Jurgrn Klopp never thought of introducing the new signing that early but when he saw the excitement surrounding his coming from fans, he changed his mind and had him in later in the match, and the former Bayern Munich mildfielder not minding that he conceded the penalty that was saved by Allison, contributed slot to the winning of the match.
Thiago looked entirely at home in his new surroundings from the moment he set foot on the pitch. The circumstances were favourable for him given that Chelsea had been reduced to 10 men shortly before the break. But it was still striking how swiftly he started orchestrating proceedings.
The 29-year-old has been brought to Liverpool to give them something different, to add greater guile to a midfield currently defined by its industry and on the evidence of these first 45 minutes, he shows exactly what he will bring.
