“I gave two assists!” – Thiago jokes that he should have won MOTM

Thiago Alcantara nearly passed a ball which gave Arsenal a chance to go ahead in the game, minutes before assisting in Liverpool’s opener.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, our No.6 was asked how nervous he felt when his pass to Alisson Becker was intercepted by Alexandre Lacazette.

The 30-year-old said: “That’s why I don’t understand why Robbo becomes the man of the match, I gave two assists and he only one – just kidding!”.

It’s great that the Spain international can be in such good spirits, especially after such a massive game and what could have been a huge moment without our goalkeeper.

All players make mistakes and sometimes they get punished, the former Bayern Munich player is experienced enough to put that behind him and stay focused on the rest of the game.

There are now nine league games to go and if we win them all, we win the Premier League…
