Keep an eye out for Jayden Danns – he looks a talent who’s potentially going places in senior football.

The 18-year-old forward was lethal in his 27-minute cameo for Jurgen Klopp’s men, registering two goals against Championship outfit Southampton in the second-half.

Remarkably, it’s taken the teenager’s goals tally (2) higher than Manchester United’s £82m wide man Antony (1) across all goal competitions, as one X user noted, despite only playing 61 minutes’ worth of senior football.

Manchester United have some catching up to do

Look at the level of performance from Liverpool’s young stars and ask yourself the question: could Erik ten Hag’s men do the same?

The answer should be a resounding no.

In fairness, the Red Devils’ crop of youngsters – specifically the likes of Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund – do look to possess an intriguing degree of potential.

The fact players like Antony still aren’t really delivering – despite having played over 1,300 minutes of football this term – has to be a major concern.

Just goes to show how impressive Danns’ latest showing for the Reds is.
