Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers hopes young striker Adam Morgan will be able to further his development with Europa League experience and eventually provide support for a lightweight front line.

The 18-year-old had made the trip to Russia to face Anzhi Makhachkala as part of a squad lacking a number of first-team regulars and he may get a chance to show what he can do. But Rodgers is wary of loading too much pressure on the teenager, who was prolific at youth level.

"Adam has done very well," the Northern Irishman told Press Association Sport. "He was with us in pre-season and then he has gone back to working with the under-21s and scoring goals and he has had the opportunity to travel out with us."
