Jurgen Klopp is not afraid to give youngsters a chance in the first team

Liverpool's academy has produced some top players over the past decade and they continue to have one of the best youth setups in the country today. There are some bright young talents in their ranks who are destined for a big future at the club.

#1 Trent Alexander-Arnold

The 19 year-old has already broken into the first-team at Liverpool and is being tipped for a bright future at the club. He made his senior debut aged 18 in a League Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur in October 2016. He can play as either a right or left-back and will come in handy for Liverpool in the future.

#2 Ben Woodburn

The youngster is another who has already gained plenty of game time at Liverpool so far. He made his debut when he was just 17, which made him the third youngest Liverpool debutant of all time. He is now also a senior Wales international and has 6 international caps despite still being 18.

#3 Harry Wilson

Like Woodburn, Harry Wilson is also a Wales international. He is currently on loan at Championship side Hull City and has impressed for the Tigers. He has established himself as one of Hull's best players and his form will not go unnoticed by Liverpool. He could make a breakthrough into their first-team next season.

#4 Rhian Brewster

This is certainly a name for Liverpool fans to keep a keen eye on. The 17-year-old striker helped England win the U17 World Cup in 2017 and is tipped for a big future at Anfield. Unfortunately, Brewster has suffered a serious injury, but Liverpool fans will be hoping that it will not be long before he starts knocking on the door of the first team.

#5 Tony Gallacher

Liverpool swooped to sign the promising Scottish left-back in January from Falkirk. He had broken into the Falkirk first-team at the age of 17 and the Reds beat Manchester United and Stoke City in the race to sign him. He is another who could be in Jurgen Klopp's plans in the long-term.

The verdict

The future at Liverpool is bright and the five players mentioned are all potentially going to be big players for the Reds in the future. It is good to see Premier League academies still so strong. It is also refreshing that clubs like Liverpool are ready to give youngsters a chance in the first team.
