Portsmouth were a good side Boyes at full back was badly out of his depth though and responsible for their equaliser.

Good game though.

So I know I've talked up this new RB/CB signing we made from Ajax, Ki-Jana Hoever on here a couple of times now, but he's just so, so good.

 

And don't get upset with me for saying this, I'm absolutely not saying he's as good, but he moves just like Van Dijk. He just has this languid, rangy style of running that looks resembles Virgil's. Maybe he'll be the one to replace him and slot in next to Gomez in 4-5 years. Just 16 but already training with the first team.

Liverpool U18s win Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup

Liverpool U18s won the Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup by coming from behind to beat Rapid Vienna 3-2 in Sunday's final, writes Sam Williams.

The young Reds travelled to Stuttgart to take part in the prestigious two-day indoor tournament and qualified for the semi-finals by advancing through the group stage on Saturday.

After losing 4-3 to Atlanta United in their opening pool match, Barry Lewtas' side responded strongly to register victories over VFB Stuttgart and FC Schalke 04.

Hosts Stuttgart were defeated 1-0 courtesy of Jack Walls, before strikes from Elijah Dixon-Bonner and Fidel O'Rourke saw off Schalke 2-1.

(There ought to be some reference here to the other two group games played on Sunday morning, a 1-1 draw with Hertha Berlin and a 4-2 defeat by Rapid in a game that was played after both teams had already qualified for the semi-finals, but clearly the offal can't get the staff - CV.)

Another German opponent, Bayern Munich, awaited in Sunday's last-four match, and Jake Cain netted decisively to book Liverpool's spot in the final with a 1-0 win.

Vienna opened the scoring in the showpiece game, but Abdi Sharif, O'Rourke and Remi Savage made it 3-1 to the young Reds, who then held on to claim the trophy after the Austrian outfit had pulled one back.

Atlanta Utd 4 LFC 3

It took us half the game to get going, then when we did we scored three goals in a hurry. Their winner was a classy looking goal. They lost four of their next five games and finished last in the tournament.

 

 

LFC 1 VFB Stuttgart 0

This seriously underestimates how well Jaros played, there were another ten saves that they could have shown, and we scored with our only shot on target.

 

 

LFC 2 Schalke 1

Two really well-taken goals, although the highlights disguise how much of the game we spent defending.

 

 

LFC 1 Hertha 1

Another game where we spent a long time on the back foot.

 

 

Rapid Vienna 4 LFC 2

Even allowing for the fact that both teams had already qualified for the semi-finals before it was played, they deserved to beat us, both in terms of tempo and technique; their second goal is a good example of how they used the walls as an 'extra team-mate' in a way that we never managed.

 

 

LFC 1 Bayern Munchen 0

Bayern in a semi-final? Never in doubt...

More seriously, we looked more defensively secure in the last 5 minutes here than in any of the other games.

 

 

LFC 3 Rapid Vienna 2

Earlier form reversed. Maybe we hadn't been at our best three hours before, maybe they just ran out of steam, or maybe it was down to us playing Fidel O'Rourke - the only specialist striker in the squad - for longer shifts, who can say?

Anyway, we won.

While we're waiting for Jug-Ears and the gang to make snide references to Turf Moor 2005, just time to point out that we're playing an Under-23 game tonight Vs. Spurs at Stevenage (no telly, obviously). Reportedly the team is :-  McKenzie-Lyle; Juanma, Johnston, Whelan, Masterson, N. Williams, Coyle, Randall, Chirivella, Duncan, Millar. Subs : Atherton, R. Williams, McAuley, Glatzel.

15 minutes gone, no score so far.

Coyle on the mark as U23s earn Tottenham draw

 

Liam Coyle was on the mark as Liverpool U23s played out a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League 2 encounter at Stevenage on Monday night, writes Steve Hunter.

With a number of regulars in action for the first XI at Wolves such as Curtis Jones, Rafael Camacho and Ki-Jana Hoever, Neil Critchley fielded a young side with Bobby Duncan making his first start at U23 level in attack. There was also the welcome return to action of Connor Randall, who has been sidelined since September with a fractured cheekbone.

After a goalless opening half, the home side took the lead on 49 minutes through Kazaiah Sterling. However, Critchley’s side gave a good account of themselves and deservedly levelled on 65 minutes courtesy of Coyle’s fine effort from outside the box.

Reflecting on the draw, Critchley told Liverpoolfc.com: “It was an even first half with not many clear-cut chances. In the second half at times we had to defend in numbers and show our resilience which we did. Our honesty and endeavour was brilliant and that was very pleasing.”

Liverpool U23s: McKenzie-Lyle, N Williams, Juanma, Masterson, Johnston, Whelan, Coyle (R Williams, 83), Randall, Millar, Chirivella, Duncan (McAuley, 65).

The team that was shown on that now-deleted graphic above was :

Jaros; Walls, Larouci, R. Williams, Savage, Clarkson, Cain, Sharif, Longstaff, Glatzel, O'Rourke.

Subs : B. Williams, Brookwell, Dixon-Bonner, Bearne

 

Half an hour gone, still 0-0; Sunderland have barely been in our half, but we haven't made the most of the possession, particularly our set-pieces.

We've been well on top but can't find the goal we deserve.

Halftime still 0-0.

We're still the only team attacking; Glatzel had the best chance of the game so far with a let-foot volley from 15 yards out a minute before the break that the keeper did well to palm away.

Liverpool 1 Sunderland 0

 

Deadlock broken. Luis Longstaff with a good right footed finish opens the scoring. 

 

A short corner from Clarkson finds Longstaff in the 18 yard box, he shapes as to shoot with his stronger left foot before shifting the ball to his right foot and whipping in an effort at the keepers' near post.

Glatzel denied by their keeper one-on-one in stoppage time, and then Bearne just couldn't reach a Sharif cross for what would have been a tap-in.

Full time 1-0; Liverpool, top of the league.

Sunderland had not a single shot on goal.

The scoreline doesn't reflect our dominance.

Full time - Liverpool 1 Sunderland

 

Sunderland proved a tough side to break down, but we made 1 chance count to get the 3 points that we fully deserved.
