Jack Robinson's debut for Liverpool yesterday came completely out of the blue.

Jack Robinson's debut for Liverpool yesterday came completely out of the blue.

The teenage fullback has not even made his debut for the reserves, but was handed his chance by manager Rafa Benitez in their 0-0 draw with Hull City.

Robinson became Liverpool's youngest ever player when he came on against Hull City on Sunday aged 16 years and 250 days.

The Warrington-born defender broke a record set by Max Thompson, who made his debut at the age of 17 years and 129 days in 1974.

Though Robinson replaced Ryan Babel on the left of midfield at Hull, his natural position is at full-back.
