Jurgen Klopp runs the rule over Liverpool signing’s debut

Jurgen Klopp says he was pleased with Steven Caulker's Liverpool debut

Jurgen Klopp praised Steven Caulker’s impact after the new signing came on for the final minutes of Liverpool’s 3-3 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The England international was an 88th-minute substitute for Adam Lallana at Anfield before Joe Allen scored a dramatic equaliser against the Gunners.

Caulker moved to the Merseyside outfit on loan on Tuesday afternoon after Liverpool agreed a deal with Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season.

Speaking at his post-match media conference at Anfield on Wednesday night, Klopp said: “I thought it was a good idea, but after the goal he tried to stay as a striker and we had to shout really loudly to change our tactics!

“He won three or four headers, important headers for us, and so it was a good change and for him, a good debut.”

Roberto Firmino scored two goals to put Liverpool into the lead twice in the first half before Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud levelled for the visitors to leave the match all square at the interval.

The France striker appeared to have scored a 55th-minute winner but Jurgen Klopp brought on Joe Allen as a late substitute and the Welsh midfielder fired a 90th-minute winner past Petr Cech.
