Wilson hoping to be given chance

The Welsh international, who is yet to make a first-team appearance for the club, has been inspired by the breakthroughs made by Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold this season.

“When you see the amount of players the manager has given debuts it gives you a lot of hope.” the nineteen year old said.

“With how Ben has broken in over the last few weeks and done really well, it proves if you do well you stay in there.

“We are more or less halfway through the season and I am scoring, assisting and helping the team and I just have to be patient.

“I feel if I keep doing what I am doing the chance will come for me like the rest of the lads.”


And Wilson believes that the foundations are being put in place at the Academy for the teenagers at the club to progress into the first-team squad.

“Not only preparing you for it, once it has happened I think they are really good in that aspect.” he said.

“You’ve just scored for Liverpool and I bet the internet just blows up, but they protect you really well because you are in the spotlight and everyone wants to talk to you.

“We do things here like they do at Melwood so if you have to make that step up you know what to do, where to go and how the team works.

“Every lad has been up to Melwood a few times this season and the training sessions are fairly similar because the way we want to play mirrors the first team so that gets you prepared for what’s to come hopefully.” he finished.

Wilson will be hoping to be handed an opportunity to impress when Sadio Mane goes away with the Senegalese national side in January.
