Liverpool midfielder Conor Coady is eager to learn from his senior teammates.

The 19-year-old was handed his Reds debut by Brendan Rodgers in last week's Europa League defeat to Anzhi Makhachkala at the Lokomotiv Stadium.

"I think I need to work on the speed of my play," Coady told Liverpoolfc.com. "I need to be able to play quicker and to play two-touch football. In the position I play you have to do that quite a lot.

"If you look at the players we have in the first team now in my position, you're talking about the likes of Gerrard and Allen and they are very quick on the ball. They know where the ball is going to break before it does.

"My aim is to keep my head down and work as hard as possible. I need to keep focused in the gym, keep getting stronger and keep improving on the football pitch. I'll see where it takes me and hopefully I can make a few more appearances."
