Klopp calls up 'very creative' Liverpool gem to first-team training ahead of Saints clash
Liverpool are back in Premier League action on Saturday as they host Southampton at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges go into the game on the back of two great results in the top flight and Champions League.
Liverpool were left reeling by their 3-2 defeat to West Ham before the international break, but have bounced back in style.
First, the Reds hammered Arsenal 4-0 last weekend, before running out 2-0 winners over Porto in European competition.
Klopp has been putting the Liverpool players through their paces this week, and an academy talent has been pictured at Kirkby.
Elijah Dixon-Bonner is a “very creative” 20-year-old midfielder who joined the Reds academy from Arsenal in 2015.
He has also made 53 appearances for the Anfield Under-23s and has been capped for England at Under-17 level.
In the 2017-18 campaign, Dixon-Bonner made a big impression with the Under-18s under the guidance of his hero Steven Gerrard.
Dixon-Bonner signed his first professional contract at Liverpool in 2018, and in 2018-19, he was part of the victorious FA Youth Cup squad.
He scored a penalty during the shootout victory over Manchester City in the final.
Dixon-Bonner made his Liverpool debut early last year, coming off the bench late on in the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury.
He has two senior Liverpool appearances to his name, also featuring in the Carabao Cup win over Preston in October.
Dixon-Bonner is yet to feature in the Premier League, but could he get his chance this season?
