Exciting Liverpool prospect Toni Silva is eyeing Carling Cup action this season.

Reds management are expecting big things from the Portuguese whizkid.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "Just looking at the pre-season, you could see two or three young players such as Raheem (Sterling) and Suso playing in the first-team.

"It's a great incentive for players in the reserves and the Academy. I'd love to have the chance to play in the Carling Cup or even be on the bench - we will have to see."

Toni revealed among his heroes is Manchester United star Nani.

He added: "I liked Figo, but he has retired now. Nani, Simao and Quaresma are good too."
