The Reds have a wealth of young talent, as this team proves…
It’s been Liverpool’s young players that have been making the headlines this week, with a whole host of up and coming stars going out on loan to teams up and down the football league pyramid.
They’ve joined the likes of Jerome Sinclair, Sheyi Ojo, and the now returned Jordon Ibe in making the move this season, and no doubt Brendan Rodgers is hoping that a few more gems will emerge from the process.
The Reds are certainly blessed with a whole host of exciting young players. In the list below we’ve put together a Liverpool dream team, made up only of current Reds players who have impressed us this season.
All of them are aged 21 or under…
GK) Danny Ward (21)
The Welshman has been included on the bench on multiple occasions so far this season, providing back-up for Simon Mignolet in the absence of the injured Brad Jones. Currently on loan at Morecambe.
CB) Andre Wisdom (21)
The powerful defender has been enjoying an excellent season on loan at Premier League side West Bromwich Albion, for whom he’s made 24 appearances. This follows on from impressing with Derby County last term.
CB) Emre Can (21)
Can has been in superb form so far this season, and has firmly established himself as a member of our defensive three alongside Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho. The German has also become a big fan favourite.
CB) Lloyd Jones (19)
The youngster has been on loan at both Cheltenham Town and Accrington Stanley so far this season, making nine appearances in total for the League Two duo. An England youth team international to boot.
