Liverpool fans react on Twitter as Ovie Ejaria make Premier League debut v Watford
By Will Butcher
Liverpool fans are delighted on Twitter after Jurgen Klopp handed highly-rated youngster Ovie Ejaria his Premier League debut.
The Merseyside giants secured an emphatic 6-1 rout of Premier League rivals Watford on Sunday afternoon, with five different players getting their names on the scoresheet.
A superb brace from Sadio Mane saw Liverpool well on their way to three points, while Emre Can, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Georginio Wijnaldum all helped deliver Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.
Liverpool’s number 53 even had a hand in his side’s last goal, supplying a perfect back heel in Watford’s penalty area for Firmino to set up Daniel Sturridge. His shot was saved, before Wijnaldum finished the rebound.
Now, fans are delighted to see their impressive young star make his domestic debut for Klopp’s side with what promises to be a successful career ahead of the teenage star.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder made his debut in the EFL Cup for Liverpool earlier this season against Derby, before starting in the 2-1 win against Tottenham last month.
Ejaria is expected to feature against Leeds in the quarter finals of the EFL Cup on November 29, and could play a part in Liverpool’s next fixtures against Southampton and Sunderland after the international break.
