In September of 2020 Liverpool FC made a staggering £30m pound bid for FC Bayern midfielder Thiago Alcantara. We predicted the move well before using advanced analytics to compare him to their current players. Our analysis includes advanced metrics to determine how many shot and goal creating actions each player created for their team as well as their expected goal and assist contributions to determine whether players were over or under performing. Thiago has been in and out with Covid-19 related medical issues, but when given time to play he has looked great at Anfield. This was used as part of a campaign to promote the player and received thousands of upvotes on Reddit, thousands of shares on Twitter and Facebook, and usage by Sky Sports and BBC news.
