Sheyi Ojo scored a wonder goal to clinch Liverpool win over Exeter

By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens

Sheyi Ojo impressed on his second consecutive Premier League start for Liverpool on Sunday – and fans could not contain their excitement on Twitter.

Ojo oozed class as he played the full 90 minutes in the Merseysiders’ 2-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium as an experimental visitors’ team secured their fourth win in five Premier League matches.

The 18-year-old winger had marked his full debut in the 4-1 triumph over Stoke last weekend with a brilliant piece of skill before crossing to set up a goal for Daniel Sturridge.

Ojo shone once again on the south coast as he repaid the faith of manager Jurgen Klopp with another display full of ambition and penetration, including one jaw-dropping piece of skill in the first half when he slalomed past two Bournemouth defenders before being denied a goal only by a fine save.

Liverpool supporters were impressed by the display from the teenager.

Liverpool’s victory lifts them to 51 points and cements eighth position in the Premier League table, although they will climb to sixth if they win the game in hand they have over Southampton and West Ham.

Klopp made 10 changes from Thursday’s momentous Europa League win over Borussia Dortmund, with Roberto Firmino the only player keeping his place in the team.

The Brazilian put the visitors ahead with his ninth Premier League goal of the season following an audacious Daniel Sturridge back-heel, and the creator then became finisher with his sixth goal in seven league starts.
