Ickle Liverpool youngster Jack Hobbs reckons that he might get his first Premiership start in Saturday’s game at Reading. Young defender Hobbs leapt on against Bolton, replacing Jamie Carragher and with ‘Carra’ struggling to recover from his injury, Hobbs could get his first start.
“Carra has a week to recover to the Reading game, but if I can fill in and help out I will do,” Hobbs said on the club’s official website.I’d look forward to it and feel I am ready. I was a little bit nervous when the manager told me to strip off on Sunday. When he called me over I didn’t know that Carra was injured, but when I got told I was on I was excited and nervous. I just wanted to get out there and do it. It’s another step in my career. It’s a bit more experience for me and it will make the time easier. I’m glad to have come through it without any mistakes.”
He added: “I’m relieved and quite pleased to have finally made my Premier League debut. I’m just glad to have got a run out, really happy.
Although Rafa reckons Carra will be back for the Reading game, he’s one booking away from missing the far more vital Man Utd clash – worth playing 19 year old Hobbs from the start
