Tyler Morton made his first start for Liverpool last in the UEFA Champions League, and the midfielder from Wallasey more than impressed the Anfield faithful.

The teenager started in midfield alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Thiago Alcantara. And it was the latter who was left wowed by Morton on his full debut for Liverpool.

The Spanish international, who scored one of the goals of the season in the second half with a striker that seemed to have defied physics, was asked about Morton post-match. And Thiago was happy with the youngster.

Indeed, with Liverpool eager to sign a midfielder, Morton could prove to be an in-house replacement for Georgino Wijnaldum. With Thiago seemingly giving his vote of confidence on the teenger.

The former Bayern Munich star told the club’s official website after the 2-0 win: “You know that he has this inner talent that makes him different with his age. 

Thiago added: “He has a long path, but the path will be easier for him because of his talent and also his intelligence – not just during the game, but watching it.”
