Talking on Carvalho, Klopp said: “He [Carvalho] scored now two times in the last two games. Recently, birthday. So it’s likely a superior week.

“He is an outstanding player, wonderful talent, very mature in a lot of departments already. So I’m happy for him. 

“Harvey [Elliott] was the best player on the pitch and Fabio decides the game. That says a lot about the talent of the boys.” 

The German boss then went on to heap more praise on Elliott and feels he is ready to become an important player for Liverpool. 

“Just a year older and more training sessions in his legs, more games played. He started an exceptional season last year, he did, he played a similar level,” he added. 

“I cannot now compare is he now already better than last year. More influential, for sure. He is a midfielder, he is a guy we need on the ball and these kind of things. 

“He did well. There’s nothing particular we work on with Harvey that we say you need to improve this or that, it’s just for all the boys actually, creating sessions where the boys get forced to make the next step. 

“That’s it. Where you deal better with smaller spaces, higher tempo, all these kind of things – especially for a midfielder who is constantly under pressure. You have to do that but you need a proper skillset for that, to improve – and that’s obvious that he has that.” 

Klopp’s men have now won two games in a row and will be hoping to have put their poor start behind them. 

The two youngsters in Elliott and Carvalho could become very important players for Liverpool this season, especially with the current injuries to first-team players.
