Jurgen Klopp has named Dominik Szoboszlai as a player who has impressed in every Liverpool game this season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Anfield boss said the Hungarian international has been a ‘machine’ for the Reds since making the £60m switch from RB Leipzig to Liverpool this summer.

Szoboszlai scored his first goal for Liverpool at the weekend as the midfielder was again the star of the show in their 3-0 win against Aston Villa.

And Klopp has been blown away by Szoboszlai’s performances for Liverpool, with the midfielder easily the Reds’ best player this campaign despite being just four games in.

Klopp said when asked about Szoboszlai’s work rate for Liverpool since joining: “A machine, huh? That’s now all four games. Pretty impressive, absolutely impressive.

“Tactically smart, absolutely ready for the dirty part of the game – meaning hard work where it’s not the fancy stuff where they are shooting, crossing, running forward, stuff like this. No, he is really closing down opponents.”

Many expected Szoboszlai to be a hit at Liverpool, but few would have predicted the playmaker to be as good as he has been in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old has stole the show in essentially every game for Liverpool this season, and Klopp can take Szoboszlai’s game to a whole new level with the right training and tactics.

With Szoboszlai now off the mark for the season, the Hungarian can only get better from here, and the midfielder can become an icon at Anfield if he can maintain this level of performance.
