Liverpool fans react to Woodburn’s record-breaking goal

Liverpool fans witnessed their side continue an excellent start to the season last night as they saw off Leeds United at Anfield to seal their spot in the semi-finals of the League Cup, a competition they finished runners-up in last term.

On a night where Liverpool excelled once more, Anfield got a new name to get excited about after 17-year-old academy graduate Ben Woodburn became Liverpool’s youngest-ever goalscorer with an 81st minute strike against the Peacocks.

Breaking a record previously held by Michael Owen, Woodburn’s had only made his first-team debut at the weekend against Sunderland, with a 60 second cameo after replacing Georginio Wijnaldum deep into injury time.

The teenager’s performance understandably sent social media awash as fans started to discuss the next highly-rated talent to break into the first-team, as they debated what the future could hold for the youngster.

With plenty of games left to play this season, it’s unlikely that we’ve seen the last of Woodburn and, with performances like yesterday’s, he cannot be overlooked by Jurgen Klopp.
