Youngster Jarell Quansah insists Liverpool Under-21s' first clean sheet of the season during their win over Blackburn Rovers can serve as a barometer for the campaign. Earlier, Max Woltman scored the only goal as the young Reds defeated Mike Sheron's side 1-0 under the watchful eye of Jürgen Klopp to claim their first three points in Premier League 2 this season.

After a 3-0 opening day defeat to Manchester City, Barry Lewtas' side's response was excellent. A draw away to Brighton & Hove Albion thanks to a superb last-gasp Layton Stewart finish, and last weekend's win over Blackburn means the squad head into Friday night's game at Tottenham Hotspur in a positive frame of mind.

"Getting clean sheets for someone playing at the back is one of the most important things possible, and we're young as well. So the more we work on the training ground, the more we get to know each other. It's about creating a culture and an atmosphere among us where we can keep a clean sheet, that makes us excited and that's a good base to work from," said Quansah.

Quansah's words

"It's always a good challenge in Premier League 2 and every team poses a different threat Blackburn were a bit more direct, so we were able to deal with that, come away with a clean sheet and get the win, so we're happy," he said.

"The first game against Manchester City was difficult. We had moments where we played well, but losing 3-0 at home was not enough. However, we have good foundations and we are building blocks, which allowed us to take a step forward at Brighton and we were unlucky not to win the game," he added.
