We remember during the summer at the beginning of this season that we genuinely thought Marko Grujic could/would be a starter this term…
The Serb was tremendous during our pre-season friendlies and seemed to have both the physical and technical attributes to take the Premier League by storm.
But sadly, injuries have decimated his campaign and he’s really been stuck in the Under-23s when fit.
Last night though, the 21-year-old performed expertly in our Under-23 Merseyside Derby win over Everton and assisted Trent Alexander-Arnold’s goal beautifully…
Fans took to Twitter in praise of Grujic, hopefully that next season might be his for the taking…

I’m pretty certain Grujic will be a fucken monster.

Excited to see how Grujic and TAA get on next season. Should be breakthrough seasons for the both of them.

What about a middle 3 of Can, Lallana and Grujic next game to spice things up?
