(Video) Brooks Lennon highlights v Nottingham Forest displays something Liverpool really lack

Posted by

Liverpool’a academy starlet Brooks Lennon is absolutely rapid!

The American was poached from Real Salt Lake in 2015, and now aged 18, is a key player in Liverpool’s Academy.

Earlier in the week he played a starring role in our FA Youth Cup victory over Nottingham Forest, which saw us progress to the quarters with a 2-1 win.

Lennon assisted Herbie Kane’s goal brilliantly, but displayed sheer pace and running throughout. He’s slight, but his running style looks similar to a young Michael Owen’s, before he got all injured and Man. United.

Liverpool’s first-team is currently crying out for pace in attack, but in Lennon, Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Kent – we have a number of speedy teenagers waiting to make their mark.

If James Milner and Adam Lallana continue to provide so little excitement on the flanks, we might see a youngster get a chance – off the bench at least – sooner rather than later.
