Jürgen Klopp has praised Dominic Solanke’s contribution for Liverpool this season and is certain the young striker will become a regular goalscorer for the club.
Solanke is yet to find the net for the Reds following his summer move from Chelsea, but has only made four starts across all competitions during what is his first campaign as a senior squad member.
The 20-year-old completed 90 minutes in the Premier League for the first time in the dramatic 2-1 victory at Burnley on New Year’s Day and Klopp feels the forward, who made his senior England debut in November, is developing well.
“Each game for Dom is very important,” the boss said at his press conference to preview Friday’s FA Cup third-round clash with Everton.
“He was really busy in that game [against Burnley]. I’m not 100 per cent sure - we had not a lot of numbers after the game - but I think he had [ran] 12.5 kilometres or so, so that’s pretty rare for a striker, that’s quite lively [and] helped us a lot in that game.
“He will score, no doubt about that, in the future, no doubt, not a shadow of a doubt about that, and in this moment he gets experience, that’s how it is.
“So for a player like Dom, for him it’s perfect if he can play as much as possible, that’s really important.”
