Liverpool teen set to break Reds record

Published Add your comment

Liverpool starlet Jerome Sinclair is poised to become the club’s youngest ever player in tonight’s Capital One Cup third round clash at West Bromwich Albion.

At 16 years and six days, the talented teenager is poised to take the record from defender Jack Robinson, who made his first appearance for the Reds in a Premier League match against Hull City back in May 2010.

Sinclair is reported to have impressed Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers in the 3-2 NextGen Series defeat to Inter Milan in Italy last week, and could be instantly rewarded in the League Cup at the Hawthorns.

Capped at Under-17 level by England, the striker has been drafted into the squad alongside 19-year-old German defender Stephen Sama, whilst a host of other inexperience players are expected to feature for the Anfield outfit.

Brad Jones is likely to start in goal for Liverpool, having played in the club’s 5-3 Europa League victory over Young Boys, whilst Suso, Andre Wisdom, Jamie Carragher and Dani Pacheco are also expected to feature.

Indeed, Liverpool could make 11 changes from the side that lost 2-1 to Manchester United at the weekend.
