Liverpool New Boy Thiago Managed To Break A Premier League Record In Just 45 Minutes

Thiago wasted no time in settling into Premier League life by breaking a league record in his first 45 minutes in a Liverpool shirt.

And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp finally landed his man last week as the Reds splashed out £20m (plus add-ons) to sign Thiago from Bayern Munich.

Thiago received his debut only two days after signing for Liverpool as he came off the bench at half-time in the Reds' 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Opta found that the former Bayern star broke the record for the most successful passes made by a player who played a maximum of 45 minutes.

Thiago completed a whopping 75 passes during his time on the pitch, which was more than any Chelsea player managed over the course of the entire match.

Frank Lampard's side were reduced to 10 men after Andreas Christensen was dismissed shortly before half-time.
