Bobby Duncan’s stunning late winner against former club proving promise for Liverpool

Having joined from Manchester City in the summer, Bobby Duncan set out for Liverpool under 18s with a point to prove on Saturday as he faced his former club.

He did just that with an injury time winner to make it 1-0 and gift his team a crucial win as he continues to live up to the hype and justify Liverpool’s long pursuit of Steven Gerrard’s cousin.

The victory came to protect Liverpool’s unbeaten run to date this season, with Duncan proving fundamental to his team’s incredible form.

The winner was his eighth strike of the campaign too, further fueling excitement on Merseyside surrounding a player who is rated by many as one of the brightest young talents in the English game.

 

His clinical finishing and impressive movement off the ball have made him a deadly threat for the Reds in his first few months at the club.

He is clearly still some way off the first team, but if his youth team form is anything to go by then it may only be a matter of time before he is on the fringes of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
