Flanagan won praise from Brazilian legend Marcos Cafu on the weekend.
"No wonder Cafu loves him!" Aldo enthused in his Liverpool Echo column.
"His two early challenges on Aaron Lennon - firm, but fair - let the Tottenham man know what kind of afternoon he was in for.
"Flanagan knows what it means to play for Liverpool. He's a fan just like us, and what a time he is having.
"He wasted one pass all afternoon, and had the confidence to produce a Cruyff-turn in his own half for the third goal."
