Anthony Gordon can't stop scoring in Premier League 2 for David Unsworth's Everton U23s.

Everton youngster Anthony Gordon is used to turning heads at Finch Farm and new signing Fabian Delph appears to have taken the young striker under his wing, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

Just two games into his Toffees career, two-time Premier League winner and England international Delph has been praised for his impact both on and off the pitch.

The former Manchester City ace is a natural-born leader and his experience and professionalism should make him an invaluable role-model to a number of Everton’s most exciting young talents.

 

Gordon, a striker who has four goals in three Premier League 2 games so far this season, is certainly one of those. The Liverpool-born 18-year-old is expected to follow in the footsteps of Tom Davies sooner rather than later and he has already caught the eye of one of Everton’s senior stars.

"If someone has their head in the right place and wants to learn and I can five them some advice, I will. Gords's head is in the right place, he is a very talented guy and I love talking to him,” Delph said.

"Any information I can pass on is a blessing for me."

Gordon, who can play anywhere across the front-line, played 14 games as David Unsworth’s U23s won the Premier League 2 title for the second time in three seasons in May.

The teenager signed a new contract until 2023 earlier in the summer too, a real coup when you consider that Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund had all shown an interest in luring him away from Merseyside, according to The Mail.
