Ex-Chelsea man loved what he saw from ‘brilliant’ Liverpool gem vs Villa

Andy Townsend had plenty of appreciation for one Liverpool gamer throughout the 3-3 draw versus Aston Villa on Monday night.

Although the outcome matters little in the total context of the Reds’ season, it was a memorable journey to the Midlands for Jarell Quansah, who scored his very first Premier League objective with a fantastic header to make it 3-1 early in the 2nd half.

Speaking on Premier League Productions, the previous Chelsea midfielder liked the strategy that the 21-year-old displayed in nodding the ball over Emilinao Martinez.

Townsend stated: “Totally unmarked, Lucas Digne is slow to react again. He’s got a free run Jarell Quansah, but having got there, he hangs in the air brilliantly. He’s doing everything he can to keep that under the bar, steers it perfectly into the far corner. That’s a brilliant header.”

Quansah’s objective was naturally the standout minute from his night at Villa Park, however aside from a doubtful minute in the lead-up to Youri Tielemans’ early equaliser, the Liverpool centre-back had a remarkable match in general.

As per Sofascore, the 21-year-old finished 66 of his 72 passes (92%), carried out 3 effective long balls, won 5 of his 8 battles and made 4 clearances, 4 blocks, 3 takes on and 2 interceptions.

While Digne can legally be criticised over his function in the 3rd Reds objective, the man in the number 78 t-shirt still did remarkably to direct his header into the visitors’ web, completing with the aplomb of an experienced centre-forward.

It was the ideal method for Quansah to top a mostly splendid very first season at Premier League level, and he now has a strong platform on which to construct for the post-Jurgen Klopp age at Liverpool.
