Kaide Gordon will have impressed the Liverpool coaching staff with his contributions in the first-half of the Reds’ FA Cup meeting with Shrewsbury Town.
Receiving the ball from Conor Bradley deep in the opposition box, the youngster took the perfect first-touch and sent a defender running wide with his challenge before netting his effort neatly past Marko Marosi.
It’s a promising sign from the 17-year-old, particularly as concerns have been raised over the future of our forward line beyond Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
The Englishman has a long way to go, of course, before giving either a run for their money, but performances like this will hopefully keep him in first-team frame, which can only bode well for his long-term development.

That’s a lovely finish from Kaide Gordon
