Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken highly of Tyler Morton.

Morton made his Premier League debut this past weekend when he played against Arsenal.

The 19-year-old midfielder did not start the match at Anfield this past Saturday.

The English teenager came on as a substitute for Spain international midfielder Thiago in the 84th minute.

Liverpool won 4-0.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Morton: “The other individual I want to mention following the weekend’s action against Arsenal is Tyler Morton. 

“It would not have been lost on our supporters that our bench that day had a fair share of youthfulness about it. I heard all the ‘past their bedtime’ jokes. 

“Tyler came on and the image of him being embraced by Thiago as he entered the pitch was really quite something.

“Tyler represents everything that is great about young footballers at our club. I know how highly Alex Inglethorpe and the Academy staff rate him. What a job they continue to do.

“He doesn’t need any more expectation placed on him, so I am not going to write a ‘love song’ here about what he is going to do in the game or what sort of player he is and might be. 

“We will see on that and he will write his own story. But it is the person he is that makes him very special.

“He earned those Premier League minutes and in doing so set an example to the young players who will inevitably follow him. He is such a credit to himself and his family. 

“His job now is to continue to lean in to the best personal qualities that have helped him to this point. That is all: be the same guy who treats each second with the first team as an opportunity to learn and be better.”

Liverpool will take on Southampton at Anfield in the Premier League this coming Saturday.

The Reds can be backed at 15/2 on Betfair to win the match 3-0.
