Liverpool defender says he is "learning new things everyday" despite tough season for Reds

Young Liverpool defender Neco Williams has taken this season to be another phase of the "learning curve" he is on as a player under Jürgen Klopp's tutelage. Williams, 19, is the backup right-back for Liverpool, providing cover for the excellent Trent Alexander-Arnold. He has made 13 first-team appearances so far in 2020/21. In an interview for Premier League Productions, Williams was asked about the experience he has gained this season and what he has learned from it:
"This season is …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Trent's understudy

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Trent's understudy

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a problem for Liverpool. A good one, but, nevertheless, a problem. He’s a unique right-back and it means that whenever he doesn’t start, there’s a noticeable drop-off in quality and quite a shift in style.  The 22-year-old came through the ranks as a midfielder and it’s why he’s so comfortable when tasked with being a playmaker. It’s not often you see a midfielder move to full-back. The usual path is ball-carrying winger to full-back, largely because full-backs …

Young Liverpool defender hopeful of more game time if Reds can progress further in FA Cup

Liverpool defender Neco Williams is hopeful of a long FA Cup run this season so he can benefit from potentially more game time with the first team. Jurgen Klopp's side survived a first-half scare against Aston Villa's youth players last Friday night in the third round of the competition. Louie Barry beat Rhys Williams and Caoimhin Kelleher to make it 1-1 for at the half-time break at Villa Park. However, Liverpool's dominance showed in the second half as they ran …

Harvey Elliott Future Proofing Liverpool's Midfield

Liverpool's young players have won much acclaim this season. Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher, Neco Williams, and Rhys Williams have all played a big part in the Reds' campaign -- probably owing to the injury crisis that has engulfed the first team and the opportunities it has given them to play -- so far and have done themselves proud with some strong performances. Another Liverpool youngster -- albeit one who is out on loan -- is excelling this season is Blackburn …

Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

With justification, Ajax are considered one of the best talent producing clubs in world football. Footballing luminaries such as Johan Cruijff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp and Wesley Sneijder, among many others, have cut their footballing teeth in the Amsterdam club's academy system. But in Liverpool's 1-0 Champions League victory over Ajax last Tuesday, it was the Merseyside club's homegrown players who stood up and tilted the game in the favour of the Anfield team. Caoimhin Kelleher, Curtis Jones and …

Henderson sings praises of team's young stars after impressive performances against Ajax

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was full of praise for the team's young stars after Tuesday night's Champions League win over Ajax at Anfield. With Alisson Becker sustaining an injury, Jürgen Klopp made the brave decision to go with 22-year-old Caoimhin Kelleher in goals for The Reds instead of the more experienced Adrián. In defence, Neco Williams, 19, started at right-back despite having a tough time in his previous few games. Curtis Jones, also just 19, played in midfield alongside Henderson …
Liverpool Seal Qualification After Ajax Win

Liverpool Seal Qualification After Ajax Win

Liverpool qualified for the last sixteen of the Champions League after a 1-0 win over Ajax at Anfield. Curtis Jones scored the only goal of a scrappy game as the rotated and depleted Reds dug deep to seal the victory. The three points -- plus Midtjylland drawing away to Atalanta -- means the 2019 Champions will win group D, regardless of their result in Denmark next week. Injuries have bedevilled Jurgen Klopp this season, and the team was once afflicted …
