Liverpool beat Everton in the Under-18s mini Merseyside derby on Saturday afternoon.
Trey Nyoni struck a 96th-minute winner at The Academy in Kirkby after Jayden Danns had cancelled out Martin Sherif's early opener for the Blues. The ECHO was on hand to provide analysis of the victory against the Blues.
If an attacking tactic is obvious at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, it is the importance of the wide forwards.
While Klopp is able to call upon the likes of Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz in the senior set-up, there is also the likes of Ben Doak and Kaide Gordon vying to make the grade for the long term.

Liverpool stun Everton with dramatic 96th minute winner from new signing in derby
Even further down the chain, Trent Kone-Doherty and Ranel Young are two more flanksmen who are taking their tentative steps towards a long-term career in the game. The pair were impressive here in this entertaining mini derby on Saturday morning.
Kone-Doherty was an integral part of an electric frontline in the UEFA Youth League last term alongside Doak and Oakley Cannonier. Young Scot Doak might now be rubbing shoulders with Salah and co on the fringes of the first team but Irish winger Kone-Doherty continues to learn his trade with the youth sides.
With three goals and as many goals this season prior to kick-off, Kone-Doherty entered this one in fine form and once more displayed typical winger traits; driving at the Everton defence with intent. One strong run in the first half brought a shooting chance for Afolama Onahuga while the young Blues tried to double up as often as they could to limit the impact of the ex-Derry City fledgling.
