Manquillo is already comfortable in the first team
Javier Manquillo looked comfortable and confident on the right side of Liverpool’s defence, as if he hadn’t just arrived on a two-year loan spell from Spain, but instead is well accustomed to the rigours of Premier League football.
If the game against Southampton is anything to go by – and of course, the sporadic appearances for Atletico Madrid – Manquillo will prove to be a very good signing for Liverpool. In contrast, Glen Johnson once again left a lot to be desired at left-back. The England international, once Alberto Moreno is integrated into the side, will struggle to displace Manquillo in his natural position of right-back.
