IF IT’S GOALS FROM over 40 yards you’re into, then this strike from Liverpool v Manchester City under 21s is for you.

Adam Morgan may not be a class deep-lying midfield in the Xabi Alonso mould, but the prolific striker has proved he can certainly ping the ball accurately over long-distances like the departed Spaniard.

The 19-year-old made his senior debut in the Europa League last season and could feature in tomorrow’s eagerly anticipated Capital One Cup tie against Manchester United.
