Liverpool got their Premier League season up and running with a win over Norwich City at the weekend. The Reds beat the Canaries with a number of key stars absent. Some of these players featured in a behind closed doors friendly a day later. Twitter has reacted to a clip of Kaide Gordon scoring against Aston Villa in the friendly.
Kaide Gordon wonderkid
There is a lot of hype around Kaide Gordon and understandably so.
The youngster was given his senior debut at Derby County at just 16-years-old with Wayne Rooney recognising his almighty talent.
The versatile attacker joined the Reds in the January transfer window amid financial turmoil at Derby.
He impressed for the U18s in the second half of the season before netting on his debut for the U23s.
Since then he’s shone during pre-season with the first team, racking up a hefty amount of minutes in the senior side’s friendlies.
Kaide Gordon goal v Aston Villa
On Sunday the Reds played out a behind closed doors match against Premier League opposition.
This was an exercise to build up match fitness for players who have returned to the fold later on in the summer.
For instance the game was a great benefit for Thiago and Jordan Henderson with the pair playing 80 minutes each.
Neco Williams, Divock Origi, Curtis Jones and Kaide Gordon all scored against Aston Villa in the 4-1 win.
Fans have seen a clip of the goal and are already getting excited about the young man’s future.
