Liverpool have quite the task on their hands when it comes to making the top 4. Right now at least 2 other clubs are vying for that coveted 3rd and 4th spot besides them.
To make matters worse, they are missing a number of key players. Aside from star forward Sadio Mane – who was pictured outside a London hospital after undergoing surgery on his torn meniscus – they are also without skipper Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana, both of whom are absent from training.
However, their absence might just be an opportunity for one Luis Longstaff. The young midfielder, who is currently playing for the Reds’ under-18 side, was spotted training along with the rest of the first team, meaning a debut appearance could be likely any time soon for the midfield prospect.
