I like Mattie though he's still a bit inconsistent you can see what he brings to the team when he plays.
Matthew was a Chelsea player from the age of nine before he and his family moved to the local area and he signed for Liverpool as an U11.
His fine awareness out on the field allows him to excel in the central-midfield role.
Matthew has good technical ability and features for the U18 and U21 squads.

In our exclusive Q&A below, Virtue reveals the former Reds playmaker he has watched closely, the racing driver he would love to meet and much more...
