Indeed, the pair took to Twitter to heap praise on the 28-year-old for his display against the Reds.
But the Belgian has recently been linked with a Tottenham exit by Tuttosport.
As such, there was pressure on Dembele to prove his worth against Liverpool. Judging by the reaction of onlookers, however, the midfielder has done just that.
Newcastle's Aarons, for one, feels the playmaker is underrated...
Dembele deserves more recognition baller!— Rolando Aarons (@R_Aarons16) October 17, 2015
As well as the Newcastle winger, though, BBC pundit Roberts tweeted to similar effect. He feels the Tottenham midfielder plays good football:
If you enjoy watching good football..you must be a Dembele fan..— Jason Roberts (@JasonRoberts30) October 17, 2015
"This is the Mousa Dembele I know and love. He hasn't produced this form often enough in a Tottenham shirt but he's been far and away their best player today."
It looks like Dembele has taken his chance, then, but will it be enough wow Mauricio Pochettino into selecting him once all of his first-choice midfielders are back and available for selection?
Eric Dier, Ryan Mason, Dele Alli and Nabil Bentaleb will be providing the competition.
