Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson has stood out as a bright talent in their academy for years.

Now he is getting a chance to show what he can do out on loan at Derby County.

The results are pretty impressive.

 

Wilson is a huge threat in Derby's attack, and can boast seven goals in 15 Championship games.

His spectacular free-kick in the Carabao Cup against Manchester United takes his tally to eight.

The goals are frequently eye catching, he has won the Rams' goal in the month competition three times in a row.

Wilson is showing he has a bright future, beyond Derby County.

He is a future Liverpool player, and he is one who could improve the first team right now.

Wilson would offer more than Adam Lallana currently is, and in time he can make summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri an afterthought.

The Swiss star has been fantastic since signing for Liverpool from Stoke in the summer.

He has proved his doubters wrong and is a very useful attacking option for Jurgen Klopp.

If Wilson carries on his own trajectory, in time he will phase Shaqiri out.

That is not a slight on the summer signing, but a compliment to how good Wilson can become.
