Some Liverpool fans on social media heaped praise on defender Adam Lewis after he featured for the U-19s against Paris St Germain in the UEFA Youth League on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old left-back, who played four times in the Premier League 2 this season, had a section of fans gushing about his potential following his latest display.

The Reds’ U-19s star had one fan tweet to share they thought he deserved to go straight into the first-team in a couple of season in order to replace Alberto Moreno while another claimed he was a nice footballer to watch.

OPINION

Lewis is a fantastic prospect who continues to look like he is improving at the club and his future looks very bright at Anfield. It’s kind of amusing that after years of struggling to find a left-back capable of making the position his own in the first-team, the Reds now have an option lined-up to take over from Andy Robertson in the future in the form of Lewis. While one fan stated their doubts about the teenager having the physical attributes to break into the first-team, he still miles off making that step up so they shouldn’t worry. It’s interesting that several fans drooled over the potential of Lewis on Tuesday as after the Reds defeated PSG 5-2 in the UEFA Youth League, they did have several players they could have chosen to rave about. However it’s a testament to Lewis’ performance and glowing reputation that several fans opted to put the spotlight on him instead of his more attacking teammates.
