Speaking to BBC Sport, the German manager was full of praise for one of Liverpool’s newest signings, with the 22-year-old playing a versatile role at Stamford Bridge.

Szoboszlai operated in three different roles against Chelsea as Klopp’s starting XI sprung up many surprises, with the Hungarian international showing off his ability to play numerous positions quite well on the day.

Whilst Liverpool were unable to come away with all three points, the building blocks are there for the likes of Szoboszlai to impress for the Reds in the upcoming games.

Indeed, Szoboszlai’s versatility will make the playmaker a favourite with Klopp, and the Liverpool boss was astounded by the Hungarian’s performance against Chelsea.

Klopp said about Szoboszlai’s display: “The new players gave us a massive opportunity in offensive moments. Dom [Szoboszlai] is a beast, he played three positions today. Top boys, top players.”

Szoboszlai could turn out to be one of the most exciting signings Liverpool make in some years, and Klopp’s comments will go a long way in settling the youngster at Anfield.

A first goal and assist still alludes Szoboszlai, but with the playmaker impressing in a midfield-three and all over the pitch, the Hungarian won’t need long to get up and running for Liverpool.

And praise from Klopp will help Szoboszlai, who is a player who thrives off motivation and the eagerness to always impress and improve throughout the season.
