Liverpool boss Klopp: Blair stronger for tough debut

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Harvey Blair for his debut in their Carabao Cup win against Preston.

Blair started the tie in attack alongside Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.

Klopp later said: "For Harvey it was really not easy in the first half because we just didn't play well and for a striker it's really bad – first game and stuff like this with all the things that can happen.

"But then we could see when Neco (Williams) played a bit higher we had all of a sudden another target there and that helped definitely."

The manager added: "Conor Bradley is a real talent as well, big heart and really football smart. That then gave Neco the opportunity to push up slightly higher."
