Liverpool midfielder Wilson: Sky's the limit for Bournemouth defender Mepham

Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson has hailed the potential of Bournemouth and Wales teammate Chris Mepham.

Wilson has just extended his loan at Bournemouth to the end of the season.

Wilson said of Mepham: “He is fantastic on the ball, defensively he is great as well.

“He's strong, wins his headers and his tackles – the sky is the limit for him.

“If he keeps playing regular football in the Premier League, I'm sure he'll keep doing well.

“When he got his deserved move to the Premier League, he made that step up.

“The Chelsea game (a 1-0 victory in December), I thought he was fantastic to put in a performance like that at Stamford Bridge. You need your defenders to do that, if you are to get a result."
