The forgotten Liverpool man who has given Jurgen Klopp timely reminder of his first-team credentials

It has been a season of frustration for Dominic Solanke. m8bet After what appeared to be a breakout campaign at Liverpool in his first year at Anfield, the 21-year-old has found himself in the situation he had hoped to avoid when opting to leave Chelsea in 2017. The striker made 30 appearances under Jurgen Klopp last season, including five Premier League starts. With 581 minutes, he gained more top-flight playing time than other exalted England prospects such as Reiss Nelson, Phil Foden and Kyle Walker-Peters.

This season, however, is yet to yield a single second of senior football for Solanke; he has been named in just one match day squad, m8bet the League Cup defeat to Chelsea, and has even been forced to gain minutes with the Under-23s once more. His two-in-two record at that level will have no doubt alerted Klopp, as will his exploits on international duty for England Under-21s this week. Two goals on Thursday night in the 2-1 win against Italy were followed by another double on Tuesday, this time in the 5-1 win over Denmark.

His two goals last week were both from crosses - both taken expertly - with the kind of finish Solanke can make his trademark. Last night, his deft finish against the Danes went viral. With his back to goal, m8bet he lofted the ball over the advancing goalkeeper with a superb back heeled effort, struck with the class of a Ryder Cup golfer around the greens. He is towering, powerful, physical. He is a presence in the box, with intelligent movement but often lacking the finishing touch associated with a top striker; it is an aspect of his game he is developing, as shown this week, in spectacular style.
