Liverpool recorded another impressive win over the weekend, showing great courage to come back from 1-0 down to finish comfortable victors at 3-1.

Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson, and Havey Elliot all impressed at the Molineux – especially Salah who created the conditions for all three goals.

However, it was debutant Jarell Quansah who captain Andy Roberston reserved special praise for.

In light of Virgil van Dijk’s suspension and Ibrahima Konate’s injury, young Quansah was called to fill the gaping hole left by the two senior defenders – and he passed the test with flying colors.

In the first half especially, the 20-year-old academy graduate was on of Liverpool’s best players.

Of Quansah’s full debut, Roberston said to liverpoolfc.com:

“Excellent from the big man,” said stand-in captain Andy Robertson of Quansah’s day.

“I don’t think many of us helped him in the first half, which, when you’ve got experienced players around, you probably look for help.

“We tried to protect him but as a collective unit we weren’t as good.”

“But he was very assured, done his defending very well, and then on the ball he was calm.”

“He has got a bright future ahead of him but the here and now is pretty good as well and for him to step in and to put in that performance, particularly in the second half, then fair play for his first start.”

It was certainly a good performance by Quansah, and he must be hoping his performance at the Molineux will give him a starting berth against LASK in the Europa League this Thursday.
