All that Ben Woodburn touches turns to gold right now. The Liverpool youngster continued his run of impressive form with a wonderful assist in the Under 19s Champions League on Wednesday afternoon.

Ben Woodburn was the talk of the town last season when he came off the bench in only his second game for Liverpool to score in the EFL Cup quarter final victory over Leeds United.

Later last term he became the third youngest player to start a Premier League match for the Anfield outfit and the future looked extremely bright for the teenager.

Despite being born in England the 17 year old from Chester chose to play for Wales and that choice paid off earlier this month when he came off the bench on his debut and scored the winner against Austria.

With all eyes being on his every move now it would be easy for him to shrink under the pressure but tonight in the under 19s Champions League against Sevilla he proved he's really one to keep an eye on:

Jurgen Klopp's side have been out of the Champions League for the past three years but qualified this season after finishing in the top four last term and then beat Hoffenheim in a qualifier last month.

As well as a return to the main competition it meant their under 19s team returned to their version of the competition and the youngster's group mirrors the group that Klopp's side must get past.

Klopp will be hoping that his side have as good a time as the under 19s as the youngsters were 3-0 up before half-time in their opening game of the UEFA Youth League.

Liverpool also face Sevilla in the opening of their Champions League campaign and the last time the pair met it was the Spanish side who came out on top in the Europa League final.

It won't be long till Woodburn is playing in Europe's elite club competition!
