Liverpool fans are singing the praises of Adama Traore after the Wolves attacker scored twice to shock Premier League champions Manchester City.
Liverpool maintained their 100 per cent winning start to the league campaign on Saturday with a last-gasp win over Leicester courtesy of a James Milner penalty.
That win pushed Liverpool eight points clear at the top of the table, although that was expected to be reduced back to five with City hosting Wolves.
But Nuno Espirito Santo’s outfit put in a spirited display at the Etihad to frustrate Pep Guardiola’s side.
Then Traore delivered a sucker punch with 10 minutes left after finishing off a counter attack before delivering the final blow in stoppage time as he broke the City offside trap to score past Ederson for a second time.
Liverpool fans were clearly watching with bated breathe with every result in the Premier League having consequences on the title.
And given how Traore has now helped give Liverpool a huge lead in the table, some fans are keen to see Jurgen Klopp make a move for him in the January transfer window.
One fan tweeted: “Sign Adama Traore immediately @LFC.”
Another joked: “Adama Traore is Liverpool’s player of the month.”
A third wrote: “Adam Traore should be given free roam of Liverpool.”
A fourth said: “@LFC Give Adama Traore a 5 year contract.”
Guardiola was dealt another injury blow earlier this week when Kevin De Bruyne picked up a groin injury in last weekend’s win over Everton.
The Belgium international is expected to be back ready after the international break though when City travel to Crystal Palace.
Liverpool meanwhile face a tough next set of fixtures though with games against Manchester United and Tottenham before a crunch match against City in November.
The Reds were unable to beat City in the league last season, drawing the match at Anfield before losing in Manchester.
