Mubarak Wakaso has aimed a dig at Christian Atsu after the latter got kicked out of the inaugural ePremier League invitational tournament.
Christian Atsu made it to the semi finals of the tournament after beating Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko in the round of 16 but Trent Alexander Arnold proved to be too tough for him as he received a 4-1 thrashing.
Hmmm after all the training given to you 2days ago you still went out there to disgrace your self and @NUFC
ah I told them you don’t know anything 😂😂😂😂😂 what a disgrace you see your face 😂😂😂 I laugh enter Volta market @ChristianAtsu20 what a day for me God no be lefty 😂
Atsu got off to the perfect start against Alexander-Arnold, with Allan Saint-Maximin putting the finish touch to a rapid counter attack at a virtual Anfield.
But the Reds’ full-back responded immediately, equalising with nine minutes on the clock before forcing Martin Dúbravka into a string of saves.
Alexander-Arnold then went in front just before half-time – former United midfielder Gini Wijnaldum finding the net – before Liverpool hit the woodwork twice from a flurry of attacks either side of the break.
Atsu almost found an equaliser after forcing the Liverpool goalkeeper into a fine block on the hour, but the hosts attacked again and quickly stretched their lead.
With Alexander-Arnold using the same tactic in the final third – getting the ball to the byline and cutting a low cross to the back-post – he created a simple finish for Mo Salah to establish what would become an unassailable lead.
The game was put to bed in the closing stages as Roberto Firmino scored Liverpool’s fourth with a fine finish, before Atsu came close to the tournament’s first goal direct from a free-kick, only for Joelinton’s superb effort to came back off the crossbar with the goalkeeper stranded.
