Former Morecambe loanee Danny Ward made his Premier League debut for Liverpool on Sunday.

The goalkeeper, who impressed during a spell with The Shrimps last season, replaced regular number one Simon Mignolet between the sticks in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

The 22-year-old, who also spent time with Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League, this season, said: “It’s a special day for myself and my family, but it was all about the three points.”

The Wales international was one of a number of changes made by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp following the dramatic Europa League win over Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night.
