Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been impressed by some of the youngsters taking part in preseason training this summer.

"All the young lads have done very well on this trip, especially Jay Spearing and Stephen Darby," Carragher told "Hopefully that will continue. They don't need any advice from me; they are doing very well at the moment.

"Daniel Pacheco has looked very sharp - he is a class player and we are delighted to have him.

"Hopefully he can go on and do it this season but, as I say, he is still a young player - you shouldn't forget that. Hopefully he will be a Liverpool boy for years to come."
