Rolls-Royce of a midfielder... Former Chelsea midfielder praises Liverpool midfielder who hit a bullet shot Match

After beating a strong West Ham team over the weekend, Liverpool faced Leicester City in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The matchup at Anfield, which welcomed the team relegated from the Premier League last season, started off with a fast counter-attack that led to the first goal of the game.

However, the visitors gradually regrouped and equalized with a goal from Cody Gakpo. Then, Dominik Szoboszlai, who was introduced midway through the game, scored a super goal to turn the game around.

Diogo Jota also scored in the final minutes to give the visitors a two-goal advantage and advance to the next round.

In a game in which young players such as Harvey Elliott, Ben Doak, and Jarell Quansah were active, the most talked about goal was the Hungarian midfielder’s second goal, a powerful mid-range shot.

Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley was generous with his praise for the shot, which reminded him of Steven Gerrard.

“He is a Rolls-Royce of a midfielder. He’s the captain of Hungary. He’s got a great touch, got good physicality, good range of passing, can score a goal,”

“When you go to a new club, big club, new league – I’m not saying the Premier League’s difficult and you can’t play – but sometimes it takes just a little bit of time to find your feet and adapt.”

“The one thing I’d say about this player is from the minute he’s pulled that Liverpool jersey on, he’s looked comfortable. He’s looked classy. And he looks like he’s been there all the time.”

“He’s been a great signing for them and he gives them a little bit of everything in the middle of the park. But that goal was special. He can strike a ball, that lad.”
