Jurgen Klopp assesses Ibrahima Konate’s Liverpool debut
Liverpool hammer Crystal Palace
Liverpool would face off with Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash on Saturday.
The Reds headed into the tie looking to continue their fine unbeaten start to the season.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, were no doubt full of confidence after smashing Tottenham 3-0 the weekend prior.
However, the Eagles would this time find themselves on the receiving end of the 3-0 drubbing, with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita all finding the net on Saturday.

Klopp offers Konate debut verdict
Ibrahima Konate would be handed his debut for the Reds vs Palace as well, following his move from RB Leipzig over the summer.
Konate started the tie and completed the full 90 minutes, of course keeping a clean sheet in the process.
And now, Jurgen Klopp has been speaking about the central defender. When giving his assessment of Konate’s debut after the match, the German stated:
“Top. It is something you dream of and want desperately but when it is coming it is different. “You want the team to watch the games and see what we do. We need to have experience from what we see. And he did really well.
“So much potential. He will get better.
“The Premier League teaches you harsh lessons. Today, against Benteke and Edouard and Zaha, there were situations where it is new for him. Step by step.”
