Taking a look at two young Liverpool players who could get their debuts before the summer
Liverpool still have plenty to play for this season, with huge matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund on the horizon.
However, the Reds’ 3-2 defeat against Southampton last time out means they are very unlikely to finish in the top four, meaning the Europa League is their last real chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.
Depending on how things go over the next few weeks, Liverpool’s Premier League campaign could mean a few younger players are given a run-out from the bench in the last couple of matches, and here we take a look at two Reds teenagers who could be closing in on their debuts:
Harry Wilson is a 19-year-old winger who is comfortable on either flank and who can also operate as a centre forward if required.
He spent time on loan at Crewe Alexandra earlier this season but he is now back at Anfield, featuring regularly for the under-21s.
Wilson made headlines when he became the youngest player ever to feature for Wales at just 16 years and 207 days and he has the talent to become a future Liverpool star.
Centre-back Tom Brewitt has played nine times for Liverpool’s under-21s this season and the 19-year-old has the raw talent to ultimately succeed at Anfield.
Given the likely defensive reshuffle at the club over the summer, Brewitt may struggle to make a significant impact any time soon, but before that happens a first-team debut is not beyond the realms of possibility if Klopp wants to see what he can do when stepping up.
