Thiago Friday. Jota Saturday. Win at Chelsea on Sunday. What a few days it was to be a Liverpool fan. Little wonder, then, Josh Williams and David Hughes have got a lot to get stuck into in the latest episode of Analysing Anfield. They start with the signing of Thiago Alcantara, the Bayern Munich midfielder with the ‘unique skill-set’ who cannot only spot openings other players can’t, but has the technique to execute them. Basically, they believe the Spanish international’s arrival means Liverpool will now have the answer to most questions posed to them by opponents, or in their own words, ‘two Plan As’. But what about Wolves winger Diogo Jota, who swiftly followed Thiago through the Anfield doors? Is the Portuguese, who was previously identified as a transfer target by Dave and Josh in April, a back-up option to the front three? Or, on closer inspection of the data, is he actually a heir to Sadio Mane’s throne? The guys answer those questions before reviewing the mightily impressive 2-0 victory at Chelsea, focusing particularly on Thiago’s eye-catching cameo, and previewing Monday’s clash with an Arsenal team who have had Liverpool’s numbers in recent times.
