Jurgen Klopp calls up ‘outstanding’ 19-year-old Liverpool youngster ahead of Union Saint-Gilloise clash
Luke Chambers has been called up by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to train with the club’s first team ahead of tonight’s Europa League match.
The team’s preparation for their match against Union Saint-Gilloise was documented in a series of photographs shared by the club.
The Europa League will provide Liverpool with an excellent opportunity to play some of their bench players.
Although the club would prefer to play on a Tuesday or Wednesday during the week, there are some positives to be found.
In addition to being one of the most formidable teams in the competition, they should aim to win the tournament this year.
Luke Chambers is a player Jurgen Klopp seems to be closely monitoring, and he could make his first start for Liverpool today.
He made his debut for the club this season in the EFL Cup against Leicester City as a late substitute, but he has previously trained with the first team.
Given how well Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas have performed when called upon, the left-back faces an uphill battle to make the team.

Given that Andy Robertson rarely misses a league match for Liverpool, it is highly likely that Kostas Tsimikas will start today.
The Greek international is one of the most formidable reserve fullbacks in the league and is constantly vying for Robertson’s starting position.
This places Luke Chambers in a difficult position following his return from Kilmarnock last season following a loan spell there.
His manager at the time described him as “outstanding,” and he went on to play 16 matches for the Scottish team before returning to Anfield.
The Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso is interested in signing him for Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.
Chambers is no exception to Klopp’s desire to keep a close eye on Liverpool’s young players.
Ben Doak has demonstrated that you can make the team if you seize your opportunities when they arise.
Due to Curtis Jones and Alexis Mac Allister’s suspensions in the Premier League, Liverpool will be able to field a slightly stronger team today.
It would be shocking if tonight’s match against Union Saint-Gilloise did not afford the duo the opportunity to maintain match fitness.
