This Wednesday, February 21, Liverpool had a very difficult match against Luton Town, for the 26th date of the Premier League, but they counted on a great performance by the Argentine Alexis Mac Allister. After 11 minutes, the play that silenced Anfield took place. Tahith Chong's shot from the left flank, a wall in the area, was not completely deflected by goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, who replaced the injured Alisson, and Chiedozie Ogbene appeared at the far post to head it in.

Colombian Luis Diaz was the most dangerous for the home side, with several chances created, but lacked the finishing ability to beat the Luton defense in the first half. One of the great virtues of the visit to justify the advantage was the incessant pressure on Klopp's team, forcing mistakes and keeping a good possession when they recovered it.

At the start of the second half, there was a controversial action with a possible penalty for Liverpool, for a handball in the area by Mpanzu, reviewed in the VAR, which was determined to be accidental. As the minutes went by, the home team increased the pressure in attack and after 10 minutes the equalizer came through a powerful header by Virgil van Dijk, after a cross by Alexis Mac Allister.

A masterful performance by Mac Allister

Two minutes later, another cross from the Argentinean made it 2-1, converted by Cody Gakpo at the near post. The match never lost intensity and the Reds' relentless attack paid off in the 70th minute with the third goal, scored by Luis Diaz, who had been looking for it all game long. He entered the box, beat a defender and scored powerfully in front of the goalkeeper. Then Harvey Elliott scored the final 4-1. Mac Allister's performance is a warning for Chelsea ahead of Sunday's Carabao Cup final.
