Birmingham City fans drool over Jude Bellingham’s performance vs Reading

Birmingham City made it four games unbeaten in the Championship with a dramatic win over Reading on Saturday afternoon, also ending a run of three straight 1-1 draws.

The Blues went in front when Michael Morrison turned the ball into his own net before Yakou Meite levelled things up on the stroke of half time.

Jeremie Bela restored the lead for Pep Clotet’s men and then became a provider, setting up Alvaro Gimenez two minutes from time to make it 3-1.

Though, the Royals managed another consolation goal in injury time as Lucas Joao stabbed home an effort late on.

Academy graduate Jude Bellingham has really started to cement his name amongst Clotet’s starting lineup, and it was the 16-year-old who set up their opener, leaving several supporters drooling over his performance.

‘Class,’ ‘absolute star,’ and ‘real deal’ were three phrases used to describe Bellingham’s showing while one made sure others knew that he was running rings around players twice his age.

The central midfielder even drew comparisons to a number of legends – firstly, club hero Bob Latchford who began his career at the club and then even Lionel Messi, who won his sixth Ballon d’Or just last week.

Per SofaScore, Bellingham had three shots at goal blocked, recorded three key passes and even won four tackles.

The rising starlet has made a total of 16 appearances in this second flight this season, starting 12 of them, leaving some fans rather worried about the prospect of losing him in the future.

Birmingham have seen plenty of youth prospects leave the club soon after their breakthrough. As one member of the St Andrew’s faithful mentions, Nathan Redmond and Demarai Gray are prime examples.

The victory sees the Blues edge closer towards the top end of the table with them now sitting four points from the playoff zone.

Next up is Queens Park Rangers where all eyes will surely be on Bellingham once again.

Meanwhile, could Birmingham City be looking at a replacement in a key area this January?
