Liverpool always tends to have a number of young players to watch out for at youth level and that has only increased even further across the course of the last few months or so. Jürgen Klopp fielded plenty of them in the Carabao Cup final.

And there is another name emerging that will be well worth keeping an eye on in the next few years. Seventeen-year-old Kieran Morrison scored two goals earlier today as the Reds beat Sunderland 2-1 at U18 level, coming from a goal down to earn the three points in the North East.

Morrison is left-footed but plays on the right and while he physically looks similar to Curtis Jones, a more accurate comparison in terms of his playing style is probably someone like Harry Wilson, who now plays for Fulham. Morrison has a similar tendency to beat a man and also has an eye for goal.

Wilson was prolific at youth level for Liverpool as he captained the then-U23s side and Morrison is heading in a similar direction. His brace earlier today took him to 13 goals for the season in all competitions and he has been impressing academy staff and onlookers for a while now with his skillful dribbling, his confidence, and his work ethic.

Morrison has already made a couple of appearances for Liverpool at U21 level and has trained with the senior team. Klopp rewarded his progress during the international break when he was training with the players who had been left behind, including Darwin Núñez.

He previously played for Manchester United before moving to Liverpool and Morrison is also a Northern Ireland U19 international. Even though he doesn't turn 18 until November, it seems it won't be long before Morrison is an U21 regular. says: Morrison is certainly one to watch ahead of the next couple of seasons. It will be really interesting to see how whoever takes over from Klopp uses the academy because that has been a major strength of the German's tenure. There is a lot of talent to make the most of beyond Morrison too and that tradition really needs to continue.

Kaide Gordon has been impressing lately and Ben Doak is still to come back from injury. We have seen a lot from Bobby Clark in recent weeks and then there are the likes of Jayden Danns and Lewis Koumas. There is a huge amount of potential to be unlocked still and whoever comes in as the new head coach will need to harness that and ensure it doesn't go to waste.
