Kostas Tsimikas was slapped by Milner for lack of concentration
In the 69th minute, Tsimikas received the ball in a comfortable position in a situation that was not dangerous, but the number 21 of Liverpool played hesitantly, indecisively and lost the ball to Lees Melou’s feet, creating favorable conditions for Todd. Cantwell passes the ball to Lukas Rupp.
No 7’s long shot from the Norwich side failed to hit Alisson Becker’s goal and the visitors were still leading with a safe score of 2-0, but Tsimikas was still “total insulted” by Milner with a slap. After that, the number 7 of Liverpool also shouted loudly in the face of the 25-year-old junior.
In this match, Milner was given the captain’s armband because Jordan Henderson was not on Liverpool’s registration list.
Meanwhile, Tsimikas was arranged by Jurgen Klopp to play at left-back instead of Andrew Robertson because the star wearing the number 26 was injured in a friendly match on August 8 (Liverpool 1-1 Athletic Bilbao).
Tsimikas’ stats in the Norwich 0-3 Liverpool match (statistical source: Sofa Score, Who Scored):
6 ball clearance
3/4 successful tackles
I was passed over once
1 time to lose the ball
2 mistakes to help Norwich hit a shot
6/15 wins in a duel
1 time fouled
82 touches of the ball
0/12 accurate cross
36/46 passes on target (78%)
2/5 successful dribbles
The left side corridor of Tsimikas is often exploited by Norwich. But the Greek defender still received Klopp’s praise: “At least in the first 80 minutes, he played very well. Kostas contributed a lot in both defense and attack.”
