That's despite Dominic Solanke and Nathaniel Clyne both leaving the club yesterday and joining Bournemouth.

Klopp's suggestion that there was even younger players than Trent Alexander-Arnold ready to step up and fill in for the departed Clyne jars with the situation of Solanke. Knowing you are fit and you can play but constantly not getting selected for the team is disappointing, ' said Clyne.

"I think for Dom it was absolutely right to go". The England Under 21 worldwide, who was handed his first cap for the senior England side against Brazil in November 2017, has been nursing a muscle injury in recent weeks but is now close to a return.

"He trained well but you can not stay confident over that time, especially in that age group".

"We needed a right-back with our injuries, and Nathan was the obvious candidate; a player of huge experience and undoubted quality".

The defender has played just five times this season and managed only a similar number in the previous campaign because of a back problem, and could feature in Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie against Brighton to help bolster a depleted squad.

But there was one talented singer and actress who clearly was having the best time ever. Lady Gaga knows how to do a proper tribute, even if it's by accident.

"In the other moments, the squad was full and we had different options".

"When I came in, he played like what I felt was each game".

Bournemouth are now in worst form but Howe will hope that the youngster serves as the inspirational figure his players desperately need to return back to winning ways. But listen, we're not going to get any favours, whether it's on the pitch or off it and we're always up against it and that's when we're good.

"You can always keep a player, but to keep him in the right shape with the right amount of confidence that's not easy".

As a manager as you can imagine having an option like Clyney is good. "Maybe yes, but we don't want to block our young players when we see something could be better for them". The goalkeeper position is a different one but Simon, I could write a book about all the good things I could say about him.
