    That was a big part of the problem tonight as it was at the end of last season, which is why I was so made up we signed Thaigo, the press and counter press were absolute shite, but Villa pressed us successfully and broke on us so many times because we had no midfielder in the line up capable of playing those balls that destroy attempted opposition presses and Jurgen opted not to change either of those things with his half time or other subs for whatever reason only he knows

    I know its early days but he does look a better option technically than Origi. Time will tell if he scores enough goals.

    Here for 7 days , so yeah he should already be at Mané's level.
    But for Mané being out he would be serving 3 months on the bench learning the liverpool and klopp way.

    Lolz - he'll play loads this season imo - early days but he looks like the only front 3 option who ticks the boxes.

    3 goals in his first 3 Home games, first to do that since Garcia.

    Also love that he doesn't look unlike Nando facially, evokes a sense of nostalgia for me

    Sincerely though, great finisher - and just on the mention of Nando, Torres was 23 when he joined us and Jota is joining a more settled side/club - we only got 3 and a half years of Torres before he moved on, but surely hardly anyone could lure Jota away from us and he already looks very promising given our set-up.

    Hard not to get a LITTLE excited. Hope he can achieve his full potential with us and stay a long time.

    A good start to his Anfield career. I'll take it.
