      Think he's vastly underrated but those outside LFC and maybe the French fans.

      If he was playing for City the media would be creaming themselves over him at every given opportunity.

      To think that Ruben Dias somehow once got player of the year in a season where, to name just one alternative, Harry Kane led the league in both goals and assists, is hilarious.

      France would have won the World Cup if they played him instead of Upemacno

      His fitness will be key the 2nd half of the season. He's clearly VVd best partner, and that's saying something, as every CB has played very well this season

      Watching some bits of the game again, and the way he covers for Trent is brilliant time and time again. He's perfectly suited for doing this, particularly when TAA starts to venture into midfield - he's quick and aggressive enough to make up for the space left behind.

      I thought that was his best performance for us by a country mile , stepped up to the plate in Virgil’s absence, covered back for Trent , when needed an excellent performance by the man .

      Konate at his best is one of the best centre backs in the world - we saw that yesterday.

      Just needs to work on his consistency a bit as he’s still prone to a few errors.

      Hope he irons that out because he has all the attributes to be one of the very best.

      Great to see him backing up last night. Obviously needs to be managed but I was both surprised and happy to see him in the lineup last night.

      Started in the 2-2 last season against Arsenal and seems to be the go to plan with dealing with Martinelli, was the same in the 1-1 draw at Anfield also.

      I was at that 2-2 game and Konaté was immense then, made a couple of really strong (but fair) tackles from what I recall.

      Still only 22, he's developing into the best CB in the world.

      Is he really still only 22? I didn't realise that. He's boss.

      Sorry mate. You are right, 24 is young for a CB and he is already among the best in the world.

      He's so damn good....BUT he's not touching Virgil just yet, learning from the best though so only time will tell.

      At one point in the first half it felt like Konate V Arsenal. He literally battered Martinelli and Jesus into submission. His geeing up the defence towards the end of the of the FA Cup at the Emirates was marvellous too.
