Stewart aims for more regular football with Liverpool

Kevin Stewart didn’t really impress for Liverpool against Plymouth, with the 23-year-old criticised on social media, but it seems the young lad is intent on securing more regular playing opportunities on Merseyside.

One of many young players given an opportunity an Anfield for Saturday’s 0-0 draw with League Two Plymouth Argyle, forcing the Reds to face a replay in a few weeks time, Jurgen Klopp rates Stewart highly and hasn’t been afraid to give youngsters an opportunity this term.

Ahead of the match, where Stewart completed the full ninety minutes, he told The Liverpool Echo he’s not happy with being a bit-part member of the squad and wants to prove himself further.

“I’m not someone who just going to settle with playing every now and again. I’ve got to accept that’s where I am at the minute but no disrespect to other teams I’m at Liverpool and it’s a massive club and I’m competing for spots with top international players.”

“I don’t need to pressure myself that I’m not there at the minute because it’s not an easy thing.”

Having not performed to a high standard at the weekend, Stewart definitely needs to improve if he’s to force his way into the first-team frame but he should get further opportunities in the coming weeks with the League Cup semi-final against Southampton and FA Cup replay.
