      Thiaaaaaaaaagooooo, Thiaaaaaaaaagoooooooo!

      This man is the personification of why I watch football. Every time the ball is at his feet I watch like a kid looks at his first crush ever. Everything he does is beautiful, inch perfect, the right thing to do, with the right timing. It's like watching a super skilled artist painting, you don't know what the next stroke will be but every time he executes himself the reaction is ''WOW, I didn't even know this could be done by a human''.

      Completely took the piss out of them in that first half - brilliant stuff from him. His confidence is through the roof now. The whole team is buzzing in fact - feels like Jürgen's job right now is to stop them getting too carried away. Which is a pretty nice problem for him to have. We are looking so strong for the run in - piling the pressure on City with performances like last night. Don't care what they say - they will be feeling it.

      His range of passing last night was phenomenal, coupled to that his work rate and desire to win balls , to think Pogba cost over treble what this lad did is absolute bonkers and just shows how utterly mad and bizarre football is .

      Absolutely phenomenal player and it shows with the stats of us playing with and without him.

      Would've been a bargain at £50 million.

      He's obviously an amazing player and one that I can never take my eyes off ( best technically since Suarez ) but fitness is the problem. If we can have him for the big games, and the games where the opposition get everyone behind the ball, then we've a good chance. Wish we'd got him a few years ago, or I wish I could magically transport his body back to his 25 year old self!

      He completed 105 of his 110 passes. He was perfect -- 15-for-15 -- on passes of more than 30 yards. Overall, his passes covered more than 2,000 yards of field space. He led Liverpool in passes into the final third, passes into the penalty area, and chances created for his teammates. And when he wasn't passing the ball, he was moving it himself, or moving for it, or getting it back. He carried the ball 381 yards, almost 100 yards further than any other Liverpool player. He received more passes (102) than any other Liverpool player. He pressured the ball more often than any of his teammates, and he won more tackles, too.

      Beautiful player to watch, some of his passing is literally inch perfect, reminds me a bit of Alonso to Gerrard type player, he was floating on cloud 9 against the mancs and had them totally bamboozled with his skills and passing, must be wonderful to play with that kind of quality in your team - A Rolls Royce of a player.

      Thanks for the vids ruthcity and Billo, when I see he's starting a game I look forward to it even more, such a talented player with his ball skills and tenacious too, made up he plays for us.

      Alonso wasnt bad was he but he is a perfect fit for our team now you have to take your hat of to our recruitment team and Jürgen they get far more right than most clubs although Ferdinand said he was supposed to go to UTD before us. Really looking forward to seeing him in our remaining games we have a complete midfield now to tackle any team or any game.

      Xabi was class but Thiago is another level again.

      Even better on the ball, more technically gifted and more mobile as well.

      Not only the obvious bright technique to execute passing to a very high level but I also love the way he tackles and steals the ball. 99% of the time he does it without any fouls.

      The only thing that he never had was pace but he's so intelligent that he plays around it.

      Thought he was excellent and lasted the full 120 mins and scored his pen.

      Klopp mentioned in his post match that Thiago said Klopp taught him running.

      He was everywhere and still at 100 mins was playing some cute balls with superb control.

      No coincidence we win games with this man playing.

      Additionally - his social media just screams how much he is loving the club, fans and city. He has proper immersed himself into the culture with his family. I truly believe our recruitment team only look for players who have this type of mentality.
