Thiago proves doubters wrong
Thiago Alcantara has become a key figure for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side – as he continues to prove his doubters wrong.
Doubts arose whether his composed style on the ball suited the Reds’ rock ‘n’ roll style of play, but the Spaniard was the standout player in the 4-0 thrashing Manchester United last week and has been very impressive for his team this season. While his passing and vision were obvious to everyone, his other stats show just how important he has become to his team.
Thiago completed 96 percent of his passes, won 67 percent of his tackles and completed all of his dribbles to dispel all those initial doubts.
Klopp claims Everton
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained exactly why he doesn’t want Everton to be relegated this season.
The Reds’ bitter city rivals have struggled this season and are just a point above the Premier League’s relegation zones despite having a game to go Burnley. And while the historic rivalry between the two sides runs deep, Klopp wants their “intense” derbies to be a regular fixture on the calendar.
Micah Richards has snubbed Mohamed Salah as his pick for PFA Player of the Season – as he thinks Sadio Mane deserves the award instead.
The pundit believes Salah has undoubtedly been impressive for his team over the course of the season, but Mane shadows it for the ‘when you look at the bigger picture’ award. Mane has scored 14 goals this season in the Premier League compared to Salah’s 22 goals.
But Richards thinks Mane is the perfect team-mate for Salah – and deserves PFA Player of the Season.
