Jurgen Klopp has reserved special words of praise for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Harvey Elliott, after the English duo excelled in unfamiliar positions upon their return to the Liverpool ranks.

Klopp watched on as the matches played out at Liverpool's Austria training camp, and monitoring closely as Oxlade-Chamberlain filled in at the false nine position usually taken by Roberto Firmino, and youngster Harvey Elliott moved into a more central midfield berth.

Speaking after the short matches, which each ended as a 1-1 draw, Klopp told LFCTV: 'I don't think Harvey had ever played that position for us, but he looked good.

The Frenchman put in a solid account on his first outing in the red shirt, and Klopp was pleased with what he saw,.

'First game with all the young boys, they have really showed up in training but it is different than when you play a first-team with all the kids together in the team.

Liverpool continue their pre-season preparation when they face one of Klopp's former teams Mainz on Friday, though the German boss has confirmed that influential defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are still unlikely to return.

Klopp added: 'They have looked really good in training and yesterday was the first day where they did very complex things, usually it is either offensive or defensive and stuff like this.
