Ryan Gravenberch was treated to some extra minutes on the pitch against West Ham as Liverpool asserted their dominance in the second-half of a game once again.
Fans may have noticed Jurgen Klopp stroking the Dutchman’s chin as he offered a few words of encouragement ahead of the midfielder’s introduction at Anfield.
Whether it was the motivational speech or the contact, the 21-year-old’s beaming smile before running onto the pitch it sure to have a few supporters chuckling away.
