Norwich hero Holt: Gordon similar to Liverpool star Salah

Former Norwich City striker Grant Holt has likened Liverpool whizkid Kaide Gordon to Mohamed Salah.

Gordon was among the youngsters to start Liverpool's 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Norwich City on Tuesday night.

16-year-old Gordon played the full 90 minutes, as well as Caoimhin Kelleher and Conor Bradley, while Tyler Morton also played a part at Carrow Road.

Holt said on Sky Sports: "His movements, the way he moves, he's a bit like Mo Salah the way he goes down the line, he can take you inside, he can take you outside.

"He's got that movement about him, if you're in a football club like Liverpool and you've got Salah and [Sadio] Mane in those positions and you've someone like him looking at them, watching them, training round them, his pathways going to be great."
