Klopp calls 'outstanding' 18-year-old up to Liverpool first-team training ahead of Wolves clash
Liverpool will hope to make it five wins in a row in all competitions on Saturday when they head to Wolves in a 3pm Premier League kickoff.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have been simply outstanding since returning from the international break, scoring four in three of their last games.
Liverpool hammered Arsenal 4-0 on 20 November before beating Porto 2-0 in the Champions League four days later.
The Anfield outfit then put four unanswered goals past Southampton before heading to Everton and winning 4-1.
Up next, Liverpool head to Molineux to face Diogo Jota’s former club, currently eighth in the Premier League table.
Klopp has been putting his players through their paces at Kirkby and, this week, Liverpool academy gem Harvey Davies was involved.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper has worked his way through the ranks after joining his hometown club as an Under-9 player.
He was a key part of the U18 squad which made it all the way to the final of the FA Youth Cup this year.
Davies has featured mostly at Under-18s level this season, but has also played once for the Under-23s.
He has also played in the EFL Trophy and UEFA Youth League this term.
Neil Mellor called him “outstanding” for his display against AC Milan’s youngsters in September.
Davies is yet to make his Liverpool senior debut but was named on the bench against RB Leipzig and Real Madrid last term.
Klopp clearly seems to rate the 6ft 3in stopper highly and it’s great to see him learning from Liverpool’s senior players and coaches at the AXA Training Centre.
