    Brilliant today

    Wonderful assist, brilliant, even down to the game management that led to his substitution..

    I was thinking, given his change of role under Klopp to DM have we actually missed his creativity part of his game.. ??  He has been fantastic since he has been moved further forward .

    Thinking back to 2014.. he was key, to such a point I think his sending off against city was pivotal to us losing that title .

    He is a box to box midfielder by trade, engine in midfield..  2014 showed that..

    Recently it's been like rolling back the years and then some..

    Pleased for him.. really am.. I really think he is important on his current form, pivotal in fact for this quest for number 19..

    Wow. Another stunning display of power, legs and quality.

    Feels like a new signing.

    Credit to him.

    Yeah, he's playing well. He's doing well in possession too, which is important, and the freedom he has means he can put his greatest asset to better use; few players can eat up yards and get about the pitch as well as him. He's a machine.

    Yup, he's leading the line brilliantly.
    He's been great since he moved into this position ... and he owes us for that red card ... a few more of these performance, and his status at the club will likely change forever

    100% - I've never rated him as a number 6 as you all know.

    He was brilliant again today!
    The Fabinho signing is a double win for us - we've got a great DM and he frees Hendo to play in his real position.

    Like you, I was thinking of his sending off in 2014 and how it cost us.

    Hope his injury is not serious.

    I don't think it's a simple as the press would have us believe, in that he's played there for England & asked Klopp to play further up & he's let him, I think part of the reason he hasn't played there is down to his foot/heel problem, whether he could do this role for a full season, I doubt it, but he's moving so much quicker now which suggests that injury/condition is at least managed much better.

    Klopp said he played him in DM because we didn't have enough options, and Hendo also said the same, and that he also wanted to play further up the pitch and in a less restrictive role.

    I'm not sure it's anything to do with his injury.

    A poke in the eye at those cunts in 2014..

    Love him...

    I don't know. I was thinking the same regarding Hendo and his heel condition.

    I am not sure whether he could put in three 90minute performances like that in a week. But I guess, playing the number 6 role (which requires less running), has allowed him to look fresh and aggressive, in a moment we needed that. Gini has looked knackered. We've managed to rest him somewhat over the last 2 games.

    The fact that Keita and Fabinho have also stepped up is a huge bonus too.

    It was a big statement today from Klopp, trusting Naby in a game of this magnitude and up against Kante. I think he actually won the battle between the pair of them.

    He's doing great in CM. In good form, with more confidence. Probably third best performer today. Nothing bad to say about him.

    It was a very brave call, I was convinced he'd go with Milner instead.

    Worked too, cos I think his close control & ability to create space with the ball from deep into the final third was very important in the first half.

    Reckon he's learnt from being deeper and knows when to advance and when not to go push, which could make him better in the long run
