Armstrong leads the way as Liverpool, Newcastle, Norwich young guns continue to excite at Coventry

On-loan Coventry City pair Adam Armstrong and Jacob Murphy continue to thrill at Ricoh Arena, with Armstrong's sixth goal of the season giving the Sky Blues a 1-0 win over Chesterfield at the weekend.

Norwich City young gun Murphy provided the assist for Armstrong to score the only goal of the game, which lifted Coventry to 4th on the League One table after eight games. Fellow loanee, 18-year-old Ryan Kent from Liverpool, also made his debut in the match.

Coventry boss Tony Mowbray heaped praise on the trio after the game.

“They are starting to gel together and when they do they can be a frightening proposition for some teams in this league," Mowbray told the Coventry Telegraph.

Adam Armstrong was feeling it after not scoring for three or four games and he shouldn't have that pressure on him at 18 years of age.

“Ryan showed everybody what an exciting talent he can be and Jacob was outstanding. If you saw his last game you wouldn't think he was capable of a performance like that but there you go."
