Liverpool fans rave about Thiago Alcantara after 2-0 win over Crystal Palace
Liverpool secured Champions League football yesterday after a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield. Sadio Mane bagged both goals for the Reds, although it was Thiago Alcantara who caught the eye.
The Spanish midfielder has taken some time to get up to speed completely during 2020/21 but in the final weeks of the campaign, he’s really highlighted his class.
Thiago played 30 times for Liverpool during his maiden season at the club and it’s fair to say there is more to come from the 30-year-old star.
Liverpool produced a remarkable comeback to secure Champions League football. Just a month ago their chances looked slim but eight wins from the final 11 games have seen them over the line.
It’s perhaps no coincidence that Liverpool’s resurgence has coincided with some strong form by summer signing Thiago.
After yesterday’s game, supporters took to Twitter to rave about the midfielder who produced an eye-catching display against the Eagles.
Here is what the fan base had to say about the man with 41 caps for his country.
Some really great performances at Anfield yesterday. Wijnaldum, Phillips, Williams and Firmino all stood out but Thiago was on another level for me. His movement off the ball, passing range and the way he shifts Liverpool’s play from side to side is unbelievable.

Looks very tasty. Has taken a while to adapt to pace of PL and was initially played out of position. Bodes well for 21/22.
