While some of the youngsters on show have already made a flying start to the new season, for many it could be their first taste of first-team action.

SunSport has picked it’s all-star XI made up of wonderkids poised for some midweek action.

Caoimhin Kelleher get the goalkeeping gloves. He made his senior debut for the Reds last month at month in the cup against MK Dons.

Our three centre-halves are Chelsea duo Reece James and Fikayo Tomori and Manchester United’s Brandon Williams.

SOLSKJAER WATCHING ON

James is best played as a wing-back, but looks well-built to play in a back three.

Tomori has already made impressive strides at Stamford Bridge this season. He has made seven Prem appearances and was called up to the full England squad.

With Manchester United‘s troubles this season there have been calls to blood more youngsters instead of the more experienced players who aren’t cutting it.

Williams will get his chance to show Ole Gunnar Solskjaer what he is all about.

Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott, Chelsea’s Mason Mount, Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi and Manchester United’s Dan James get the midfield spots.

MARTINELLI TO IMPRESS?

Elliott is poised to become the youngest ever player to appear at Anfield. He signed from Fulham in the summer and is back after a ban for a historical social media tweet.

Mount, Guendouzi and Dan James have all been regulars for their respective clubs this season.

Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Chelsea wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi form the attacking three.

Martinelli will find game time hard to come by with the Gunners, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

But when called upon, he has looked to have something special in there and he has already scored five goals in six games in all competitions.

Rashford and Hudson-Odoi need no introduction.

Rashford is an established England international and leading the line this season for Manchester United while Hudson-Odoi is seen as one of the jewel’s in Chelsea’s crown.

The likes of Billy Goilmour at Chelsea, Arsenal duo Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka, Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster and Manchester United midfielder James Garner deserve honourable mentions.
