Who is Liverpool youngster Ki-Jana Hoever?

Who is Liverpool youngster Ki-Jana Hoever?

The former Ajax prospect has trained with Klopp's senior squad this past week and could make his FA Cup squad for their tie with Wolves. For the record they've defeated Chelsea (home) and Spurs (away), and held Arsenal, Man City and Man United to draws. "We don't let one defeat ruin our season".

The performance that made everyone stand up and take notice came just four days after the Villarreal humbling, though, came against Everton U23s in Premier League 2, as he stood head and shoulders above everyone else in a 1-0 win for Liverpool.

Liverpool were in a very similar situation back in the 2013-14 season, when they were well clear of Manchester city at an advanced stage in the title race, and yet failed to win it.

The Reds have played 11 games since November 24, nine of those in the Premier League, but Klopp is expected to name a fairly-strong starting lineup in the West Midlands. Here we give you the lowdown on the latest Liverpool protege to get his chance.

Will Liverpool win the Premier League?

The centre-back was forced from the field after just six minutes of the third-round encounter at Molineux, with the Reds needing to call upon 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever to replace him.

"Adam is a player who always wants to, he'd play four games a day if he could".

If Hoever did play for the first-team this week and continue his development in a similar fashion to that of Alexander-Arnold, it would prove a huge coup for Liverpool over their Premier League rivals.

"Don't get me wrong, I still love to watch the way City play, but the way Klopp makes Liverpool play is absolutely fantastic". Could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes.

When video emerged of Jurgen Klopp ringing in the new year by breaking out some dubious dance moves at a party earlier this week, it was jokingly suggested the Liverpool boss was already preparing for his club's title celebrations. Welcome to our Monday night football blog. It's so good and I am really looking forward to our common future because see if you see it every day, wow, there is so much to come and so much influence he can have on each game, so that's all good.
