Liverpool have released a package of the U23s’ top 10 goals of 2017, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Rhian Brewster among those to feature.

The young Reds enjoyed a productive year in 2017, finishing third in Division 1 of Premier League 2 last term with hopes of another challenge this season.

Their placing in the table is far from paramount for Neil Critchley‘s youngsters, though, with performances and development key as they push for promotion to the first team.

And the club’s countdown of the top 10 goals scored by the Liverpool U23s last year highlights some hugely promising attacking talent.

The finishing ability of 17-year-old striker Brewster, now a World Cup winner with the England U17s, takes pride of place, with the youngster featuring three times.

Alexander-Arnold, who is now a regular at senior level, takes up two spots, with his powerful finish against Everton in May at No. 5.

Ben Woodburn, Harry Wilson, Yan Dhanda and Ovie Ejaria are among those also included, with the latter’s solo effort against Newcastle United in November particularly impressive.

Critchley is leading a strong group of youngsters at Kirkby, and with Jurgen Klopp eager to call upon the Reds’ vast potential at academy level, they are set for a bright future.

But the German has stressed he won’t rush Brewster into the fold despite his excellent youth displays.

“As we understand it, we are the future of Rhian Brewster. He is part of the future of Liverpool,” he explained this month.

“Rhian is a fantastic boy on a fantastic way. We all love him and he will get his opportunities but I will not do it just to let him smell a little bit of the Anfield air.”
