Jurgen Klopp appears to have finally solved Liverpool problem as transfer plan justified

Ibrahima Konate can be the key to fix Liverpool’s defensive problems after the Frenchman was handed his Premier League debut in the 3-0 win against Crystal Palace at Anfield. The 22-year-old joined the club at the start of the summer from RB Leipzig in a move worth £36million, but the defender had been forced to wait for his first minutes in a Liverpool shirt.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring shortly before the interval, before Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita made sure of the win late in the second half.

Konate’s was one of six changes for Jurgen Klopp’s side – including Trent Alexander-Arnold – who missed out entirely though illness.

The spotlight continues to be on Liverpool when record signing Virgil van Dijk is not playing, but fans were pleased to see the Dutch defender return to the starting line-up to partner the debutant.
