The wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain have made it a superb week so far for Jurgen Klopp’s senior side.

But it’s also been seven days to savour for the club’s younger teams.

There was a third straight league victory for Barry Lewtas’ U18s before Neil Critchey’s U23s got their season up and running with a success that was aided by the inclusion of a number of first-team players.

But arguably the most impressive result of the lot came on Tuesday when the U19s, managed by Lewtas, swept aside Paris Saint-Germain 5-2 in their UEFA Youth League opener.

Our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce joins host Paul Wheelock to reflect on the hat-trick of wins and give a progress check on some of the starlets currently catching the eye, including Rafa Camacho and Curtis Jones, Bobby Adekanye, Paul Glatzel and Bobby Duncan, as well as new boy Ki-Jana Hoever.

James also speaks about Liverpool FC Women, who ended a difficult week, which saw the shock departure of manager Neil Redfearn, on a positive note.

Enjoy.
