Yasser Larouci rightly garnered attention for his first half performance against Tranmere Rovers as Liverpool ran out 6-0 winners at Prenton Park.
But there is another young left-back at the club who should be considered in the same vein – and that’s 19-year-old Adam Lewis.
The teenager played the second half of the game in Birkenhead, but wasn’t perceived in the same way as Larouci.
The Algerian showed flashes of a former life in which he was a winger, but Lewis was a more composed, traditional full-back on the night – like what we’ve grown accustomed to with Andy Robertson.
The Scot, like Trent Alexander-Arnold, is renowned for his ability to swing in a cross, and that’s the case with Lewis too who is also a threat from a dead ball.
The Scouser has been with the club since he was six-years-old, and is on the brink of breaking into the senior team after impressing at Tranmere.
Lewis found the back of the net once last season for the Liverpool U23s squad, and totted up a more impressive four assists. When used as a left-back and on the left side of midfield, Lewis has picked up a staggering 20 assists across 67 games.
If brought into the squad slowly and nurtured the right way, the 19-year-old could turn out to be the next Robbo for Jurgen Klopp whereas I see Larouci as a more offensive full-back.
