Liverpool have found their left-sided talent as Mateusz Musialowski scores again

Mateusz Musialowski can give Liverpool what they need as he scores again for the Reds’ Under 23s. The teenager had a birthday to remember.

Mateusz Musialowski turned 18 on Saturday as he started for Liverpool Under 23s. The Reds took on Arsenal in Premier League 2 and had a match to be proud of.

Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners and Musialowski grabbed the opener. That’s his third goal at Premier League 2 level and his third in three games.

Not bad at all for an 18-year-old still finding his feet in this age group. But Musialowski just continues to grow his reputation as one to watch at Liverpool’s academy.

Last season was fantastic, of course, but did come at Under 18 level. The step up to U23 can feel massive for certain players and Musialowski is taking a little time to find his feet.

But this is encouraging – Liverpool might have exactly what their group of young players needs.

Musialowski scores again

Liverpool have an outstanding selection of youth players right now – it may be the most exciting we’ve seen at the club.

Caoimhin Kelleher is still only 22 and, as a goalkeeper, there’s a long time before his prime. Even now, though, he’s proving good enough for Premier League level.

Neco Williams has long had a senior place, of course, while Conor Bradley could be something special at right-back, too. Tyler Morton impressed in midfield against Norwich City last month, while Curtis Jone and Harvey Elliott are already brilliant options.

Then there’s Kaide Gordon. The 17-year-old feels like the next big thing on Liverpool’s right flank and, reportedly, is one of the reasons the Reds didn’t replace Xherdan Shaqiri.

It’s nearly time to be seriously hyped for Oakley Cannonier as a striker, too. He just can’t stop scoring for the U18s and may become something very special.

The brilliant thing is that Liverpool can fit just about all of these players into one team. There is a gap in this young XI, however, on the left flank.

But it appears that Musialowski could become the future on the left. He played there with some regularity for the U18s but split his time with central roles. For the U23s, though, the Polish talent is excelling specifically from the left.

So while Liverpool celebrate Gordon as their future on the right, we should perhaps think the same of Musialowski on the left. If all goes well – or simply continues as it is – we really could see those two line up in the same first-team XI someday.
