Garth Crooks has praised Dominik Szoboszlai’s performance for Liverpool against AFC Bournemouth, with the 22-year-old running the show in midfield.

Writing for BBC Sport, the pundit hailed the Hungarian international as Szoboszlai impressed in Liverpool’s 3-1 win against the Cherries.

The former RB Leipzig star has settled in nicely at Anfield with Szoboszlai taking up a new role in central midfield alongside fellow summer signing Alexis Mac Allister.

With the Argentinian being sent off against Bournemouth, though, the majority of the creative workload was placed on Szoboszlai’s shoulders, though the youngster took on the task and then some.

The versatile talent was arguably Liverpool’s best player against Bournemouth, and Crooks was impressed with what he saw from Jurgen Klopp’s newest addition on Saturday.

The pundit said: “He can certainly play. Liverpool’s new signing Szoboszlai showed all the touches of a good player against Bournemouth and looks like he wants to be constantly involved in the play.”

Szoboszlai has the potential to become one of the best players in the world, and the youngster is already showing glimpses of that at Liverpool since joining this summer.

Inheriting the mythical no. 8 shirt, Szoboszlai already looks comfortable standing on the shoulders of giants, with more expected to come from the playmaker.

And it won’t be a shock if the midfielder becomes Liverpool’s creative powerhouse this season, with Szoboszlai having all the tools at his disposal to become an icon at Anfield.
