“I think Alexis Mac Allister is becoming one of the best midfielders around,” the Covering Liverpool journalist wrote in his unique EOTK Insider column with Empire of the Kop.

“I was talking about this yesterday… you get these players who can take a while to enter peoples’ radars as great players, but then you take a deeper look at their career and there’s this clear correlation between them being in a team and the team being really good.

You look at people down the years like Arturo Vidal who are always around successful teams but then you don’t always necessarily associate them with being world-class players, but they are always around world-class teams. Mac Allister is that, isn’t he?

“You look at Brighton emerging as one of the brightest teams in Europe and that was when he was in their midfield, all of a sudden Argentina win the World Cup and he’s in their midfield, and now he’s at Liverpool and they’re top of the league with nine games to go and playing really good football.”
