Arsenal great Wright excited about 'calm' Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo

Arsenal great Ian Wright has been left impressed with Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo.

The 18-year-old has featured in three Premier League games this season, including back-to-back wins against Stoke City and Bournemouth in the past two fixtures.

Wright, who was working as a pundit on Match Of The Day's coverage of Sunday's 2-1 win over the Cherries, spoke highly of Ojo who played a full 90 minutes on the south coast for Jurgen Klopp.

"I remember we did the FA Cup game when Liverpool played Exeter on this quagmire of a pitch and seeing Ojo with his beautiful left foot," Wright said on the BBC.

He added: "He's got this calm demeanour about him.

"I am so excited about him and want to see what he's like in bigger games, more intensified."
