      Loved how he would come forward with the ball.. 👏🏼

      Once Klopp moulds him he will be a pillar at the back..

      Very small for a centre half, for the premier league. Looked the same height as Robbo. Played well but in the PL will he be hammerred in the air?

      Really like this kid I think there is a huge amount of raw potential still to harness. You can see he has all the ability to be a top CB, good positioning and awareness, stong in the air, good passer, physical. He lacks a bit of pace, and sometimes plays it too safe passing back to the keeper, but that will improve as his confidence grows in the team.

      He's 6ft 1 which is just below the average height if a PL centre back so not that small.

      6'1 !! Looks like he might have added an inch or 2 to his profile 😄

      1.86m so is 1cm taller than Carragher, can't recall Carragher struggling in the Prem ;-)

      BTW he's only 7 cm shorter than Virgil.


      I thought he had a very good game yesterday, he will form a good partnership with Fabinho for the rest of the season. Would be good to also bring in Nat or Davies as his partner as well, so that we can release Hendo back into midfield.

      Early days, but did ok. Composure seems good, which is a big thing. Actually looks quite a similar player to Phillips - a bit smoother looking in his movement, but maybe quite a similar type of CB.

      Bargain basement and plays like it.

      2 EPL starts and 2 goals directly attributable to him.

      I know it's early days but he looks way off this level.

      Slow, clumsy and bullied in the air.

      Yep. I'd rather have Nat at the moment to be honest actually.

      Got to remember only 20 but is rash but I think Phillips is as well surely Davies needs looking at 25 Yr Old plenty of experience  what have we to lose

      Imo Nat has always showed himself well on the pitch. Nat seems wise enough to know what he is and what he isn't. Klopp has to go with him now

      He's man of the match the game before last (against RB leipzig), and he's a young cb in foreign league so I think it will be fair to give him a little bit more time.

      His problem is hes in a side that needed a main centre half. Someone who could slot in straight away and play.

      We are not in a position to bring a cebtre half through his development. We dont have a midfield tbat covers for him or a recognised centre half he can  develop with.

      Coming here at this stage of our season just wasn't the right fit. If he keeps his place here then he might learn alongside Virgil but is he going to get games when the 5 injured CBs and midfielders who were playing there return?

      To me he's struggling with the pace of the game. He looked sound in the Leipzig game. Just said it in the match thread but going back to Brighton game, Philips and Davies should of been tried.

      Right now it's time we don't have. Personal choice right now try the two English lads at centre-back in league games and use Kabak with possibly Fab or Hendo in Champs League games.

      Agree the pace of Leipzig game suited him whereas yesterday and with the wind he buckled a bit . Wouldn't play him and Phillips together,  they both need a calming influence next to them Davies has to play against Sheff Utd but wouldn't be surprised to see Fab go back in there with either Kabak or Phillips
