Liverpool will be desperate to ensure consistency in Europe and in the Premier League, with the chance to secure two pieces of silverware in the current campaign.
The Reds haven’t necessarily been at their best in recent times, despite completely dominating Bournemouth last time out, as they’ve dropped a number of valuable points.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Reds are set to secure a player agreement, as according to The Sun on Sunday (17/02; page 61) (via HITC), Adam Lewis has agreed a new four-year deal at Anfield.
It’s believed that is set to be promoted to become Andy Robertson’s understudy on Merseyside from next season.
Indeed, the youngster was included in the squad that Jurgen Klopp took to Marbella this month, so it’s clear to see that the German rates him very highly.
Of course, after witnessing Trent Alexander-Arnold’s rise to stardom on the right-hand side of the defence for Liverpool, there’s no reason as to why Smith can’t enjoy similar development.
Adam Lewis is a very exciting prospect who will no doubt go on to enjoy a very successful career at Anfield, with next season looking like his breakthrough.
The Reds have been short on numbers at left-back in the current campaign, so they’ll be pleased to have cover for Andy Robertson in case he suffers an injury.
