Jordan Henderson posts wordless reaction to Liverpool youngster’s huge career achievement this week

Liverpool picked up a vital win in the Champions League this week, after Joel Matip’s late goal secured a 2-1 victory against Ajax.

It was the Reds first outing since their disastrous 4-1 defeat at Napoli in the same competition.

Jurgen Klopp’s side needed to make a statement after a shaky start to the season.

Liverpool already find themselves six points off the top of the Premier League table.

Draws with Fulham and Crystal Palace, and a defeat to Manchester United have started raising some questions.

There are certainly some positives among these results, and one of those is the introduction of several young players to the first-team.

Fabio Carvalho has been brilliant since arriving from Fulham, and has already impressed teammate Roberto Firmino.

Bobby Clark has also made his first-team debut this season, coming on against Bournemouth.

However, 17-year-old Stefan Bajcetic has been the young player catching Liverpool fan’s eyes, and he made his Champions League debut on Tuesday.

The young Spaniard came on in the final minute of Liverpool’s clash with Ajax for fellow countryman Thiago.
