Thiago Alcantara has taken to Instagram to react to Liverpool’s win this evening.
The Reds shrugged off a sloppy defensive display in their 4-3 victory over Leeds United last weekend to professionally dispatch Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tonight.
A double from Sadio Mane in the second half was enough for Liverpool – who faced 10 men for more than half the game – to return to Merseyside with all three points.
But the real talking point was Thiago’s debut.
Jurgen Klopp introduced the 29-year-old at half-time following an injury to Jordan Henderson and fans of the Anfield club were left drooling over their new signing’s performance.
Thiago only joined Liverpool on Friday and if this was a taste of things to come, it’s a warning for the Premier League.
Here’s how the Spain international reacted to the win on Instagram:
Thiago also broke a Premier League record on his bow.
The former Barcelona star completed 75 successful passes, which is the highest number that any player has managed in 45 minutes of top-flight English football since records began during the 2003-04 campaign.
