“The question is it doesn't matter where he plays, he plays good. It doesn't matter. What is important is to understand the game… sometimes we need him right, left. It doesn't matter.

“Phil in dropped positions is maybe more dangerous because he is so young, but he has the quality to play in the final third."

The Spanish tactician added: “

He can play striker, false nine, winger right and left. In the last games he has many chances and in front of keeper didn't take right decisions because he is young but I am more than pleased with the performances he has given.

“I like him as a player. He gives us things we need at a times. He has quality to play this role. At Anfield he played as a winger and was our important player.

“He is a midfield player with a lot of sense for goals, the only thing for Phil is to be calm on and off the pitch, because he is still young.”
