How good is this kid…?!
Ovie Ejaria started for Liverpool tonight against Leeds in the EFL Cup and after 27 minutes, he’s already one of the biggest Twitter trends in the country.
So much so, we’re writing an article on it – because the reaction has been huge!
Not only does he ooze confidence, but he’s physically imposing and possesses a fantastic passing range. Early on, he slipped Gini Wijnaldum through perfectly and has played a succession of slick balls into his attackers since.
What’s great about Ejaria is that he can beat a player on either side in the middle as he isn’t afraid to use his weaker left foot. He has the ability to pass and move into space immediately so he always provides his team-mates an option – just what Jurgen Klopp demands of a ‘brave’ footballer.
At 19, the world is at Ejaria’s feet. Let’s hope he can continue impressing when given an opportunity, because this guy is a future first-teamer.
Close by Wijnaldum. Take a look at the pass by Ejaria. pic.twitter.com/MjlrQDCeCs

Ejaria is a dab away from costing £89 million

Ovie Ejaria’s passing range is a new form of nuclear fission. Splits everything.

Really rate Ejaria, think he’s going to become a world class player if he keeps working hard and avoids injury #LIVLEE

The control and passing range Ejaria has for his age is fantastic.

Watching Ejaria is like watching a black Modric dictate midfield
