Liverpool’s FA Cup campaign this season has been an odd one, to say the least, but their journey in England’s oldest cup competition this year has brought forth the attention of some promising youngsters at the club.
“The better players and the better opponents you play against are going to improve you as a player.”@necowilliams01 believes he has benefited greatly from playing time this season 👊🔴

And Neco Williams is one of the prospects who took their chance in the cup with both hands as the teenager defender started every FA Cup fixture for the Reds this year, with the Wales youth international impressing supporters greatly with his similar attributes to Trent Alexander-Arnold and attacking intent that caused many a problem over the course of the four games he played it.
Did Liverpool have the best-ever unbeaten run?
The 18-year-old right-back was impressive in his spell in the Liverpool first-team, and some supporters on social media are calling out for Jurgen Klopp to hand Williams more senior appearances should the Reds wrap up the Premier League title in an orderly fashion.
Here’s what a handful of Liverpool supporters had to say about Williams’ performances in the first-team on Twitter…
Play him in the league as soon as it’s wrapped up
