Liverpool: Fans want Harry Wilson to be given a chance at Anfield

Despite featuring in seven pre-season games for Liverpool and scoring a brilliant long-range goal against Lyon in one of those, striker Harry Wilson was allowed to leave on loan for Bournemouth earlier this month.

The 22-year-old scored his first Cherries goal last week, a long-range shot against Aston Villa, and Liverpool-focused Twitter channel @AnfieldWatch posted a pertinent statistic while asking if he has a future at his parent club.

According to Anfield Watch, Wilson has now scored 10 goals from outside the penalty area since the start of last season, more than anyone else in English professional football.

The Wales international scored regularly for Liverpool’s under-23 side, with 32 goals in 60 appearances, but has played just once in a competitive game for the first team, an FA Cup replay against Plymouth in January 2017.

After scoring seven times in 14 games on loan at Hull two seasons ago, Wilson excelled during his loan spell at Derby last season, finishing the campaign with 18 goals from 49 appearances.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter want to see the striker getting a fair chance at Anfield when he returns to the club:
