Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits the "outstanding" Naby Keita has yet to reproduce the form that persuaded him to sign the midfielder - but says he has a bright future at Anfield.

Hoever was born on 18 January, 2002.

After all, it was 242 days since Liverpool last lost a Premier League game in a 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in May.

Hoever arrived at the club last summer after coming through the ranks at Ajax.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's performance in their defeat at Manchester City indicates how far his side have progressed this term.

"I would not know how assess [the favourites]: one team with winter break, the other without", Krawietz told German magazine Kicker.

Manchester City won the match 2-1 with goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane against a sole response from Roberto Firmino.

These competitions rank lower than the Premier League, or the Champions League which resumes next month, but Guardiola does not want to give them up, even if it makes for a tough schedule.

In addition, the pay rank of one of the employees - Huawei's Digital Marketing Director - will also be frozen for 12 months. Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver on December 1 at the request of US law enforcement.

"Klopp has turned Liverpool into an absolute fighting machine - both attacking and defending", he explained.

"What we've got to do is get better and move forward".

Tall, fast, composed, comfortable in possession, with fine distribution and impressive awareness, the teenager has made it hard for Liverpool to keep a lid on his bubbling potential.

If Joel Matip and Joe Gomez had been fit, Ki-Jana would in all probability not train with us.

"It is just a joy to watch him". Is he exactly the player in his best time at Leipzig? No. It's nice we can see him day in, day out. He's early in his journey here, he'll take some time to adapt. He's still got a lot to do, sometimes you can ride the wave when you first get into teams, but he knows it's a long process. Joe had a good day, a very good day [on Friday], so that's good'.

"He's 16 and he's calm and assured in his decision-making".

"My players, if I am in doubt about somebody then I speak immediately, if something is wrong I speak immediately".
