Dominic Solanke has claimed he was “very unlucky” not to register his first Liverpool goal against West Bromwich Albion despite admitting the disallowed effort did strike his arm.

The young striker’s 82nd-minute celebrations were cut short against Alan Pardew’s team when the referee Paul Tierney and assistant Constantine Hatzidakis penalised a handball offence. Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, said he was unsure Solanke had used both his chest and arm to convert Joe Gomez’s cross after watching several replays.

“It was another moment where we had no luck,” said Klopp, who maintains Everton were wrongly awarded a late penalty in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
Solanke, however, confirmed: “It went on to my chest, I tried to chest it in and it has clipped my arm. The referee disallowed it but it’s very unlucky. I thought he had given it. I was celebrating. I don’t know what changed his mind but he did. I thought I’d won it. It’s not nice when you are celebrating and it gets disallowed.”
Despite the frustration Jack Eichel Womens Jersey of another home draw and the wait for his first Liverpool goal, Solanke says he has been encouraged by his contribution and the feedback from Klopp since arriving from Chelsea in the summer. The 20-year-old made his first Premier League start at Anfield in the Merseyside derby and has made 14 appearances for Klopp’s side so far, vindicating his decision to leave Stamford Bridge in search of more regular first-team football.
Solanke said: “The manager has made me feel welcome, he has showed a lot of faith in me and played me in some important games. He always gives me feedback and tells me if he thinks I should be doing something better, which you want from a manager. He does it game by game. If I’m playing and he sees things I can do better or I’m doing well he will always tell me. It is criticism and praise, it helps me a lot.
“I’m happy Jussi Jokinen Womens Jersey here. It’s a great club, a great team and we’ve been doing well. We have to keep on trying to win games. At Liverpool there are a lot of young players, it’s a young squad and the manager has a lot of faith in the young players so it’s a good place to be.”
Liverpool are unbeaten in 11 matches going into the game at Bournemouth on Sunday but, after scoring 12 goals in two games before the derby, have seen momentum stalled by successive home draws against Everton and West Brom. Klopp has rotated more than any other Premier League manager this season in an attempt to protect his players’ fitness and avoid a repeat of last winter’s slump. His goalkeeper, Loris Karius, maintains rotation has not affected Liverpool’s rhythm.
“If you look at the starting XI [against West Bromwich] that is pretty much a starting XI that has played together before,” the German keeper said. “It is not John Jerry Womens Jersey as if there are six new, young players coming in – we are all professionals and have played a bunch of games so there is no excuse. The manager picks the strongest team and the fittest one and I think it was a strong team.
“We have dropped points but we still believe in our ability. We did when we played well and we do when we drop points. It is a long season and there are so many games and so many points to get so I feel other teams will drop points. We saw it with Buddy Hield Youth jersey Tottenham recently and the only team flying completely is [Manchester] City. I am still confident in us. We just have to focus on the next one and get the points there.”
Karius made only his second start of the league season on Wednesday, with Simon Mignolet nursing a swollen ankle. Despite enduring a troubled afternoon at Bournemouth last season, the 24-year-old is hopeful of retaining his place against Eddie Howe’s team after impressing at Anfield. Mignolet, however, expects to return to the side on Sunday.
