Rhys Williams had an eventful Premier League debut for Liverpool on Wednesday night as the Reds secured victory against Spurs at Anfield.
The young centre-half was the last man as Son Heung-min broke through and levelled the opposition up after Mo Salah’s opener, but he was relatively solid at the back – which alone is impressive – and he also played a role in Roberto Firmino’s late match-winner.
Williams made a run for Andy Roberton’s 90th-minute corner-kick, which diverted the attention of Toby Alderweireld, leaving Bobby with more space than he should have – and the Brazilian gladly took full advantage!
