Rafa has gone about assembling a fine array of young talent at Anfield, and now he wants to beat neighbours Everton to a left-sided teenager…

Joe Mattock is a promising young player who was possibly the one bright spark at the Walkers Stadium last season as they sunk to League One.

Are Liverpool excited about the youngsters at the club? Will the likes of Hobbs, Insua, Plessis, Nemeth and many more help secure a bright future for the club?
