James Milner’s Ibrahima Konate prediction will please Liverpool fans

Liverpool hammer Crystal Palace

Liverpool would face off with Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

The Reds headed into the tie looking to continue their fine unbeaten start to the season.

Crystal Palace were no doubt full of confidence, too, though, after smashing Tottenham 3-0 the weekend prior.

However, the Eagles would this time find themselves on the receiving end of a 3-0 drubbing, with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita all finding the net on Saturday.

Said result and results elsewhere over the weekend mean Liverpool are now joint-top of the Premier League with Chelsea.

Milner’s Konate prediction

As well as picking up a win on Saturday, Liverpool were also boosted by the positive display of Ibrahima Konate.

Konate was handed his competitive debut for Liverpool vs Palace, following his move from RB Leipzig over the summer.

Konate started the tie and completed the full 90 minutes, of course keeping a clean sheet in the process.

The defender has already received praise from Jurgen Klopp following the match, with the German labelling Konate’s debut as ‘top’.

And now, James Milner is the latest Liverpool main to praise the Reds’ only signing of the summer.

When speaking about the former Leipzig man, Milner stated that he was really impressed with him before predicting that Konate will be a seriously good player for this Liverpool side.

“He has been brilliant. He’s very strong, as you can see. He’s quick, good on the ball. I’m really impressed with him.

“It’s not easy when you don’t get into the team straight away. He would have been itching to get out there and play at Anfield.

“It was a very hard job for him at Anfield with me beside him! But on the plus side, Virg was on the other. He’s a top class player, he’s going to be a seriously good player for this team.

“Watching a few games on the sidelines hasn’t done him any harm, he can see the intensity and get a feel for the crowd.”
