Liverpool boss Klopp delighted with Elliott, Beck and Gordon for defeat of Mainz

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with their friendly win against Mainz.

Owen Beck's firm delivery from the flank proved the deciding moment on 86 minutes for the 1-0 win via an own goal.

Klopp said afterwards: "Harvey [Elliott] again first half, really, really good. The kids are doing well, I have to say. I really enjoyed a lot watching them and helping them to understand the game better and better and better, to understand the position and they have to be brave otherwise it would be a waste of time.

"That Owen was involved in the goal is nice for him, he played good I have to say. Second half we played a different system but you have to make the difference in little one-on-one situations; if you get the ball and only are passing, we have always eight players in really good positions. You are everywhere under pressure, but if you can make a little difference with a little acceleration then all of sudden the game changed.

"We did that, Owen did that in a couple of times, Kaide [Gordon] did it as well. We had good balls in behind for Divock [Origi]. Billy [Koumetio] played his first game of pre-season, was OK as well, so all fine."
