​Liverpool boss Klopp praises 'unpredictable' Solanke

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised the 'unpredictability' of new signing Dominic Solanke.

The 20-year old scored a cracking debut goal for the club in the Reds 2-0 defeat of Crystal Palace in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

"It's a wonderful goal," Klopp told Sky Sports. "You need to be unpredictable, especially as a striker.

"You can be as good as you want, but if you always do what everybody knows you will do then nothing happens.

"He could have played the pass but he shoots and it was a very good idea.

"He is a good footballer, a smart boy and has a really good attitude, so really happy to have him. It's nice to have him around, he wants to learn and scoring goals is the best thing he can do."
