The Champions League encounter may have been a dead rubber from a Liverpool perspective, but the visitors needed the points — it was crucial top-level experience for the 19-year-old, and he deputised magnificently for Fabinho.

“I am long enough in the business to not put a player in unless he is ready.” Those were the words of Jürgen Klopp when asked to assess the decision to play Tyler Morton from the start against Porto.

By the second half, the threat from the Portuguese had been all but snuffed out, with the midfield unit exuding control.

Probably nowhere near as much as he should; a good defensive midfielder hoovers things up without getting much for the highlights reel.

So far, the teenager has repaid the manager’s tentative faith with interest: at this rate, it will not be long before he is accepted as the undisputed backup to Fabinho at Liverpool.

Even so, when some last-ditch action was needed, Morton was up to that challenge too.

Of course, displacing the Brazilian is an effectively impossible task, but the lack of depth in this position gives a clear pathway to senior minutes.
