Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made eight changes to his starting eleven in the 2-0 win over Watford on Sunday.

The German manager rotated his squad in the wake of Thursday's Europa League semi-final win over Villarreal and was left encouraged by the performances of his youngsters in the convincing win over the Hornets at Anfield.

In particular, Klopp praised Sheyi Ojo, Connor Randall, Cameron Brannagan and Kevin Stewart who all impressed for the Reds

He said: "We had to give them the opportunity and they took it. They took the chance.

"Ojo, everybody saw already what a wonderful player he is. Connor Randall only a few minutes.

"Cameron Brannagan, I told him when he came in 'It's not your position, sorry'. But after the game I had to say 'Forget it, you can play this position too'. It was really good.

"Kevin Stewart worked so hard in a central position. We did everything, everything was better."
