It should not have taken a Thiago Alcântara goal to remind the footballing world what a player he is.

The lavish praise for the Liverpool man is well-deserved, but there is a sense that it is akin to congratulating Pablo Picasso on a top-notch painting and decorating job.

Klopp knows that, Liverpool know that, and Southampton may well be about to find out — hopefully, it is the start of a long and successful period.

The strike against Porto was a thing of beauty, skimming like a stone into the bottom corner, and yet it was by no means ‘vintage’: the Spaniard only scored eight Champions League goals in seven seasons at Bayern Munich.

If the goal against Porto announced the start of a new period for Thiago at Liverpool, Southampton may well be the coronation.

Such an obvious moment of quality should hopefully give Thiago’s Liverpool career a lift, but he already had everything he needed to succeed at Anfield.

In many ways, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side play more like Champions League than Premier League opposition.
