Alberto Aquilani – Aquilani continued his good form in a Juventus shirt in Juve’s 2-0 win over Genoa at the weekend. Despite being substituted for Hasan Salihamidzic in the second half, Aqua ran the game from central midfield with some pin point accurate passes. He looked to have acres of space in midfield alongside Felipe Melo, and looked calm and collected on the ball, distributing balls left and right. Most impressive was Aqua’s long diagonal passes which more often than not reached their targets with deadly accuracy. Last week, the Italian midfielder expressed that he will like to stay at Juve after his loan spell finishes at the end of the season, although he is not sure whether the Italian club can afford the €13million option that the “Old Lady” has on him. It would be fair to say though that the pace of Serie A does suit the player, and although it is hard to say whether he could have had the same impact at Liverpool as he wasn’t really given the chance, the time and space available to him in Italy allows Aqua to pick out passes at will. Highlights of his display are shown in the video below. Look out for the clever flick at 2.24:
Daniel Ayala – The Spanish defender has impressed during his loan spell at Championship side Hull but he was missing from the Tigers’ 1-0 home victory against Ipswich Town with a slight hamstring injury. Kamil Zayatte replaced the Spaniard in the team and Hull sealed victory through a Robert Koren strike from 25 yards out just 13 minutes from time. Ayala had really impressed against Preston North End in Hull’s 2-0 victory at Deepdale the previous match though. He was up against a classic English centre forward in Jon Parkin, and more than held his own. New Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli was at the match to check out Ayala’s progress, giving the player some encouragement that he is still in Liverpool’s plans.
