Experience is a key factor for success in football, but sometimes, teams are relying on youngsters and don’t regret. Liverpool are one of the clubs, who have always allowed young players to play with the first team and are currently have some of the best prospects.
Here are top 5 Liverpool youngsters of 2019/20 season.
Jones, 19, is regarded as next Steven Gerrard for Liverpool. The player was included in Liverpool squad during two pre-season tours, however, struggled for first-team action. He has heavy style and seems perfect for Liverpool's high-intensity. He played for Liverpool in the FA Cup fourth round against Everton and then against Shrewsbury. He has already played nine games for Liverpool's first-team, has scored two goals and has created an assist.
Elliott joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer. He is 17-year-old and already showed a mercurial and precocious talent. It is unlikely that he will find much playing time because he needs to fight for the place with Mohamed Salah. Elliott has made seven senior appearances for the Reds this season.
Williams could be a solution for Liverpool if they will need reinforcements in the right-back. The Wales U19 international is an energetic, attack-minded and capable of filling in for Trent Alexander-Arnold. Williams has impressed in both FA and Carabao Cup fixtures and is surely in line to become Liverpool’s number 2 at right-back next term. He has made five senior appearances for Liverpool and has created three assists.
Phillips is not as younger as the previous ones, as he is already 22, but he has the potential to become a top-class centre back. Phillips is yet to make a Premier League appearance for Liverpool and is currently out on loan at Stuttgart.
Brewster scored a hat-trick against Brazil for the England U17 squad in the World Cup. Expectations for him has been high, however, his journey was halted, first through injury to his ankle and then his knee. Brewster lost nearly two years of development and finds himself behind Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi. He is currently on loan at Swansea City.
