Leeds United's Charlie Taylor starred against Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Leeds United impressed at Anfield despite losing 2-0 to Liverpool on Tuesday evening – and one player particularly caught the eye of Reds fans.

The Whites beat Norwich City in the previous round to book their trip to Anfield, with Liverpool seeing off Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur to reach the quarter-finals.

Despite a resolute performance, Leeds ended up losing 2-0 to the Premier League title challengers, as Divock Origi and Ben Woodburn struck in the second half to book Liverpool's ticket for the semi-finals.

Leeds turned in a great performance, and could have sprung a major shock on the Reds given that Hadi Sacko and Kemar Roofe both went close to scoring.

Garry Monk will have been delighted with all of his players, but one Leeds ace particularly impressed, with left Charlie Taylor turning in a man of the match performance.

Taylor, 23, kept Liverpool's flying forward Sadio Mane quiet, was committed in the tackle and offered a threat going forward, as the Leeds star again underlined his Premier League credentials.

Taylor is out of contract at the end of the season, meaning Premier League clubs will be hoping to raid Leeds and sign the left back in January – and Liverpool fans think that Jurgen Klopp should be looking to move for Taylor in the new year.

TEAMtalk reported over the summer that Liverpool were keen to land Taylor to boost their options at left back, with Alberto Moreno something of a misfit under Klopp, and midfielder James Milner – another Leeds academy product – being converted to play as a makeshift left back.

After his performance against Liverpool tough, many Reds fans took to Twitter to suggest that Taylor is the left back that Klopp needs, claiming that he's already better than the aforementioned Moreno.

Others believe that Klopp will make a January move for Taylor after his performance on Tuesday, with one fan saying that, if Liverpool aren't looking at the Leeds ace, then they certainly should be.
