“Decent enough point for Liverpool tonight and nice to see a couple of youngsters play,” Owen wrote on Sportlobster.com. “Still searching for that spark. Huge game for Brendan Rodgers against Norwich on Sunday.”
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers included a number of fringe players in his starting line-up as well as Maghull-born midfielder Jordan Rossiter.
Fellow 18-year-old Pedro Chirivella joined Rossiter in midfield following an early leg injury to defender Kolo Toure.
Midfielder Cameron Brannagan, 19, made a second-half appearance for Liverpool, while teenagers Daniel Cleary and Connor Randall remained on the bench as unused substitutes.
