Didn’t know before today if he was maybe slightly overhyped? Well that’s that idea fucked off.

Best centre half I’ve ever seen come to the Lane I think and thoroughly deserves the awards and plaudits he gets. What a sublime performance. Won absolutely everything, no one got past him, no one came close in truth. I’ve not seen a centre half so aerially dominant in a long time.

And I’ll tell you what, McBurnie gave him one hell of a game. He’s earned his money this week and been made to work hard for that clean sheet. Robinson gave him a worry as well. Proud as punch.

He is everywhere. You think you have played a great ball into the box and out of no where he dangles a leg at it to clear the ball.
Matip isn’t bad, the full backs are pretty good defensively but no doubt he is the reason they are European champions and the best runner up the Prem has ever seen.
Faultless.

He's probably the premier league's best ever center half. He is fantastic.

He's got the lot. I don't think he has a single flaw in his game.

I though their best players were their back 4. Robertson and Alexander-Arnold are quality, Matip steps out of defence very well

Matip looked like their weak link (if Liverpool have a weak link these days). I think if we had seen Mousset running at him from the start of the match he would have been forced into an error or two.

He just covers so much of the pitch, both in terms of stature and positioning, VVD makes Harry Maguire look like Claude Davies.

Honestly, Liverpool could play with just him in defence and 6 midfielders and they'd probably be alright if people tracked back occasionally.
