It was a game at that was at times beautiful, but marred by brutal tackles and ludicrous VAR decisions. It was a Merseyside derby. Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara, both back from covid quarantines, were absolutely scintillating. The midfield duo popped up all over the field, making their presence felt, and Henderson absolutely should have been awarded the game winner after a move started with a slick ball from Thiago. Sadio Mané scored the early goal to give Liverpool the lead, and was a menace down the left all game long. Mohamed Salah got in great shooting positions all game long, and finally got his goal with a wonderful volley.
