DDG Is Back
With a new 4-year contract signed, this has been the been the best outcome since his RM saga began. Abit dodgy early on maybe due to rustiness but he made two terrific saves to show he's back. So happy to see him back.
Blind And Smalling Make A Great Defensive Duo
Say what you want about Blind but he sure has proved a lot of doubters wrong. His positional play was exceptional and largely kept Benteke in check all game. The duo have only conceded four goals in the last seven games. Blind even managed to pop up with a goal.
Shaw And Darmian Are The Future
Both have been revelations this season. A picture on consistency and work ethic. Both are proving to be astute buys. Shaw has done a great job working his way back to fitness after last season's failure to shine.
Schweinsteigger is definitely not the player he was ten years ago, but he shows that experience can take him a very long way. Carrick is still good as gold while Schneiderlin is the future. Together, a combination of 2/3 at any one time basically bossed a Liverpool team playing five in midfield.
Who Is Anthony Martial?
The real deal, that's who! Just when Benteke scored that unstoppable goal and brought tension back into our house, Martial picks up the ball from Young in the left of the final third, dribbled past two defenders and calmly slots home to make it 3-1. What a way to announce your arrival.
