Adam Lallana: Liverpool 19-year-old is club's most underrated player
By Matt Farr
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana insists Harry Wilson is the club’s most underrated player.
The Liverpool starlet, 19, made his first-team debut for the club in the FA Cup third round replay win over Plymouth in January.
However, despite impressing for the reserve side at Anfield, Wilson has yet to make another appearance in the first-team.
He has scored a remarkable eight goals and contributed three assists from just 12 appearances for Liverpool U23’s this season, and Lallana believes he has a great future ahead of him.

“He is captain of the U23s, he has been training with us permanently for three or four weeks. He has got a great left foot.
“Everyone is speaking about Ben Woodburn, Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Ovie [Ejaria], but Harry keeps his head down, works hard and I think he has a great future ahead of him.”
The young winger possesses tremendous pace, a great touch, ability and acceleration with a ball at his feet, and he is likely to get his chance to shine in the first-team squad ahead of next season.
He has already smashed down the barrier to the international stage, earning his Wales senior debut in a World Cup qualifier against Belgium in October 2013.
In doing so, Wilson became the youngest ever player to represent Wales at senior level at the tender of just 16 years and 208 days.
Jurgen Klopp has integrated several of Liverpool’s upcoming talents into the first-team squad this season, with the likes of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold each making their Premier League debuts earlier in the campaign.
Wilson is likely to be the next name on the list.
