Rodgers challenges young strikers to step up at Liverpool

After Liverpool’s transfer window disappointment that saw £35m Andy Carroll depart the club on loan without a replacement being brought in, manager Brendan Rodgers has according to the Liverpool Echo challenged the youth prospects in his side to step up and cover for Carroll’s absence until the January transfer window.

Rodgers, who has often spoken of his willingness to give young players a chance in his short managerial career to date, has already had success this season with the emergence of Raheem Sterling, who has impressed against the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal already this season. Despite his disappointing over Carroll’s departure, Rodgers has pointed to the likes of Adam Morgan, Suso, Samed Yesil, Michael Ngoo, as well as Jordan Ibe, who Liverpool saw off the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to sign from Wycombe last winter. Liverpool have currently made their worst start to a season since 1962 and with League Cup as well as Europa League commitments from now until January, the pressure will be on the youngsters to step up.
