Brad Smith put in a top class performance for Liverpool v Sion.

Liverpool rounded off their Europa League group stage fixtures with a drab 0-0 draw against Swiss side Sion.

With the Reds already qualified, and Sion only needing a draw to progress to the knockout stages, it was always going to be a damp squib, and the result lived up to the expectations.

There were no real chances of note, and Jurgen Klopp will be pleased that he managed to field a fairly changed line up and get to the end of the tie with no injuries. There was a starting appearance for Jordan Henderson in midfield following his return from injury, whilst Kolo Toure got a start in the heart of the defence.

However, the boldest inclusion was that of Brad Smith, the Australian 21-year-old left-back who is starting to have an impact in the first-team, and made his full debut v Sion.

He has made three appearances in total for the Reds now, with two of them coming since the appointment of Klopp as head coach.

He put in a solid performance, winning four tackles and completing five clearances, whilst also having a positive impact in the attacking third; he completed two dribbles and played one key pass.

It was a performance which showed the youngster’s potential, and following the game, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to express their feelings on Smith’s performance.
