This week Liverpool cruised into the fourth round of the EFL Cup with a decisive win over Norwich City. The Reds handed out a couple of senior debuts and the youngsters impressed. Liverpool fans have reacted to Kaide Gordon v Norwich City.
Norwich 0-3 Liverpool
Jürgen Klopp named a thoroughly changed starting lineup to face Norwich City in the cup.
Curtis Jones was reintroduced whilst Kaide Gordon and Conor Bradley made their senior bows.
It was Takumi Minamino who opened the scoring; in the opening minutes the Japan international seized on a loose ball from a corner, swivelling before firing low past the keeper from close in.
In the second half Divock Origi netted shortly after the resumption. A fine ball from Kostas Tsimikas found the Belgian with the striker gently heading into the far corner.
The scoring was rounded off by Taki when he kept his cool in the opposition box to shove the ball past the keeper.
Kaide Gordon makes Liverpool debut v Norwich
One of the stories of the night concerned the Reds’ boy wonder.
Kaide Gordon made his Liverpool debut v Norwich City at just 16-years-old.
The teenager started on the right wing and looked tremendously bright in spells.
He didn’t get the ball often enough in truth but when he came looking for it and he ran with it you could tell the boy is the business.
In the second half he skipped past a challenge as he drove into the opposition half before finding Divock Origi, it was all the evidence we needed.
It’s safe to say fans are excited about his future.
