Liverpool’s race for the top four look seems to be back on track after brushing away defending champions Leicester City 4-1 at Anfield on Match Day 4.
Playing their first home game of the season, the atmosphere was raucous, owing to the new expansion of the main stand. Add to that the stellar performances from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, which put Leicester out of the match for pretty much the entirety of the game.
The spotlight is always on the scorers; but it must be seen that the plaudits for the win must also go towards new boy Gini Wijnaldum. The Dutchman was a dominant force in midfield, attacking spaces and pressing relentlessly, and eventually bagged a great assist in Adam Lallana’s goal.
The goal was only possible due to his intelligent run into the space created by Daniel Sturridge, to slot in between the centre-backs. He received the ball from Sturridge, drew in a couple of defenders in the box, before laying it to Lallana, who emphatically thumped it home.
