First team opportunities for a number of Liverpool’s youngsters have coincided with the excitement being generated by the success of our senior players in making this such an enjoyable season to watch.
Liverpool’s U23s captain Harry Wilson is expected to be the latest youth star to make his first team debut when the Reds come up against Plymouth in Wednesday night’s FA Cup third round replay.
The Liverpool Echo’s James Pearce reported: “The 19-year-old winger was left out of the Reds’ under-23s line up to face Manchester United at Anfield on Monday night after being called up to Melwood to train with Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad.”
Such an opportunity would mark a long awaited call up for Wilson having seen fellow teenagers Ben Woodburn, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ovie Ejaria feature under Klopp on more than one occasion this season.
The Welshman has scored 19 goals and made nine assists so far in this campaign with Reds fans requesting his introduction to first team football for some time now.
Wilson has managed to put an injury-plagued season behind him by emerging as both a prominent and influential figure in Liverpool’s youth team.
His patience and attitude alone makes him more than deserving of this kind of opportunity.
