Owen Hargreaves & Glenn Hoddle Wowed by ‘Perfect’ Liverpool Star Against Fulham

Owen Hargreaves and Glenn Hoddle were left amazed by Alexis Mac Allister’s stunning strike during Liverpool’s incredible 4-3 win over Fulham on Sunday at Anfield.

On paper, you would have expected Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to secure a comfortable three points against indifferent Fulham, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Going in at the break, the two teams were level at 2-2 in what was a very entertaining 45 minutes of action and then they took it up a level during the final 20 minutes of the game.

And whilst Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a brilliant free-kick to open the scoring, it was Alexis Mac Allister’s strike that was the best part of the first half, with Owen Hargreaves stating ‘this is what you dream of’, as he told Premier League Productions (03/12/23 at 3 pm). 

It’s one of the reasons why the Reds purchased the World Cup winner in the summer because, aside from his box-to-box abilities, he can strike the ball from a distance. 

Striking the ball from an angle, from about 30 yards out, not only was Alexis Mac Allister’s goal precise, but it was also too quick for Bernd Leno in between the sticks. 

During Glenn Hoddle’s playing days, he was known to produce magic on the ball and he was also left impressed by the 24-year-old.

Alex Mac Allister’s long-range goal for Liverpool 

“This is what you dream of,” said Hargreaves. “To hit a ball like that when it just drops to you. And you are thinking ‘right, bang!’.

“Technically, that is perfect. There was a little bit of a fade on it. That’s why you play. A brilliant goal.”

Hoddle added: “He just cuts across it, doesn’t he?! Beautiful.”

Liverpool’s defence is a worry

Strikers win you games. Defences win you titles.

Liverpool fans know that more than anybody, especially given how close a certain Brendan Rodgers came once upon a time.

When the Reds lifted the title under Klopp, their defence was outstanding, from back to front.

But it’s showing signs that it won’t be able to cross that line this time around because there is still a lot of work to be done at the back.

In truth, the aim at the start of the season for Liverpool would have been to secure a Champions League finish, so from that aspect, they are on track.
