      Definitely like the look of Chirivella. The match thread was loaded with "he needs to bulk up!" posts. He's 18 years old. You can't seriously be shocked he's got the body of a teenager, right? He's got 3 years of growth left.

      I thought he looked boss!  I'll take a composed distributor over an engine or enforcer type CM any day!!

      Agree with the above posters.
      Would certainly play him in some prem games.
      Looked very impressive and assured.

      Thought Pedro did well last night. 

      To come in, in such a pivotal role, at 18, on his senior debut start, against a team sitting 6th in the PL, away from home and be so calm and composed was wonderful to see. 

      Of course there were mistakes and naturally he tired late on in the game but he's 18!!

      To see him without the ball he's nearly always in space, he's constantly looking all around, knows where his team mates are and the opposition, while demanding the ball to feet, he knows what he's going to do with it before it arrives.

      Well played young man  :clap:

      He complimented the 2 centre backs very well too as they looked to always play out from the back before anything else. It's hard to do with Can and Henderson at times as they go wandering elsewhere but Chirivella was always there and available.

      He always makes himself available mate and his link up play with Tex and Cou, once everyone settled was excellent and he missed both of them once they want off as it kind of neutralised his quick one touch passing.

      He's nowhere near ready to be playing regularly but once again all the lads showed they can be relied upon when needed.

      Great post, but I wanted to isolate this bit.  It's so refreshing to see a player of ours with such great positional awareness!!  Most of the time our CM's gravitate towards the ball.  The way Pedro would slow down and find pockets of space to create passing lanes was reminiscent of old Xabi :)

      Cheers mate. 

      I think it's his intelligence that sets him apart, it's something that's been missing out of the squad in recent months.  The way he receives the ball, how he knows where the space is all around him, how he knows he can let the ball run before turning and releasing it.

      As for the Xabi ness, he draws similar fouls to him, he somehow manages to come out of a melee of 2 or 3 players with the ball if they don't foul him, he's not afraid to try something even if it fails and he's never flustered.

      What I liked about this lad is that he never tried to grab the headlines, it was just a composed, intelligent display and the comparisons with Xabi Alonso are not as ridiculous as some might think.  We looked controlled and always had a positive passing option thanks to his distribution and off-ball movement.  No headless chicken act as we've been seeing from Can and some of the more senior guys at times.

      Have to say, Reddebs, you chief scout, you, I'm really excited about these young Reds and not one of them would be out of place in the first team against Villa.

      New contract

      The 18-year-old is enjoying a breakthrough season at first-team level with the Reds, making a senior debut as a substitute against Bordeaux in September.

      Chirivella, who joined the club’s Academy from Valencia in the summer of 2013, has made four appearances in total – including a maiden start at West Ham United in the FA Cup.

      After inking the deal at the training ground, he told Liverpoolfc.com: “It feels really good. I have worked really hard in the last year. I’m very proud to sign a new contract with one of the best teams in Europe.

      “When Liverpool wanted me to sign here, I had no doubt about it. But when I came here, I needed to perform really well because the club trusted me and I had to give them a reason why.

      “With pressure and [being] away from family, there are a lot of things that make it difficult, but now I’m pleased to be doing really well here.”

      Happy he has signed, but next season, he needs to either go on loan or play a good few games for us to really progress.

      Him , Rossiter, Canos, Ojo, Kent and Brannagan are the players I'm most excited about.

      Lovely stuff, looks a good prospect, surprised he hasn't featured a little more this season to be honest.

      Totally forgot about Chirivella tbh, but nice video that show cases his distribution from deep and composure. It actually reminds me of Xavi, in terms of how he shifts the ball.

      Again, I forgot about Chirivella, but it looks like he has been a regular (33 games) for Willem II who are 13th in the league. Does anyone actually know how he has been playing and how he has been used? I was very impressed with him in pre-season and was gutted we loaned him in the summer.

      Would say playing 33 games,means he played well,no? Helped kept the team up,we'll see what's up when pre season comes around.He could easily get a gig in la liga,if he doesn't think there's first team chances here.
