Breaking News ! It has taken only a matter of days for Liverpool's training ground move to make a positive difference. The Reds officially switched last Tuesday to their new £50 million facility, which is on the same site as the Academy in Kirkby. As well as the first team, the club's under-23 squad have also decamped into the training centre, ensuring greater communication between the two. And that was evident on Saturday afternoon when Jurgen Klopp and members of his coaching staff took a break from preparing for Sunday's visit of leaders Leicester City to watch the first half of the goalless home Premier League 2 clash against Southampton. "The relationship between the first team and Academy has always been really good," says U23s coach Barry Lewtas, when asked about Klopp's attendance. "Obviously we are in the same building now and I think it makes life a little bit easier for him to come down and watch.

Obviously, it is great for me that they come and watch but it gives the biggest lift to the players." Lewtas had a quick chat with Klopp as the teams left the pitch for half-time, and reveals: "I asked him just for any advice. If you have got the first-team manager there and you’ve got a half-time chat coming up..." While the scoreless stalemate was enough to put Liverpool top of Premier League 2 on goal difference, it came at a cost with Paul Glatzel and Joe Hardy both suffering injuries. Glatzel was forced off at half-time with an ankle complaint and left Kirkby on crutches, while Hardy had scans on a foot problem having been caught by a heavy challenge from Southampton's Alexandre Jankewitz moments after coming on as a substitute.

"But we're talking about two players who over the last few months have had real bad luck, so it makes it a little bit harder. "Joe's is a sore one and we will have to see how it looks. He is in bits. He has had quite a bad problem with his foot and we were just easing him back. "The challenge on Joe is at least a second yellow.

. Hopefully it's that just he is a little bit sore and the X-rays come back and he is good. "The positive is that Paul managed to finish the half, but he has a badly swollen ankle after he rolled it."

Key to Liverpool's clean sheet were the performances of 17-year-old Northern Irish right-back Conor Bradley and 18-year-old Welsh left-back Owen Beck, whose great uncle is Liverpool record goalscorer Ian Rush. "Conor has gone under the radar," adds Lewtas. "He has played most games, with Ki-Jana (Hoever) going and Neco (Williams) being with the first team. "Conor is a 17-year-old boy who is probably still a youth team player, but the more experience he has got against the type of opposition he has come up against, he has grown quite quickly. "Owen on the other side has really stepped up this season. He has probably been our most consistent performer."
