      Won't happen, but I would love to see Jürgen name him in the front three for the West Ham game.

      Bit puzzled by a midfielder playing in the front 3?

      Lines up on the left of a front three for the U23s more often than not.

      “I think Curtis can play in two positions – left of the front three and in midfield, too. He’s possibly more Adam Lallana than Sadio Mane in terms of his approach and capabilities.”

      This lad has everything he needs to be a player. the problem all these lads have is getting time on the pitch in meaningful games. The standards now are so high the results so important its difficult for a manager to select young lads unless forced to do so. If we don't beat Shrewsbury it might be the last game he starts for us this seasons so you can see how these lads get frustrated.
      My hope is we win the league with 6 or 7 games to go then they can play and rest the big players for the CL.

      I would love to see Jürgen select him for tonight's game. He would do the job, I'm sure of it. I realize there are older players including Divock who are more likely to get the nod, but at some point a manager has to pick a young player in a meaningful match for him to really have that opportunity.

      Its getting more and more difficult for these lads to break through and more and more important to win every game Managers are under immense pressure at both ends of the Table. I think we will see him on as a sub a few more times then start getting first team chances but who does he replace we are Champions of the world these lads will not like losing their place to anyone

      Will get the last 5 games of the league season if we take care of business early I would guess. Be nice to see what some of the best young lads can do playing with the first team.

      No question about not players wanting to lose their place. In this case, Sadio is out injured - that is what provides more of an opportunity for Jürgen to select him tonight. Every great player who came out of our own system, Fowler, Owen, McManaman, Trent - they all were given a first team chance at some point. As I say, probably won't happen, but I wish it would.

      If he's good enough he's old enough, and I think this lad has shown throughout the season that he's good enough.

      this team though is far better than any team they played in and its over 20 years since they played . wasn't Trent's debut against UTD at their place and he did well.

      Fair enough Walt. I'd still love to see Curtis on from the start. So hard to break through at a big club, let along the best team in the world, which is what we are at the moment.

      Got a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Curtis in the coming months, regardless of what happens at Anfield against Shrewsbury.

      Feels like he is naturally becoming the next youth player to get the chance to make a name for himself in this first-team squad, he is already showing promising signs but let's see how the rest of the season goes for him!

      Again, would love to see him from the start vs. Southampton. divock went off injured and has played two matches in a row now. Perfect chance to get Curtis a Premier League start.

      If Origi is unfit, I prefer him over Minamino at the moment. He has the skill and an eye for a good run and goal. He should not need to worry to much about his defence.
