Kaide Gordon misses u23 game - will he face Brentford tomorrow?

Liverpool fans believe that Kaide Gordon could be involved for the Reds against Brentford tomorrow after they spotted a big clue.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will take on the Bees in their sixth game of the Premier League season.

Thomas Frank’s men have had a decent start to life in the top tier themselves, so it will not be an easy game for Liverpool.

Especially with some big injury worries in the camp. Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, Thiago and Harvey Elliott will all miss the trip.

So, Klopp will have to rely on youngsters to fill the squad. One player that looks likely to be involved is Kaide Gordon.

He was absent for the u23 side in tonight’s dramatic 4-3 loss to Chelsea.

Liverpool went 1-0 up through Owen Beck before Chelsea drew level heading into halftime. Mateusz Musialowski then bagged an impressive brace in the space of three minutes to take Barry Lewtas’ side 3-1 up.

However, the Blues came back and drew level after 74 minutes. They then won the game with a Lewis Hall goal in the 95th minute to break Liverpool hearts.

This means that the mini Reds have lost their last three games, with just one win all season.

While the likes of Conor Bradley, Tyler Gordon and James Balagizi, who were all with the senior squad for the League Cup win during the week, all started, there was no sign of Gordon.

So, we are among the many that believe that he may be involved in the Brentford game tomorrow.

We have heard nothing of an injury to Gordon, so the only logical explanation to him not playing tonight would be if he is in the squad tomorrow.

He was very impressive against Norwich during the week. One thing for sure is that he doesn’t play like he is just 16.

Perhaps that is why he has been labelled as the “best 16-year-old in England”.

With all the injuries, it should not be a surprise to see him in the squad.

In fact, it could hint that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be in line for a start in midfield. That would leave Curtis Jones and James Milner as midfield cover, with Gordon, Taki Minamino and Divock Origi as attacking cover.

If he does get on the pitch, Gordon would be the third-youngest Premier League debutant in Liverpool history. At 16 years and 11 months, only Jack Robinson and Harvey Elliott would be younger.

We would love to see him get some minutes. We are a big believer that the more minutes young players can get at the top level the better.

As long as he keeps his feet on the ground, it would be a great experience.
