With the news circling that Virgil van Dijk had COVID and wouldn’t be available for the game against Newcastle United, attention turned to Ibou Konate.

The 22-year-old made his eighth start of the season, helping to keep five clean sheets in his limited game time so far this campaign.

Our No.5 did a great job when called upon, once again, and this lead to many supporters taking to social media to share their opinions on how he performed.

It’s no easy feat to take the place of our No.4 but the young defender has looked solid in all his appearances so far this season.

He still has a lot to learn but the former RB Leipzig man will be learning every day as he trains with some brilliant defenders and attackers, being so young means that he has so much time to learn and grow too.

Here’s to many more good games from the Frenchman and we can’t wait to see how much he can improve under Jurgen Klopp.
