It’s no secret Thiago Alcantara hasn’t got off to a flying start at Liverpool – but it’s not really his fault.

When playing with a natural anchor, Thiago is let loose and a constant pest to opposition players.

A compilation created by CF Comps highlights some of the midfield maestro’s finest moments this season, and teases what’s to come from Liverpool’s No.6 in 2021/22, with a fully-fit squad behind him.
