Tyler Morton has spoken of his pride after recently making his senior Liverpool debut.

The 18-year-old Academy graduate came off the bench to play the second half of the Carabao Cup win away at Norwich City last month.

For the Wallasey-born midfielder, who has been at the club since the age of seven, it was a moment he will never forget.

"It was a boyhood dream of mine," Morton told Liverpoolfc.com. "It was a really proud moment for me and my family.

"I just try to do my best every time I go out on the field – whether that is in training or in the matches.

"I've just got to keep working hard and keep improving."

Morton, who turns 19 at the end of the month, featured for Barry Lewtas' U21s last week as they lost 4-1 to an experienced Bolton Wanderers side in the Papa John's Trophy.

Despite the defeat, Morton insisted many positives can be taken from the overall display against League One opposition.

He continued: "It was an excellent experience again for us.

"Obviously being underdogs and coming away from home with a really young team against an experienced side, we can learn so much on the pitch.

"We always give our best and I thought we did well in the end, but the game just slipped away from us."
