Dominik Szoboszlai picked up where he left off in Austria, delivering a composed outing in the first-half of action at Anfield.
The Hungarian finished the first 45 with a pass accuracy of 98% and was heavily involved elsewhere on the pitch, as demonstrated by James Pearce’s tweet on the matter online.

The former RB Leipzig joined the Reds this summer in a £60m deal, with Jurgen Klopp’s men taking advantage of a timely release clause.
Despite flattering to deceive during pre-season, the 22-year-old has proven to be worth absolutely every penny since the start of the campaign.
Alongside Premier League purchase Alexis Mac Allister, the pair have transformed a dreary, lifeless Liverpool midfield back into the engine that powered us through to cup final after cup final.
Add technical brilliance in abundance and you’ve got yourself a midfield combination that could take a team with frightening potential anywhere over the next five years or so.
