The day began with Liverpool all but having their own destiny in their hands, and they did not disappoint. Sadio Mane scored a brace and was sensational all game. Thiago Alcantara ran the game from midfield, winning balls left and right and showing his world-class passing. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson generated chance after chance on the wing, with both doing their defensive duties as well. Alisson made a couple of big saves early, and showed some fancy footwork with the ball at his feet under pressure. And Gini — this is more of an emotional addition for me. It was likely his last game for Liverpool, and he thankfully got his standing ovation from the Kop.
