Confirmed: Liverpool line-up v FC Basel in the UEFA Youth League - Rossiter starts!

FC Basel

Here is the under-19 Liverpool side to face FC Basel in the UEFA Youth League this afternoon.

Liverpool under-19s: Fulton, Maguire, Hart, Cleary, Brewitt, Rossiter, Ojo, Brannagan, Sinclair, O'Hanlon, Kent

Subs: Phillips, Firth, Wilson, Canos, Chirivella, Marsh, Whelan

Liverpool’s under-19 side were one of the most impressive teams over the first round of UEFA Youth League matches.

The young Reds ran out 4-0 winners against Ludogorets to match the senior side’s winning start to European competition this season.

The under-21 and under-18 sides will provide the bulk of the players on show this afternoon and it’s a great chance for the players featuring to grab the attention of first team boss Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers has shown with players like Raheem Sterling that he’s happy to throw younger stars into the first team, developing them into more all around effective players.

Real Madrid also won their first game in this competition against FC Basel, which makes three points for the young Reds important as they look to match the Spanish side at the top of their group.
