Take a bow, Yan Dhanda!
Liverpool’s teenage starlet scored a real peach of goal in last night’s U23 humbling of Chelsea at Anfield.
Dhanda, who has Indian heritage, scored a penalty as well, but this goal, which made it 5-1 on the night, was something special.
Getting the ball in an inside left position, much like Coutinho used to, Dhanda dribbled towards goal before getting the ball back from overlapping fullback Juanma.
Dhanda got the ball out of his feet and curled it into the far corner with exquisite precision.

Dhanda turns 20 this year, so it’s likely he’ll feature in Jurgen Klopp’s pre-season plans if the German sees any future for him in the first-team.
He’s very talented, but at an elite level, attackers need to regularly contribute goals and assists, even from wide positions.
