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

Anfield Pitch

Here is the Liverpool team to play FC Basel in the UEFA Youth League this afternoon.

Liverpool under-19s: Fulton, Whelan, Hart, Cleary, Maguire, Rossiter, Canos, Chirivella, Sinclair, Kent, Ojo

Liverpool must beat FC Basel this afternoon and hope that Real Madrid slip up against Ludogorets in order to make it through to the next round of the UEFA Youth League.

The young Reds have been a little inconsistent so far this season, but this is a great opportunity for them to show they can play maturely in a high pressure situation, guiding the club to an advanced position.

It’s also a good chance for the youngsters on display to show first team manager Brendan Rodgers what they’re made of, as they look to potentially break into the senior ranks over the second half of the season.

Liverpool’s strength in the tournament this season has been their attack, 13 goals scored, which is the same as Real Madrid although they have conceded two more than the Spanish team.
