Georginio Wijnaldum offered hope he could fill one of the forward spots for Liverpool with an impressive friendly performance.
The Dutchman scored in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Sporting, along with Divock Origi.
Wijnaldum latched onto an excellent pass from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score for the Reds.
Liverpool's forward line is currently depleted due to international exploits of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
And it's easy to forget that Wijnaldum made his name in an attacking role.
Jurgen Klopp's recent conversion of Wijnaldum to a more deep lying midfielder has meant the Dutchman has not been needed to showcase his attacking talents as regularly.
At least as a temporary solution, Wijnaldum's versatility could be key, and save the Reds splashing out in the transfer market.
Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to his performance...
