very impressed.

“He was terrific by the way, very positive performance,” the 46-year-old told Match of the Day 2 (via The Boot Room). “Liverpool fans delighted with what they have seen.”

He’s an energetic, forward-thinking player and there’s no doubt that the likes of Mo Salah, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota will thrive with the 22-year-old suppling them from midfield.

Szoboszlai scored ten goals and assisted another 13 for the Bundesliga outfit last term (across all competitions) and he’ll be looking to produce similar numbers for Klopp’s side this time around.

There’s no doubt that we can improve ahead of the visit of Bournemouth to Anfield on Saturday but there were plenty of promising aspects from our performance in the capital.

  1. Am a Liverpool fan am beginning to get sick and tired of this club transfer policy, it’s very obvious that we need a defensive midfielder before the end of last season, the same mistake we did last season when we brought in Arthur melo is what we are doing again, when you fail to plan, you plan to fail

    1. Thank you, Hugo, for your comments. I am sure there are many Liverpool fans like yourself who are feeling let down. Our team must actually be challenging for the title and more, instead of just fighting for a place among the top four. This whole business is ridiculous. I myself have been a Pool fan since 1956. I was 14 then. How old does that make me?

  2. I know that Caecedo was not interested in coming to Anfield. Instead of chasing him for so long, the owners should have wrapped up a deal for Lavia much earlier. And they could have bought him for less than £55 million. But, as they did last year, they ket dithering. Jurgen must feel frustrated at being let down. If they don’t want to lose such a good manager who has achieved so much for us, the owners must get their transfer policy on track. We need a good holding midfielder. Get the player now.
