Jamie Carragher thinks Neco Williams, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott are ready to feature more for the first team at Liverpool.

With the Premier League title sewn up before their heavy loss on Thursday night to Manchester City, Liverpool will be able to afford to give some youngsters a chance between now and the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be chasing records between now and the climax of the campaign but there could be some more opportunities to see his youngsters.

The Liverpool boss has played down the prospect of big-money deals this summer and that could see the club rely more on its youth to improve the squad next season.

“It’s still maybe a bit early for some of them who are really young,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“But you think of Harvey Elliott, who is only 17. Neco Williams and Curtis Jones as well. They’ll probably be squad players. We talk about managers giving young players a chance, but we also say clubs need to invest.

“It’s very hard for clubs to get that balance right but Jurgen Klopp has done that superbly this season. He’s given the youngsters plenty of opportunities in cup competitions and they haven’t let him down.”
