Mark Wright says he was impressed with what he saw from young Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn against Plymouth Argyle on Sunday afternoon.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp made wholesale changes to his side for the FA Cup third round tie, but saw his men come up short as Plymouth claimed a famous 0-0 draw at Anfield to book a replay.
Woodburn got 75 minutes under his belt before being replaced by Roberto Firmino as the Reds pushed to try and find a winner against the League Two outfit.
Wright was pleased with what he saw from the youngster, being encouraged by his touches and intelligent play.
"I was watching the boy Woodburn and I quite liked what he was about", Wright said on LFC TV.
"Yes, he played safe, but he had good feet, he wanted to get in behind and probe.
"Every time he passed it forward, he shot ten yards to go and join in.
"I was very impressed with what he was about", the former defender added.
Woodburn will be looking for another chance to impress in the replay, as Liverpool look to book a spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Plymouth may fancy their chances of causing an upset in the replay as they head into the game high on confidence, sitting in second spot in League Two.
