Talented Irish youngster could be included in Liverpool's squad for FA Cup tie

A brilliant opportunity for the 17 year old.

Conor Masterson looks set to be included in Liverpool's squad for their FA Cup tie against Exeter City this evening.

The Dubliner signed for the Anfield side back in 2012 from Lucan United, in a deal reportedly worth £1 million to the defender, and has seemingly impressed enough in the underage sides to get the call-up for tonight's fixture.

Jurgen Klopp's side are in the middle of an injury crisis, with 13 first-team players on the sidelines, and the Liverpool manager has said he will give young players and those on the fringes at Anfield a chance for tonight's game.
