The Liverpool teenager scored a cracker this week.

Liverpool youngster Ovie Ejaria scored an outstanding goal to help the Reds’ under-18 side to a 4-2 victory against West Bromwich Albion this week.

The 18-year-old can play as a centre forward or an attacking midfielder if required and his eye for goal is undeniable.

He is yet to score for Liverpool at under-21 level, having made five appearances to date, but back on under-18 duty he excelled, opening the scoring with a long-range curling effort that flew into the top corner.

It was a strike any player would be proud of and it is sure to have got the attention of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have a considerable amount of talented youngsters coming through their academy right now so their new boss has a tough task keeping track of them all, but when a player delivers a moment of magic like Ejaria did this week it certainly helps.

The senior side take on Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday but a day earlier it was a teenager who got Reds fans celebrating.
