Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has a top talent who's been compared to Steven Gerrard - TBR View
Liverpool are looking back to their best this season following their difficult 2020-21 campaign.
The Reds sit joint-top of the Premier League table, top of their Champions League group, and are in the League Cup last 16.
Liverpool also have some top talents coming through their ranks, some of whom got game time on Tuesday night.
Jurgen Klopp handed starts to attacking prodigy Kaide Gordon and right-back Conor Bradley against Norwich.
Meanwhile, Tyler Morton and James Balagizi made the bench, and the former made his debut, replacing Naby Keita at half-time.
The 18-year-old did superbly too, slotting seamlessly into defensive midfield and helping Liverpool take back control in the middle of the park.
Morton can also play in central midfield, attacking midfield and on the right wing, and his versatility could be key for Klopp in future.
The Wirral-born talent joined the Liverpool academy aged seven and made his Under-23s debut last season.
Now, Morton has made his senior debut, doing very well against a fellow Premier League side, and will no doubt give Klopp food for thought.
Liverpool fans are certainly excited to see how Morton will progress this season and beyond – here’s who they’ve compared him to:
I knew Kaide Gordon's a top prospect but my god Tyler Morton was exceptional. So calm and composed. Gave me a Fabinho vibe. Our academy is producing such great talents.— Saad 🇧🇩 (@Shadab_LFC) September 22, 2021
What an impact Morton had when he came on controlled the midfield and dictated our play could be the one to fill Fabinho shoes when he leaves 💪🏻💪🏻— Darren Mountain (@DJDAZZA84) September 22, 2021
