Molby - who spent 11 years at Anfield, winning two titles - wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: "Xherdan Shaqiri has started his Liverpool career in good form, but he is a bright footballer so it should come as no surprise".

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season was ended in midweek, and Klopp has dismissed the suggestion that exiting the League Cup allows his side to focus on other competitions.
