Ireland youngster Conor Masterson could be on the bench for Liverpool against Man City in Champions League showdown

Young Irish defender Conor Masterson has been drafted into the Liverpool squad and could earn a place on the bench for tonight's Champions League quarter final against Manchester City at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp was handed a mini defensive crisis when Joel Matip was ruled out for the rest of the season as he undergoes an operation on a thigh injury while Ragnar Klavan and Joe Gomez also miss tonight's hugely-anticipated Battle of Britain.

That leaves Masterson, Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren as Liverpool's only fit centre halves and with the latter two set to start, Masterson could be an option on the bench for the Reds.

19-year-old Lucan man Masterson is a key player in Steven Gerrard's Under-19 side, and he was one of five of that side promoted to train with the first team on Tuesday with Nathaniel Phillips, Curtis Jones, Herbie Kane and Rafa Camacho also rubbing shoulder's with Klopp's men at Melwood.

Masterson has been with Liverpool since the age of 13 with the Merseyside club signing him from west Dublin club Lucan United. He signed a deal, reportedly worth around €1 million, with Liverpool when he turned 16 and his progress has clearly been garnering the right kind of attention.
