The 2017-18 Academy season is Steven Gerrard's first full season in charge of the Under 18s, and first management role in all after becoming part of the academy staff in early 2017. The young Reds took part in the Premier League, Premier League Cup, and FA Youth Cup. Gerrard also took charge of an Under 19s side in the UEFA Youth League, combining both the reserve and Under 18s squads.

Gerrard’s Reds failed to deliver any trophies, but did show good progress in most competitions. The young side reached the quarter-final of both the Premier League Cup, and the UEFA Youth League. However, a disappointing 3-2 defeat at home to Arsenal knocked Liverpool out in the early stages of the FA Youth Cup.

Liverpool finished 3rd in the League, after going unbeaten in their opening twelve fixtures. A slump of five defeats in eight left them behind Manchester United and Manchester City in the standings.
