Jurgen Klopp praised Dominic Solanke who last night got an assist on his full Premier League debut.
The young Englishman, already a full international, made Sadio Mane’s opener with a clever flick, but should have scored a goal of his own when through on goal following Roberto Firmino’s genius.
Klopp waxed lyrical about the potential of his attacker following the game, claiming what excites him most is Solanke’s incredibly high ceiling.
Jürgen Klopp on Dominic Solanke, who got an assist on his first PL start for #LFC: "He should have scored! He's fantastic and can improve in pretty much everything. That’s probably the best news. I'm really happy I could give him this opportunity – he's a really good player" pic.twitter.com/rsWHyxERfs

We don’t think Solanke will keep his spot in the side for the Brighton clash this coming Saturday, with Klopp almost certain to bring Coutinho and Mo Salah back from the outset.
Salah only played 20 minutes last night, while the Brazilian stayed on the bench throughout.
However, the way Klopp is rotating at the moment, we wouldn’t be surprised if one of Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino are benching again – making it possible that Solanke will feature at some point.
