IRISH teenager Conor Masterson has been told to prepare himself for a Premier League debut with Liverpool in the coming weeks as the Reds put all their focus on a Champions League bid.

With only five Premier League games left and a 10-point lead over Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp's are almost guaranteed a top-four finish.

That will allow Klopp rest his key players for the Champions League semi-final battle, a chance for Lucan United product Masterson, who was on the bench for the Reds' games last week with Everton and Manchester City.

"The way the season progresses, with those two Champions League games coming up and if we can be in the top four guaranteed, then maybe the manager thinks 'If they've done well in training, they might get an opportunity'," said Neil Critchely, Masterson's coach with the Reds' U23 side

"They've got to be ready for it."

Robbie Keane (2008) was the last Irish player to make a first-team appearance for the Reds.
