Harry Wilson continued his marvellous scoring form on Saturday to help Derby County towards a 2-1 win at home to Swansea City.
The Liverpool loanee put the Rams ahead on the half hour mark when he allowed the ball to run across him before rifling a stunning 25-yard strike beyond a helpless Erwin Mulder between the sticks.
He doubled his and Derby’s tally 10 minutes later with a clinical finish after picking up the ball in a central position and driving towards the edge of the box.
An 87th minute Fikayo Tomori own goal made for a nervy finish, but Frank Lampard’s men managed to see out the win to move level on 34 points with fourth-placed West Brom, fifth-placed Nottingham Forest and sixth-placed Sheffield United.
Wilson’s brace made it four goals in three games for the Welshman, adding to his superb free-kick in the midweek defeat to Stoke City and his crisp volley in last weekend’s win over Sheffield Wednesday.
Here’s a look at his opener…

The 21-year-old has now scored eight goals across all competitions for his temporary employers, following up his seven goals and four assists in 13 Championship outings for Hull City over the second half of last season.
He continues to make his presence felt in English football’s second tier in view of again fighting for senior opportunities at Liverpool upon his return to Melwood next summer.
Wilson was rewarded for his development with a new long-term contract at Anfield prior to his move to Pride Park, with Jurgen Klopp evidently a huge admirer of the academy graduate.
Continue providing the kind of figures he is lately and Wilson will get every chance to vie for a first team future with the Reds.
