Jordan Henderson impressed with Tyler Morton’s improvement


Jordan Henderson has praised Liverpool’s young Tyler Morton for his improvement in recent months after a series of appearances in Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven.

The absence of the likes of Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago has seen Morton join the Reds’ squad and he has recently started against AC Milan and Tottenham.

Although it has been a baptism of fire for the 19-year-old, club captain Henderson says he has been impressed by his improvement.

“Tyler has been brilliant in recent months, I really think he has improved,” Henderson told Liverpool’s website.

“He’s obviously learned and listened to a lot of the guys around him in training and when he’s around the guys, in the locker room and in training, it’s sure to help him. And I think it’s helped him get into matches, I think he has looked comfortable and he has not looked confused at all and he has done really well.

“So hopefully he can continue with that. He is also a fantastic boy, he has worked extremely hard and I am sure he will have a great future ahead of him.”

Morton received some criticism for a crunchy tackle by Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira during the victory in the Carabao Cup last week.

Pereira wrote on his Instagram: “Perspective. You can say that I should feel unlucky after getting off in my recurring game and part of me is, but after what could be a season-ending tackle, what could be a “ACL, I feel lucky. It’s none of them even though I’ll be gone for a while. Like I said, that’s perspective, for some it was just a yellow card.”

Liverpool face Leicester again in the Premier League on Tuesday, after having their match against Leeds postponed on the second days.
