Thiago Scores First Liverpool Goal in Vital Win Over Saints

Thiago scored his first goal for Liverpool as they kept their top-four hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Southampton at Anfield. Both sides had clear chances in an open first half, but Liverpool got the opener as Sadio Mane rose above Kyle Walker-Peters to convert Mohamed Salah's cross from six yards (31), the first time the duo had combined for a Premier League goal this season. Alisson was on hand to deny Saints on several occasions in both halves, while also nearly handing them a leveller on a plate with a poor pass out in the second, gratefully gathering Che Adams' weak shot, before summer signing Thiago. struck with a fine low effort from outside the box into the bottom right corner (90). The weekend had offered mixed results in Liverpool's quest for the top four, with Leic...

Arsene Wenger Reveals Klopp’s Problem With Thiago at Liverpool

  Former Arsenal head coach, Arsene Wenger, has revealed the “problem” Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has with midfielder, Thiago, at Anfield. Liverpool signed Thiago from Bayern Munich last summer for £20million. Thiago, who is one of the best midfielders in Europe, was expected to shine at Anfield but the 29-year-old has endured an underwhelming first season in the English Premier League so far. Wenger believes Liverpool are not aggressive in the midfield like before after Klopp added Thiago, a technical player in his squad. “Thiago, for me, shows the typical problem of a manager,” Wenger told beIN Sports on Tuesday night as Liverpool defeated RB Leipzig 2-0 in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie in Hungary. “Liverpool were very hungry and aggressi...

Thiago is changing Liverpool to make them ‘WORSE’ – Didi Hamann

  Thiago Alcantara is making Liverpool worse because he is everything that Jurgen Klopp's champions are not, claims former star Didi Hamann. Thiago arrived to huge fanfare when he completed his move from Bayern Munich in September, but has found his game time heavily restricted by injury so far. The Spaniard returned to action over the Christmas period, and it has coincided with Liverpool going three games without a goal and seeing their title defence fizzle out. Hamann, who was at Anfield from 1999 until 2006, believes that the 29-year-old, though a fine player, does not suit Klopp's set up and is slowing them down. He tweeted: 'Liverpool had a lot of possession for quite some time now and always found a way to break up defences. 'The dynamics of the team will chang...

Can Thiago’s return to Liverpool’s midfield reignite the front three?

If there’s been any positive surrounding Liverpool’s recent Premier League form, it’s been the return of Thiago Alcantara to first-team action. The Spanish international was heralded as the missing piece of the jigsaw for Jurgen Klopp’s side when he signed from Bayern Munich in the summer – a player with ability to unlock stubborn defences, and give Liverpool more of an edge when taking on teams that defend deep. In his early performances for the Reds, you could already see the difference Thiago could make, but an injury suffered in the Merseyside Derby as a result of a horror challenge from Everton’s Richarlison left Thiago out of action for almost three months, and it’s only recently that he has regained full fitness and made his presence felt in Liverpool’s starting eleven once m...

Thiago Alcantara believes Pep Guardiola completely changed the way the game is seen in Germany during his time in charge of Bayern Munich. Spain international Thiago considered the Bundesliga to be primarily focused on power and strength before Guardiola arrived in 2013. However, following Guardiola’s three years in charge of the Bavarian giants, the former Barcelona midfielder now feels possession and domination of the game are of greater importance. “Pep brought greater emphasis on putting value on possession and controlling the game,” Thiago told Marca. “The Bundesliga has always been a competition of strength, power and goals. “He changed the concept of German football in general and they found a harmony that saw them go on to become world champions.” Guardiola guided...
