Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum became the Premier League team of the week and has earned praise from expert Garth Crooks.
The Dutch international had a good game for the Reds as they got back on the winning track with a win away from Sheffield United at the weekend, keeping their top four hopes alive after a recent terrible run.
Liverpool have had an injury nightmare, to be fair, so they’ve done well to put in a guaranteed performance with so many key players missing, although Crooks worries what could happen if Wijnaldum joins that roster of players currently. on the sidelines.
Praising Wijnaldum in his BBC Sport In the column, Crooks said: “Wijnaldum once again seemed to keep calm for Liverpool in the absence of Jordan Henderson.
“If something happened to Wijnaldum between now and the end of the season, considering his disabled list, I think Liverpool would collapse.”
Liverpool fans will certainly hope to have a bit more luck with injuries in the coming weeks as they no longer have players like Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
Still, there is also a concern for Wijnaldum’s long-term future as he nears the end of his contract at Anfield.
