In the recent 3-2 defeat against Chelsea, Livramento stepped up for his eighth Premier League start of the season, filling in for the injured Kieran Trippier. Despite the disappointing outcome for Newcastle at Stamford Bridge, the 21-year-old showcased a commendable performance, catching the eye of England manager Gareth Southgate, who was present to scout potential talents ahead of the forthcoming international fixtures against Brazil and Belgium.

While Chelsea’s Cole Palmer impressed with a goal and an assist, Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon suffered a setback, sustaining a knee injury likely to hinder his chances of securing his maiden senior England call-up. However, amidst the injuries, Livramento’s name emerges as a potential candidate under Southgate’s consideration.

With Trippier, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Reece James sidelined due to injuries, the £31 million signing, Livramento, could find himself in contention for a national team opportunity. Newcastle United’s manager, Eddie Howe, praised Livramento’s performance, highlighting his versatility and contribution on both flanks during the match against Chelsea.

Livramento’s journey through England’s youth ranks, from Under-15s to Under-21s, sets the stage for a potential senior call-up. Additionally, Trippier has expressed confidence in Livramento’s abilities, tipping him for success both at Newcastle and as a future England right-back.
