Loads of Liverpool fans have been discussing their midfield options ahead of the trip to Arsenal, and they’re full of praise for the ever-improving Georginio Wijnaldum.
When Liverpool signed Naby Keita and Fabinho this summer, you’d be hard pushed to find a fan who would have picked Wijnaldum to be the most consistent player in the Reds’ midfield.
The Dutchman has divided opinion throughout this Liverpool career, as he tends to pop up with a huge performance here and there before going missing for the next two or three games.
Fans weren’t sure when Klopp brought him in from Newcastle, especially as the deal came out of nowhere with virtually no preceding rumours or links.
He has well and truly found his feet in Klopp’s side this season though, performing a variety of roles with ruthless efficiency.
The 27 year-old filled in as a defensive midfielder when Jordan Henderson was out earlier inn the season, and has proved just as effective in the box-to-box role since Fabinho took over the holding spot.
He proved during the recent international break that he can get forward and score goals if given the opportunity, and fans are heaping praise on him ahead of the trip to Arsenal.

The way he uses his body to protect the ball is as good as you will see. So strong, composed and clever.

I wasn’t his biggest fan in the past but he’s been brilliant this season, maybe even our player of the season so far.
