Confirmed Liverpool XI & reaction as Reds start 4 teenagers vs Shrewsbury

Liverpool name four teenagers vs Shrewsbury today in a mix-and-match lineup at Anfield. The Reds still suffer from absences.

Liverpool play their first game in a week today, having suffered plenty of absences over the last little while. They’ll still deal with several against Shrewsbury, in fact, with confirmation that Trent Alexander-Arnold will be out with Covid-19.

They’ve dealt with that – and other missing players – by calling up plenty of youth players for this one. Let’s see what Liverpool have gone for.

Confirmed Liverpool XI vs Shrewsbury Town

Caoimhin Kelleher

Conor Bradley

Ibrahima Konate

Virgil van Dijk

Andy Robertson

Fabinho

Tyler Morton

Elijah Dixon-Bonner

Kaide Gordon

Curtis Jones

Max Woltman

Four teenagers make the starting XI here, then, with one of the youngest forward lines we remember seeing. Eyes will be on Kaide Gordon, of course – one of the brightest young talents going right now.

The defence is incredibly strong in comparison, with Bradley being a relatively experienced teenager by now. Fabinho sits in front of them, too, which should give the forward a sensational base to play from here.

There’s a very young bench here, also. Again, Liverpool will hope these attackers have enough about them to break down a senior side in Shrewsbury. Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino are both available if the Reds need them, however.

Some real excitement for this one, then. There’s disappointment that Mateusz Musialowski isn’t player – which we share – but there’s a lot to like about the XI.

Liverpool will show off some fantastic young players, while some like Morton gets to play a slightly more advanced role with Fabinho sitting. That should benefit him, as should Jones having responsibility up top.

This should be good, then – hopefully there’s a lot to shout about come full-time.
