Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is well known for his propensity of giving young players a chance to shine in the first team and 18-year-old midfielder Ejaria was the latest youngster to feature for the first team after he was awarded with an appearance during the EFL Cup clash against Derby County recently.
Alexander-Arnold has been encouraged to see his Under-23 teammate earn a place in the first team and the 17-year-old has also gone on to express his ambition of making his bow for Liverpool in the foreseeable future.
He told the Liverpool Echo: "I'm just going to keep working hard, keep learning, do the things in training he wants me to do.
"With time I'll mature, I should be fighting for places.
"Ovie's only a year older than me, I'm really happy for him because I know he deserved it with his performances and the way that he trains, it's thoroughly deserved.
"Hopefully if I keep training well I'll get into the manager's books."
