Jurgen Klopp shared words of praise for Harvey Elliott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who both took on new positions in pre-season friendlies.
The Reds are in the midst of their pre-season preparations and played two separate 30-minute friendlies against Wacker Innsbruck and Stuttgart – both matches ending 1-1.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been getting injuries recently, played as a false nine.
While Elliott played in central midfield and Klopp was more than satisfied with what he saw.
“I don’t think Harvey had ever played that position for us, but he looked good,”
“Ox you could see in the first few minutes immediately that it is an option, definitely. We will see how that goes on.
Liverpool’s head coach trialled new ideas by playing certain individuals in new positions. Apparently such positional change was quite productive.
