Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara produced a moment of brilliance to assist Sadio Mane’s leveller against Wolves at Anfield on the final day of the Premier League season. Commentator Peter Drury labelled his pass ‘illegal’ as the Reds took a huge step towards a 20th top-flight title.

Liverpool have to beat Wolves and hope Aston Villa force Manchester City to drop points at the Etihad Stadium if they are to lift the third trophy of a potential quadruple this season. And while Jurgen Klopp’s side went into half-time at 1-1, Man City trail 1-0 at the break.

Anfield was stunned into silence just three minutes in as Raul Jimenez found Pedro Neto across the box, and the Portuguese winger fired past Alisson. However, the hosts’ endless stream of quality showed on 24 minutes as Thiago assisted Mane with an outrageous backheel pass.

After receiving the ball from Ibrahima Konate, the Spanish midfielder produced a defence-splitting past while facing away from the goal. And Mane, who found space behind Conor Coady, ran through before slotting a left-footed shot past Jose Sa whilst under pressure.
