Thiago shone on his Liverpool debut day

The Spanish midfielder set a record for the number of successful passes in 45 minutes in the Premier League against Chelsea on September 20.

Liverpool’s £ 20million rookie made his new team debut in a 2-0 win over Chelsea when he entered the second half. Coach Juergen Klopp gave him the chance after captain Jordan Henderson left the field due to a possible thigh injury.

Thiago Alcantara did not take long to prove his influence in the midfield of the visitors. He delivered 75 successful passes, more than any other Chelsea player, even those who played the full 90 minutes. Thiago is impressed with his ability to pass the ball and regulate the game against Chelsea.

According to Opta, these are the most successful passes per player played for up to 45 minutes in the Premier League, since the tournament used statistics in the 2003/04 season. This performance was enough for Liverpool fans to forget about a penalty in the penalty area with Thiago’s Timo Werner, resulting in an 11-meter kick that Jorginho later failed to kick.

Andreas Christensen’s red card in the 45th minute was a turning point that led teachers and teachers Frank Lampard to lose the game. In the second half, Sadio Mane made a double in less than 5 minutes to help Liverpool win 3 points away.

In the 75th minute, Jorginho had a chance to shorten the difference on the 11-meter mark, but could not beat Alisson Becker despite performing his forte shooting technique.

Chelsea still keeps its great performance. Previously, Chelsea also won Brighton 3-1 in the first round of the Premier League.

Thiago cried while leaving Bayern Munich

The Spaniard cried and hugged Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to thank him for allowing him to move to Liverpool.

In the past season, the Spanish midfielder was the backbone of the Allianz Arena team. He played 40 matches in all competitions, played nearly 3,000 minutes, scored 3 goals, and made 2 assists. Thiago is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Europe currently.

After winning the Champions League, the former Barca player left Bayern to move to Liverpool for a fee of 30 million euros. He won a total of 17 titles after 7 years of playing for Germany, including 7 Bundesliga titles, 1 Champions League, and 1 European Super Cup.

MU is about to lose another 9 million pounds for Bruno Fernandes

The contract of the Portuguese midfielder has many terms that make the United have to spend more money. According to A Bola, Man United will have to pay an additional £ 4.5 million for Sporting Lisbon after Bruno Fernandes has reached the 20-goal mark.

Bruno Fernandes is an important factor in the MU team

MU will also have to pay an additional £ 4.5 million for Sporting if they win tickets to the Champions League next season. Even, the total transfer fee of Bruno can be up to 67 million if he won the Premier League championship and the Golden Ball title in the MU shirt.

After 36 rounds in the Premier League 2019/20, MU is ranked 5th with 62 points, equal to Leicester but played less than 1 match. Therefore, if you win the reception of West Ham, the coach and coach Ole Solskjaer will occupy the 4th position in the rankings.

Bruno moved to United from Sporting in January 2020 with a £ 42 million contract. In Old Trafford’s jersey, he scored 9 goals and 8 assists after 18 appearances in all competitions.

After a long time of sublimation, MU returned to the ground when drawing Southampton with the harsh reality. It is they were not good enough to enter the top 4 and win tickets to the Champions League.

With 11 unbeaten matches including 7 victories, MU is the team with the best performance in the Premier League since the beginning of February. But that is not enough to help “Reds” into the top 4 in the Premier League race.

That is a big paradox for the Old Trafford team. Performance on the field and the newspaper turned “Red Devils” into the world’s strongest club, but in fact, they will have to play in the Europa League next season if they maintain their current position.

The key to the success of MU’s last time was Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder arrived and immediately made a difference with his superior expertise and leadership.

He set a number of records, surpassing even the best legends in history such as Cantona, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Ronaldo, and won the title of “Player of the Month” of the Premier League for 2 consecutive months. Before and after Fernandes, MU are two completely different teams.

The paradox lies here. Because of MU’s impression of having Fernandes too big, the fans (or the MU players themselves) seem to forget how “the Red Devils” had the first half of the season disappointed.
