Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may be getting a headache as he tries to determine whether Sheyi Ojo, Harry Wilson or Ryan Kent can make a difference to his first-team next season.
The Reds beat Tranmere Rovers 3-2 at Prenton Park on Wednesday with each youngster being afforded some game time by the German; 45 minutes each to be precise.
Goals from Adam Lallana, Rafael Camacho and Ojo were enough to hand Liverpool the victory, and the latter really staked his claim to be involved with the first-team next term.
With Kent and Wilson having been amongst the goals against Chester in the previous match, Klopp really does now have a headache, with each Liverpool youngster desperate for a break.
The expectation before a ball was kicked in pre-season was for all three to be loaned out to get them some more game time, but they have all started well and want to be playing in the Premier League next season.
At this stage, Wilson - who has just been handed a new deal by the club - looks particularly hungry for a chance, and Kent has glimmers of Philippe Coutinho-esque quality.
Ojo was very lively against Tranmere, and his sheer speed alone could see him take to Premier League life very easily if given the chance.
With the Guardian claiming Liverpool are in talks with Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri, one gets the feeling that Klopp may only have room for one of these promising youngsters in his squad in 2018/19.
Perhaps Wilson is the man currently just edging the other two, but the German cannot be second guessed.
