The former Sporting Lisbon youngster has been extremely solid defensively at the imposing home of St. Etienne, who are approaching one calendar year since they were last beaten on home soil, indicating that he could’ve done a job back at Anfield, with the Reds struggling for defensive solidity despite the introduction of Dejan Lovren.

Ilori has also made an imapct at the other end, heading in an equaliser for Sagnol’s side at the far post after a corner had been half-cleared and then a scuffed volley back in found its way to Ilori, with a St. Etienne player failing to come off the line to play him offside.
