Speaking after Liverpool’s 1-0 FA Cup win over Wolves, Jurgen Klopp discussed an impressive performance from Stefan Bajcetic, named two Wolves players who have been linked with the Reds and provided an update on fitness by Darwin Nunez.

Baytic praise

Was this the night Bajcetic came of age as a Liverpool first-team player?

Klopp was clearly impressed by the 18-year-old’s performance and also had some nice things to say about fellow midfielders Thiago and Naby Keita.

“He’s a good guy, a good player, very smart in his movements…” said the boss of Bajcetic’s performance.

“Having Thiago next to him is very useful, I think. Thiago talks a lot on the pitch and Naby was really there tonight which obviously helps a lot.

Reference to Neves & Nunes?

Wolves, of course, have two midfielders that Liverpool would be interested in.

Ruben Neves must be
en in some quarters has been linked with a move to Anfield in January, while Matheus Nunes is believed to be a target for the summer window.
“The moment you have Neves in the game, pretty much everything changes,” Klopp said.
“And if Nunes is also on the pitch, it’s twice as difficult.”


Same answer on Firmino’s future

Bizarrely, a journalist took the opportunity to ask Klopp a question he had answered more than once in recent weeks. Ahead of the game, Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg reiterated that Firmino wanted to extend his contract at Liverpool.

And when asked if he wants to keep the Brazilian at the club, Klopp replied as usual:

“I’ve said it before. Yes, of course I want to keep him at the club.

Nunez back against Chelsea?

Good news on the injury side? Perhaps.

The manager says he hopes Darwin Nunez can train again in the next few days, which should give him a chance to play against Chelsea on Saturday.

When asked if anyone he impressed against Wolves this weekend had “worked their way into his thinking”, Klopp said:

“Yes, yes.

“I don’t think it would be nice if after a game I said ‘this is the team for the next eight weeks’ or whatever. Let’s see. “I hope Darwin comes to train again tomorrow or Thursday, then of course he can participate.”
