Dominic Solanke has insisted that his lack of first-team action at Liverpool FC doesn’t compare to his frustration at Chelsea FC.

The Reds signed Solanke from defending Premier League champions Chelsea FC for a tribunal fee in a hectic summer for the striker.

Solanke helped the England Under-20 team to win the Under-20 World Cup and was named the player of the tournament last summer.

He made his senior debut in a goalless draw with Brazil at Wembley in September as Gareth Southgate rewarded the forward for his performances.

However, Solanke has struggled to command a regular spot in the Liverpool FC team given the prolific form of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

The 20-year-old has started three times and made 14 substitute appearances in the Premier League, while he has made one appearance from the bench in the Champions League.

Solanke made one appearance for Chelsea FC during his 13 years at the club as a youth player to a senior squad member.

But the Liverpool FC summer signing is happy with his decision to quit Chelsea FC and is adamant he has improved as a player at the Reds.

“It’s always frustrating when not playing but I’m enjoying it at Liverpool. You can say it’s different (to Chelsea),” Solanke is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

“Being at Liverpool there’s a lot of competition and there are going to be tough times but coming to England is always another time to express yourself.

“There are crazy players at Liverpool, especially in my position, and I’ve definitely learned a lot.

“You always have to take the positives and we are doing so well at the moment. The front players have been phenomenal, its a good lesson.

“Mo is on fire, I’m so happy for him, and he is unstoppable and it’s helping us a lot.”

Liverpool FC will take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
