      Very happy for him getting his goal but I'm still not impressed by him, a loan to a team where he's a guaranteed starter next season will do him the world of good.

      I would love us to gamble and keep him as 2nd choice behind Firmino, but I also understand why you would want him on loan and a better backup to Firmino.

      The Solanke I saw today was the Solanke in the U20's world cup where he was England's best player.

      That today was the best I have seen him play for us in a competitive game.   Hope he gives us more next season.

      Was ready to write him off after his first 2 touches, let him and us down badly but he changed my mind. The through ball for Mo's goal was wonderful and although I thought the safer bet, was to square the ball to Mo for a tap in, was made up when he smashed it home and got the monkey off his back.

      i feel like he gets lots of chances, hes just not a clinical finisher. Needs to go on loan and we need a new striker.

      He is a very frustrating player, kind of the same as Moreno, has lots of the right attributes but just isn't a complete player, in Moreno's case you just know he will do one big f**k up every game and with Solanke its the finishing, everything else is there for him, strength, pace, game intelligence he just needs to start putting away the chances.

      Is he injured at the moment?

      No idea how Origi got a game time ahead of him last night or could it be he will be loaned off in January.

      Origi was atrocious. I'd honestly thought we sold him already.

      Couple of goals tonight for 21s surely would be a better option than Origi

      Not long turned 21, so it's getting to the point now where he needs to be pushing for a regular first team place, not as a starter, but an option off the bench.

      How can he overcome Salah, Mané, Bobby, Shaq and even Sturridge? No way. He'll follow Origi footsteps soon.

      "Option off the bench".
      Which part of that says he's going to replace anyone?

      He's 21, highly rated at Liverpool, and will only get better.

      Maybe, hopefully. I didn't see any potential yet. He's tall, not good ball handling, more of a classical striker. I wonder what Klopp saw in him for he usually likes striker that can play, not just execute. But then Solanke never got some serious playing time, so I could be way off....

      Really?
      OK.

      Lewandowski pretty much negates your statement.

      Mind when people were gagging for more during pre season season in 2017? The abuse this guy received last season was unreal for someone who'd only just come out of the U20 World Cup for England and had never played in the Premier League before. Agree with Swab - he's a talented youngster and very highly rated. Deserves time and RESPECT because he's a classy prospect.

      All the talk about how great Brewster was in the U17 WC and him being a future star, yet nothing much on Solanke when he was player of the tournament in the u20's. He has huge potential, and he does need to play week in, week out to really develop.

      I still think he showed enough to warrant more play time this season, but with Firmino and Sturridge, possibly Origi ahead of him, I struggle to see where he fits in for us :( I think a couple of seasons on loan to a Prem club would do him and us the world of good with him returning at the age of 23... pretty much do what Chelsea does with their youth.

      I thinks he deserves to be given more of a chance than he has had so far.

      He is good on the floor for a big guy, will press for 90 mins and willing to learn but will only pick up the goal scoring knack by getting more game time.

      Sturridge is now only a impact player and Origi will be gone in the January window if the Woves rumours are correct.

      Glad to see him get a couple of goals midweek for the u21s. A loan spell post January at a prem club would seem to be the best option for the lad. He’ll never show his best with the odd 10-15 minutes (not that he is getting that) and baring injuries I can’t see him getting much of an opportunity based on the current pecking order. If another Prem club aren’t interested maybe Stevie will come in for him.

      Solanke staying or not depends on FA cup progress. Klopp has said so in enough words.

      It would be better, if Solanke would go out on loan, given that his youth desperately needs playing experience. Shame that it didn't work out with Crystal Palace.
