Liverpool captain things youngster has big future

Steven Gerrard feels England youth star Jonjo Shelvey has a big career ahead of him at Liverpool. Shelvey arrived at Anfield in the summer from Charlton, but he has been limited to just one appearance in the League Cup since moving. But Reds skipper Gerrard thinks he showed enough in the defeat against Northampton, to show he has huge potential. "When Jonjo came on against Northampton I thought he did really well," Gerrard said on the club's official website. "He put some dangerous balls into their box and just that piece of action will have done him the world of good as he moves forward. "It'll give him the confidence to try and shift people from the first eleven. "He is a talented player. He's still young and still a baby in football terms but if he keeps learning - not just from me but from everyone in the squad, people who are older than him and have been there and done it before - his game will continue to get better and better."
