Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has paid tribute to teenager Kaide Gordon after he came off the bench against Brentford.

The Reds claimed a comfortable 3-0 win in the end, but had to work hard to break down the Bees at first.

Fabinho headed Liverpool in front in the first half before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain converted Andrew Robertson’s cross.

Roberto Firmino then set up Takumi Minamino to make it 3-0, securing three points and a clean sheet.

There was a great moment on 82 minutes too, as winger Gordon was brought on for his Premier League debut.









We have already seen Gordon feature in the Liverpool first team, once in the FA Cup and once in the Carabao Cup.

The 17-year-old, signed from Derby County, has been making rapid progress since arriving at Liverpool last year.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both at the Africa Cup of Nations, Liverpool are lacking some depth in attack.

That means youngsters like Gordon have a chance to come on in certain games, and Jurgen Klopp felt confident enough to bring him off the bench against Brentford.

This was a glimpse of the future for Liverpool fans. There are so many questions about the futures of Salah and Mane, and Liverpool’s attack moving forward may look very different.

Gordon may only be a kid, but he is currently on a path to becoming a star at Liverpool and a regular in their front line.

With the Premier League debut now under Gordon’s belt, the teenager will be desperate for more – especially during AFCON.

After Sundays’ win, Liverpool star Alexander-Arnold – another player who emerged into the first team at a young age – took to Twitter to send a message.

Alexander-Arnold posted a photo alongside Gordon, stating just four words – ‘the future is bright’.

For Liverpool fans, it’s hard to argue against Alexander-Arnold there.
