    Many would say Van Dijk.
    The rest would say Salah.
    James Milner says Allison.
    There is no way that Wijnaldum has been "comfortably" their best player.

    Again it’s opinions...
    Salah has played well in about 10 games
    Van dijk has been very good but his midfield has helped and one of the people that has done that is Wilnaldum. He has shielded then brilliantly
    Did he play tonight as by all accounts pool were lucky

    He wasn’t even on the bench tonight. Guess he has picked up a knock.

    I'd say that shows Winks has been a good bit better.

    Henderson's like Dier in the way that Rasiak is like Kane.

    Translation:

    Speak to anyone using received wisdom and they'll tell you the same thing as everyone else relying on received wisdom.

    Walks in .. looks for Winks thread … sees nothing but cult of victims mutterings … leaves

    p.s. was going to comment that Winks game has picked up in last couple of games, my opinion he has been far off his best this season in general, but some signs of it returning.

    I think he played a very cautious game when he came back from his injury and seemed less keen to take risks. Poch said as much.
    But as he has played more he has grown in confidence and we are now seeing more of the pre-injury Winks, with improvements. Plus from comments after the Fulham game it sounds as though he is really being encouraged in training to get more involved in attacking play.
    I am looking forward to watching him progress.

    Personally Id say Firmino, who I think is excellent and most underated. For me their attack falls apart without him.

    Liverpool dont really play much in midfield so it would be a bit much to say Wilnadum has been their best player ;)

    Since there is such a lovefest for Wilnadum

    * comparison between Wilnadum and Winks .. keep in mind Winks is 6 years younger

    I certainly don't receive wisdom from anybody who thinks they could've successfully sued Heung Min Son for completing his National Service for South Korea. ;)

    That sounds a lot like a reading fail on your part.

    I suggested that the threat of a court case might be enough to make him decide he didn't want to go and play soldiers. Most cases are settled before they get anywhere near a courtroom and I would have expected this to be the same.

    I said it before - as I’m that old - he reminds me of Stevie P. Hustle and bustle and sharp dribbly bursts forward. LOVE him.

    Minus Stevie's magnificent sliding tackle, now outlawed of course.

    Very good today.

    One mistake early in the second half the only, small, blot.

    Was everywhere, positive and passed and tackled well.

    One of the best performances he's had imo. Did everything really well apart from the cross field passing, he can spend the summer working on that.

    Put in a great defensive shift and is our go to man when we transition from defence to attack.

    It’s his ability to make space for himself under pressure that continues to make him stand out to me. Coupled with his good forward passes, driving runs, work rate and stamina, and improving defensive position and awareness, I continue to think he could be a title winning caliber starting midfielder eventually.

    Would be great if he could improve his long passing though...

    Something he's definitely improved on this season is how he can pick up the ball and drive forward with it, I didnt see him as having that in his locker previously. Maybe he's learnt that from spending time on the training pitch with Sissoko:D...
