Watch: Liverpool fans react on Twitter to fantastic goal from Under-23s starlet v Everton
By Alex Stevens
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to celebrate the goal from Brooks Lennon in their Under-23s match against city rivals Everton.
Lennon scored his second goal for the Under-23s with a beautiful header and fans are already saying that he’s a name to watch in the future.
The 19-year-old American striker – who also plays for the USA Under-20s – joined Liverpool in the summer of 2015 from Real Salt Lake City Academy.
Scoring against Everton is one of the best ways to ingratiate yourself with the Liverpool fans and Lennon will have enjoyed today’s goal.

Everton are currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League 2 table with six wins from seven games.
Liverpool are five points back in fourth and a win today will take them into second place in the table behind their Merseyside rivals.
That’s looking likely with the current score at 2-0 after Harry Wilson added a second for the Under-23s.
