Liverpool fans loved Wijnaldum’s performance against Man City

Liverpool produced a sparkling attacking display to defeat Manchester City on Sunday, winning 4-3 at Anfield in the English Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side became the first side to defeat City in the league this season, sending Pep Guardiola’s men home with nothing to show for an epic battle.

The Reds’ goal heroes on the day were Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, but it was another player who picked up the plaudits of fans after the match.

Georginio Wijnaldum has faced criticism at times this season but has become integral to Klopp’s midfield and produced a battling performance to keep City’s key central talents quiet for the large spells of the 90 minutes.

Fans were delighted with his work rate, ball winning skills and composure, believing the 27-year-old is turning a corner in his Liverpool career.

They took to Twitter to share their thoughts and enthusiastically discuss his performance
