Liverpool fans react to Youri Tielemans display in Leicester win
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to laud Youri Tielemans after his performance for Leicester City in their superb victory over Manchester United on Saturday.
The Foxes scored twice late on to secure the three points at the King Power Stadium. But one of the goals of the game came on the half-hour mark as Tielemans was given the ball on the edge of the box.
Leicester had won possession back as Harry Maguire dallied on the ball. Kelechi Iheanacho played the ball to the Belgian.
And, seemingly nonchalantly, Tielemans curled the ball over David de Gea and into the inside of the net at the far post. It was an outrageous finish from the 24-year-old.
But it was also an outstanding performance. He produced three key passes and completed three successful dribbles, according to Whoscored.
And it certainly caught the attention of plenty of Liverpool fans on social media.
As noted in The Athletic recently, the £32 million midfielder is on Jurgen Klopp’s radar. The Liverpool boss is very much an admirer of the Leicester star.
And it seems that several supporters would be delighted to see Tielemans end up on Merseyside at some stage in the coming months.

Of course, he will not come cheap. But it does appear that the FA Cup winner is proving to be one of the league’s standout performers in the middle of the park.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Liverpool fans were saying about Tielemans after his goal and stunning display for Leicester…
This man will be our new Gini!

An another note from today, would still be looking at Tielemans as a midfield option, just a class player.
