Liverpool U-21’s defeated Leicester City U-21’s 7-1 this afternoon at Liverpool’s AXA training centre.
Arthur Melo started his first competitive game since September and played the full 90 mins during the remarkable win. Youngster Ben Doak was sensational as he scored 2 goals and assisted 3 others, creating 5 of the 7 goals scored.
Arthur sustained a thigh injury in October that required surgery, severally curtailing the impact the Brazilian was hoping to have at Anfield during his season-long loan from Juventus.
Ben Doak has managed 2 appearances for the Liverpool first team this season. The Scotsman stood out with his quick feet and technical ability on the ball.
Liverpool U-21’s are now 3rd in Premier League 2 after 19 games.
