Latest Liverpool News Today from Newsnow Liverpool
Liverpool’s youngster, Bobby Clark, may make an unexpected start in tomorrow’s showdown against Leicester City.
The stage is set at Anfield for the Reds as they prepare to face Leicester in the third round of this year’s Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
With an impressive start to the season and a significant encounter looming against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp is planning extensive rotations within his squad. The Liverpool ECHO has identified Bobby Clark as a potential choice for the starting lineup.
They suggest that the upcoming clash with Spurs on Sunday could lead Klopp to field a slightly ‘weaker’ side than usual, potentially offering an opportunity for young talents like Clark.
However, it’s not just Clark who could see more playing time. The ECHO also anticipates Wataru Endo taking up a position at the base of the midfield, with Ryan Gravenberch and Harvey Elliott also being considered for starting roles.
In addition to these prospects, other young talents like Jarell Quansah, Ben Doak, and Stefan Bajcetic are mentioned as possible starters.
The Sunday match against Spurs is anticipated to be Liverpool’s most significant test of the season thus far, with Ange Postecoglou’s team performing well and trailing the Reds by just two points in the league standings.
Despite Liverpool’s strong track record at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the upcoming match is expected to be challenging.
Klopp, however, has a wealth of options at his disposal beyond just the young talents. This is particularly true in midfield, where experienced players like Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister are likely to be rested.
As noted by the ECHO, Gravenberch and Endo are strong candidates to fill two of the three midfield slots in the lineup.
The final slot could potentially go to Harvey Elliott, although Klopp may opt to deploy him in an attacking role. In such a case, Stefan Bajcetic could step in to fill the midfield role.
Considering Bajcetic’s recent stint at right-back against LASK, it’s also possible Klopp might use him in that position again.
In the event that these scenarios unfold, it would be exciting to see Bobby Clark given a chance, especially given Klopp’s recent praise for the young talent on the Liverpool FC website. Perhaps it’s time to unleash his potential.
