Liverpool starlet duo Bobby Duncan and Paul Glatzel will be given the opportunity to impress Jurgen Klopp during pre-season, as reported by Liverpool Echo.

Both 18-years old, the duo kicked off their pre-season campaign tonight against Tranmere Rovers, starting for Liverpool in the second half in a 6-0 win at Prenton Park where Duncan scored the final goal.

Duncan and Glatzel scored more than 60 goals between them last season at Under-18s level, helping the club to the FA Youth Cup title where they beat Manchester City on penalties.

Liverpool lose Jaros for pre-season through injury

Liverpool lose Jaros for pre-season through injury Liverpool’s pre-season preparations have been dealt a blow as another goalkeeper has been ruled out for the remainder of the schedule following a training injury. 17-year-old stopper Vitezslav Jaros won’t play a further part after suffering an elbow ligament strain ahead of the Reds’ 3-1 friendly win at Bradford City on Sunday. He made his senior debut by playing a half in the opening pre-season fixture at Tranmere Rovers and was set to act as Simon Mignolet’s back-up for the next few weeks following Caoimhin Kelleher’s broken wrist.

Glatzel , who has battled back from a broken leg and hamstring injuries, was also named captain by I feel in good shape and I did quite well in pre - season , but that was just pre - season so I’ve got to Seeing the boys get a chance and do well is good for us and we all hope that we can get there one

The door to Liverpool ’s first team is open for the youngsters who will get their chance to shine at Tranmere Rovers and beyond during pre - season Only as an example, Bobby Duncan and Paul Glatzel : our offensive line that played last year is coming pretty late in joining us in the pre - season

The Reds are without a number of first-team forward at the moment due to the African Cup of Nations, with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah all unavailable. With Xherdan Shaqiri also injured, the duo will get their chance to impress the German boss.

Speaking prior to the Tranmere game on Thursday night, Klopp said of the two:

“A lot of them [youngsters] will be part of the US tour, we have to use that because of the number of games we play. We need all of them and that’s nice.”

“Only as an example, Bobby Duncan and Paul Glatzel: our offensive line that played last year is coming pretty late in joining us in the pre-season, so we have to be creative system-wise and all that stuff, but there will be moments when they have to play.”

“Not only at Tranmere or whatever, but in America as well when we play Borussia Dortmund and all the other guys. So, it’s good and it’s always like this: when you are already in the club, then the door is always open for you to the first team.”

“The thing is you have to go through by yourself – we only open the door, we don’t push you through. So, I’m open, I’m very open for exciting football players and if the boys show up, good for them and good for us.”

Liverpool's Robertson has treatment on infected hand.
The Scotland international will miss part of the Reds' pre-season preparations but will nevertheless travel to the US with the rest of the squad
