It took Thiago a full 26 games, or 1,753 minutes, but Saturday saw him finally trouble the scoresheet.
His bending finish from outside the box may have benefited from a deflection, but it was a goal of real ingenuity and much-deserved after another top display.
“It’s an amazing feeling,” he said of scoring his first goal for the club.
“But the most important thing is the three points and that we keep fighting for this small miracle that we can have.”
He added: “We try to be as objective as possible. There is a very small chance, but I think we’ve had chances in the past.
“The door sometimes closed for us, but the window is open – so we try to get through the window.”
Getting “through the window” will almost certainly require Liverpool to win all four of their remaining games, with Man United, West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace all to come in the next two weeks.
“I know that I’m not a specialist, not a goalscorer,” he continued.
“But I’m trying always to be near the area, to make the last pass or try to score.
“For sure, it’s very special because it’s my first goal, but I hope it’s not the last!”
