Liverpool's line-up for the first half of its second pre-season friendly against Greuther Fürth looked pretty much full-strength.
Number one goalkeeper Alisson Becker was back in goal after an injury-enforced absence against Karlsruher last week, with Ibrahima Konaté, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson in front of him.
Conor Bradley and Cody Gakpo are unlikely to figure routinely in the Reds' box midfield, but they were perhaps the best available options here with injuries and looming transfers restricting Jürgen Klopp's options. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alexis Mac Allister still provided plenty of star power in the middle.
The one name that really stuck out, then, was Ben Doak, the 17-year-old winger who notably got the nod in place of the team's biggest superstar Mohamed Salah.
Of course, Salah's position in the pecking order isn't remotely in question, but with his contract expiring in 2025, Liverpool does need to start thinking about back-up options at the very least. Therefore, it's intriguing that Klopp is blooding the Scotsman alongside his first-teamers.
Indeed, of all the youngsters who accompanied the senior squad to their training camp in Germany, it seems Doak is regarded as the most exciting, and that's why he made it into the first-half team.
The former Celtic man justified the faith of Klopp from the outset, driving inside and beating his man in increasingly trademark fashion after receiving a volleyed pass from Alexander-Arnold and then narrowly missing the target. He would also fire off another shot later in the period as he cut in from the right, but this time it was a comfortable save for the goalkeeper.
It was intriguing nonetheless to see a winger who's listed as right-footed (on Transfermarkt) playing on his 'stronger' side. Liverpool has become accustomed to an inverted option on that flank in the form of Salah, but Doak is more closely aligned with Manchester City academy graduate Phil Foden, a primary left-winger who's left-footed.
Doak was direct and fearless here but he also selflessly created a couple of chances for his teammates. There were cut-backs to Díaz and Jota in the penalty area that displayed good judgment, and a through ball to the Colombian that could have been an assist were it not ever-so-slightly overhit. Díaz knocked it around the onrushing goalkeeper but wasn't able to keep it in play.
The only real moment of frustration for the teenager came when he took the ball brilliantly on the half turn and led a dangerous attack, with Jota and Gakpo available either side, but couldn't release the ball in time and then lost it.
For Klopp, this will reinforce one area an otherwise glittering talent still has to work on.
"Ben Doak, still 17, but he is just a joy to watch!" he told the official club podcast this week. "With all the little struggles he has with losing the ball here and there, but the bravery, speed and the power is so cool to see."
This was another brief glimpse of Doak, but it's certainly one that will inflate the hype even further.
