Adam Bate, for Sky Sports:
With his pace, dribbling ability and flair for the spectacular, Markovic was the game’s standout player. This was the young man Liverpool had bought. The two-time title winner with Partizan Belgrade who team-mate Vladimir called the “perfect player”. The treble winner at Benfica who Nemanja Matic claimed “could be one of Europe’s best players in his position”.
He certainly looked good, much better than the rest of the team—especially when they went a man up. Still, it was a win without their best player (Sterling), and with Tottenham and West Ham losing points, they are edging closer to that fourth spot.
