Five under-21 players who could have an impact on Liverpool's season

The Premier League sides have all submitted their squads, and three new signings feature in our five to watch.

The Premier League squads for the season have all been submitted and confirmed, and in the Liverpool side there is a large contingent of players under the age of 21. Some of them are high profile and only arrived at the club this summer - whilst some are little known. You can access a full list of player selected in the Premier League squad here. In our list of five there may be a couple of obvious omissions, but here is a look at those who will be considered by manager Brendan Rodgers.

Here is at look at five:

Lazar Markovic

At £20 million in the summer, of course he is going to be used a lot by Brendan Rodgers. Markovic has so far made two Premier League appearances from the substitutes bench. He seems to link up well with his full-backs and isn't afraid of taking on his opponents. One can imagine him being used when Rodgers decides to go with a front three rather than the diamond formation.

Emre Can

The middle of the park is a heavily competitive part of the field, but with the Reds' ability to play a couple of formations very well, combined with Steven Gerrard's age and that the club may want to manage his game time, Can is likely to make several appearances for the side this season. A powerful man who may come across as a little rash, it could prove difficult for opponents to win a midfield battle against him.

Javier Manquillo

Manquillo has an opportunity to make himself the first-choice right-back at the club as things stand. Glen Johnson is out with a thigh injury and Jon Flanagan has been out of action since pre-season because of a knee problem. He has made two appearances so far against Southampton and Tottenham, and despite picking up a booking in each game, he did look pretty assured in the role. In a defence that is looking to tighten up following last season's leaky back line, he could prove to be part of the solution.

Jordan Rossiter

He probably won't see many first-team games, but it wouldn't too much of a surprise to see this midfielder in and around the first team for cup games. He seems to have an admirer in former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher and has impressed at under-21 level. If he gets his opportunity and takes it, he might be around the side more often than he initially thought.

Raheem Sterling

No surprises here, Sterling already seems to be a star - and he seems to be the England national side's big hope as well. He's scored twice already this season, and his pace, versatility, and end product causes huge problems for opposing defenders. It looks as though he could be Liverpool's key to success this season - and he's only 19!
