Some Liverpool fans have been left wondering why Ki-Jana Hoever was allowed to leave the club to join Wolves.

The Dutchman pitched up at Molineux in the summer, at the same time Diogo Jota headed to Anfield.

It’s been a slow start so far, with Hoever only just making his first Premier League start at the end of 2020 against Manchester United.

He put in a brilliant performance against the Red Devils, and was somewhat unlucky to lose his place in the starting XI against Brighton on Saturday.

He certainly showed that he is ready for minutes in the Premier League, and Semedo will have to be at the top of his game to keep the youngster at bay.

Hoever’s name was all over Twitter once again last night, despite Wolves not even being in action.

It led some to question the sale of Hoever, who might well have provided the competition he perhaps needs right now:
