Thiago Alcantara with hair in things Liverpool fans never knew they needed

All seems well at Liverpool FC. Aside from potentially teetering towards yet another injury crisis, Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League win over Atletico Madrid maintained the positive atmosphere surrounding the club, as they secured qualification for the next stage of the competition.

While there were several takeaways from the game – most notably the home support’s reception of Luis Suarez – the fanbase found an unlikely figure in Thiago Alcantara, whose striking appearance added to the charged atmosphere on the night.
