Sky pundit reacts on Twitter to Liverpool win; shares delight for Sheyi Ojo

Liverpool defeated Stoke City 4-1 this weekend.

Sky Sports Soccer Saturday pundit Neil Mellor took to social media site Twitter in order to share his delight for Sheyi Ojo as he featured during Liverpool’s crushing 4-1 victory over Stoke City.

The Reds made a number of changes for the Premier League encounter with the Potters, with boss Jurgen Klopp clearly having one eye on their upcoming Europa League clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Yet it did not make much of a difference to the outcome, as Liverpool dominated the visitors from the off and created numerous chances as Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi (2) all netted.

Writing on Twitter after the game, Mellor was impressed with his former side and made special reference to Ojo who the pundit believes has an extremely bright future in the game.

Ojo joined Liverpool from MK Dons when he was only 14, a deal which attracted a lot of attention.

The now 18-year-old began playing for the Liverpool youth teams before enjoying spells at Wigan Athletic and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship on loan.

Likened to fellow wingers Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe, Ojo made his first start for the Reds in the Premier League against Stoke and he did not disappoint as he looked lively and confident.

The England under-19 international made one key pass, one successful take-on and one assist before coming off at half-time for two-goal hero Divock Origi in a tactical change.
