Benitez backs Liverpool kids El Zhar, Insua to make impact

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez believes fans are getting a glimpse of the strength of their youth system this season.

In his match programme notes for yesterday's draw with Hull City, Benitez reflected on last week's win at Blackburn Rovers: "People regularly talk about the strength in depth and I think last weekend showed we have that.

"Both Emiliano Insua and Nabil El Zhar played a part in a good victory at Ewood Park.

"Insua did well at left-back, and El Zhar came on to offer us pace on the wing. He has done that a lot this season already.

"They are young players who can be part of this squad and can make a difference. If everyone does that we can achieve success."
