Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says Tyler Morton “hasn’t looked fazed” in his displays for the first team and believes the teenager “has a big future ahead of him”.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has handed Morton five starts across all competitions so far this season, as well as a further two substitute appearances for a combined total of 426 first-team minutes.

The 19-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s Champions League victories over Porto and Milan, as well as the EFL Cup fourth-round win over Preston North End, and was handed his first Premier League start in the recent 2-2 draw at Tottenham.

And Henderson has been impressed with his fellow midfielder’s performances and development since the start of the season, tipping Morton to go on to big things.

“Tyler has been brilliant over the last few months, I really think he has improved,” Henderson said to Liverpool’s official website.

“He has obviously learned and listened to a lot of the lads around him in training and being around the lads, in the dressing room and in training, it will certainly help him.

“And I think that has helped him going into games, I think he has looked comfortable and he hasn’t looked fazed at all and he has done really well.

“So hopefully he can just carry on doing that. He is a great lad as well, he has worked extremely hard and I’m sure he’ll have a big future ahead of him.”

Liverpool currently sit six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City with a game in hand, and travel to the King Power Stadium to play Leicester City on Tuesday.
