A number of Liverpool supporters were blown away by midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum’s performance in the team’s victory over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday.

The Reds ran out 4-0 winners in the Champions League contest at Anfield, with Wijnaldum forming a terrific midfield trio with Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Liverpool faithful clearly appreciated his display, with many of them commenting on the fact that the Dutch international, on a reported £90,000-per-week at the club [Source: Spotrac], has gone overlooked for far too long.

OPINION

Having witnessed Wijnaldum’s phenomenal start to the season you can certainly understand why the Liverpool supporters have been so effusive in their praise of him. His faultless display against Red Star was merely the latest in what has been a long line of assured performances at the start of this campaign. He has arguably been the Premier League’s finest midfielder through nine games and he continued that form on Wednesday night. The former Newcastle man has really picked his game up following the signings of Naby Keita and Fabinho this summer, producing his finest run of games yet in a red shirt. Those arrivals obviously prompted the 27-year-old to raise his game and he’s gone from strength to strength this term. He is without doubt one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp’s team sheet and certainly will be for as long as this run of form continues.
