Liverpool got a taste of winning ways again after returning to action against Blackburn Rovers in a friendly at Anfield on Thursday.
It was a triumphant affair for the Premier League champions-elect, who ran out 6-0 winners on home soil. Goals from six different players secured the win, including youngsters Ki-Jana Hoever and Leighton Clarkson.
Should Harvey Elliott be given more time in the first team?
Midfielder Clarkson rounded off the afternoon with his composed strike inside the box, taking his time on the ball before slotting it past the goalkeeper. The 18-year-old has registered four assists in Liverpool’s youth competitions this season, setting himself up for a promising-looking 2020/21 campaign (via Transfermarkt).
Loads of Reds fans have responded to Clarkson’s goal after the official LFC Twitter posted footage of the youngster in action. One supporter has even commented that the teenager’s strike reminded them of Robbie Fowler, who would often dribble past defenders before coolly finding the back of the net.
