Crystal Palace hield Liverpool in bedwang in eigen huis (0-0). Bij de thuisploeg stond Sambi Lokonga de hele partij tussen de lijnen en de huurling van Arsenal vindt stilaan helemaal zijn draai. De voormalige speler van RSC Anderlecht kwam ijzersterk voor de dag en maakte best veel indruk. Er was de nodige lof.
Patrick Vieira was in het verleden een centrale middenvelder en is nu de manager van Lokonga. Hij kan er zeer veel van leren. Vincent Kompany vergeleek enkele jaren geleden Lokonga dan weer een beetje met Yaya Touré inzake manier van voetballen, niet inzake niveau. Bij Arsenal lukte het niet voor Lokonga, maar Vieira raakt duidelijk wel de juiste snaar bij de Belg, die door zijn goede prestaties bij Crystal Palace mag hopen op een selectie voor de komende interlandperiode. Lokonga kreeg veel lof na zijn match tegen Liverpool.
Liverpool were beatable today, a point seems a bit of a let down. Thought our defence and Lokonga were superb. He's going to be some player.— Joe C (@jchow_1) February 25, 2023
Oh and true to form that Darren England was up to his old tricks again. That bloke never ceases to amaze me.
Lokonga was brilliant against Liverpool yesterday. Vieira has unlocked what might be the next Yaya Toure💪💪 pic.twitter.com/YEjmLTGS75— Brad. (@DiabloGooner) February 26, 2023

Are Arsenal fans ready to stop lying to themselves and admit Sambi Lokonga is a baller?— KNGDM Sports (@KNGDM_Prince) February 26, 2023

What has Patrick Vieira given Sambi Lokonga ffs. I was almost asking Edu to get him in the summer today. Completely held his own against that Liverpool midfield. Impressive.— 𝕮𝖔𝖐𝖊💧 (@Abdulherphyz) February 25, 2023

Sambi Lokonga was unplayable in that game. He was by far the best midfielder on the pitch.— 'Dayo (@_Paash_) February 25, 2023
