Jurgen Klopp hailed the return of Nathaniel Clyne to first-team action in Liverpool FC’s goalless draw with Everton on Saturday.

The England international made his first Premier League start of the 2017-18 season in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.

Clyne hasn’t featured for the Reds since a pre-season friendly at Tranmere Rovers due to a series of niggling injury problems.

He required an operation on his back back in November to extend his spell on sidelines until March.

Clyne has fallen down the pecking order due to the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the Liverpool FC team.

Indeed, Alexander-Arnold earned rave reviews for his performance in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 won over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.

However, Klopp started Clyne for the Merseyside derby on Saturday in order to give Alexander-Arnold a break.

The 27-year-old completed 90 minutes of Liverpool FC’s stalemate at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Speaking at his post-match media conference at Goodison Park following the stalemate, Klopp said:

“It’s good to have Nathaniel back. After nine months, playing that game just shows his natural quality in that position.”

Liverpool FC will make the trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League last-eight clash on Tuesday.
