Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was impressed with new signing Diogo Jota as the attacker made his first start for the Reds in a Carabao Cup defeat against Arsenal.
After a goalless 90 minutes at Anfield on Thursday, the Gunners would triumph 5-4 on penalties.
“Diogo made his first appearance from the start and it looked really good in a lot of moments – his physicality mixed with his technique is really a nice thing to watch,” Klopp said post-match.
“All the others just did their jobs. We had Rhys Williams, for the first time since I am here at least, on the pitch against a proper Premier League side and he did exceptionally well.
“Neco had one or two moments, but apart from that, a really good game. Don’t forget he played against Nicolas Pepe that was quite a big signing and quite a quality player.
“Harry Wilson, my God, played in centre-mid more or less in position No.8, defended well and I saw his football skills as well.
“I liked a lot of parts of the game but we lost in the end and that’s the part I don’t like.”
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno proved decisive on the night as he saved two spot-kicks in the shootout.
The Gunners’ No.1 left Klopp frustrated and the Liverpool boss let the player know his feelings after the match.
“I told him after the game I was not too happy about that! Both halves were good, but in the second half we shot him warm for the penalty shootout. Really good moments,” Klopp said of Leno.
