Klopp calls up 'outstanding' 19-year-old to Liverpool training pre-Wolves, he just 'glides with the ball'
Liverpool will go into their final Premier League match of 2021-22 with a chance of winning a second title in three seasons.
The Reds appeared out of contention back in January, sitting 14 points adrift of table-topping Manchester City.
However, by April, Liverpool were changing places with City at the summit, and remain just one point behind them.
On Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s charges host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.
The visitors can’t finish higher than eighth in the table and have nothing to play for.
Nonetheless, they’ll be a tricky proposition in a high-stakes game Liverpool will be desperate to win.
On Friday, Liverpool shared photos of Klopp and his players in training at Kirkby.
Several youngsters featured in the session, including highly-rated full-back Owen Beck.
The 19-year-old featured in several pictures, including one where he’s vying with Thiago Alcantara for the ball.
Beck has enjoyed a fruitful season at Liverpool, making his senior debut for the club.
The Welshman came off the bench against Preston in the Carabao Cup fourth round.
He also came on for 10 minutes against Leicester in the fifth round of the same competition.
Beck also made his debut for Wales Under-21s this season and got his first goal for them in November.
Against Gibraltar, he collected the ball out on the touchline on the left flank.
Beck went on to dart into the box before finding the bottom corner after playing a one-two.
The youngster – whose great-uncle is Liverpool legend Ian Rush – earned praise from Dragons U21 boss Paul Bodin.
“There’s no doubt in the coming months, coming years for sure, that Owen will be around their first-team and he’ll play in Liverpool’s team I’m sure,” he told BBC Sport a few days after the game.
“He’s an outstanding young talent, left-footed. He glides with the ball, as well as being a very good defender.
“His goal that he scored for us the other evening, the first goal to get us going, was typical of Owen really.”
