Reds fans here in the Tavern are hopeful that Jurgen Klopp can include more youth products into his plans, after seeing the progression of Joe Gomez. Life at Anfield has been great in recent times for Liverpool fans, as they continue to extend their unbeaten run.
Jurgen Klopp has always had the ability to take players games to the next level, after turning Robert Lewandowski, Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels and Shinji Kagawa from unproven quality, to stars of the footballing world.
Now in his current role at Liverpool, he’s tried to incorporate this sort of style into some of their youngsters, having already seen Joe Gomez become the breakthrough act of 2017, with a first England call-up performance against Germany resulting in fans calling for him to be on the plane to Russia.
So, with one of the best managers for opportunity and development, Reds youth-prospects have been desperate for a chance to shine.
Klopp has never been shy about chopping and changing his side with 6 changes having been made for the Merseyside Derby draw at the weekend. So, now with tonight’s opponents being relegation scrappers West Bromwich Albion, this gives the German an extra incentive to give some of the youth-players a shot at some action in the first-team.
Therefore, with the gaffer not afraid to give youth a chance, here’s a look at TWO young stars who may make an appearance tonight.
