Takumi Minamino debuts for Liverpool in FA Cup

Takumi Minamino has debuted for Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup at Anfield. Liverpool won the game 1-0 over Everton with the 24-year-old Japan international impressing in his mid-field role.

Minamino has joined Liverpool from Red Bull Salzburg in the January transfer window for £7.25m after playing against the Premier League team in a Champions League match and catching the eye of Jurgen Klopp.

When asked about his new Japanese player after the game Klopp said ""Minamino was super, outstanding, exactly the player we wanted. It was his first game in a team that he doesn't know, he had two sessions with us but showed an understanding of our game and his football skills and attitude were outstanding."
