Mateusz Musialowski appears set for Liverpool debut vs Preston North End

Mateusz Musialowski looks set for a Liverpool debut against Preston North End. Reds are reacting with excitement.

Liverpool Under 23s are in action tonight and there’s a very notable teamsheet. Notable in absences, certainly, as the Reds’ senior team prepare to face Preston North End on Wednesday evening.

Kaide Gordon doesn’t make the squad, for instance, suggesting he’s playing Preston. That won’t come as a shock to many. Tyler Morton, who also made his debut in the previous EFL Cup round, is also absent from the Under 23s.

James Balagizi isn’t there, either, and that means he could be in line for a debut this week. One other missing name? Mateusz Musialowski. That one has people very excited.

Musialowski set for debut?

Musialowski arrived at Liverpool a year ago and hit the ground running. By the end of the campaign, the Pole was comfortably one of the most exciting prospects at the club.

But that’s always the case when you’re scoring goals like this:

Musialowski’s performances for the Under 18s earned him a spot with the Under 23s this season. Again, he’s playing very well and generating excitement among fans (and us).

The 18-year-old typically plays on the left-wing and has a wonderful knack for dribbling and finding the net. If Gordon is the future on the right, Musialowski can be his counterpart on the opposite side.

But this is all just hope at the moment. We need to see what Musialowski can do at senior level before getting truly excited.

Fortunately, we might not have to wait all that long. If he’s not involved at Under 23 level this week, we’ve got to believe there’s a spot for him against Preston on Wednesday.

The reaction

To the surprise of no one, fans are reacting well on Twitter to suggestions that Musialowski is destined for the first-team.

This could be one to remember, then. Is Musialowski a future superstar? We just don’t know right now. Wednesday might give us our first real hint, however.
