Kaide Gordon drew a comparison with Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah after he made his senior debut for the club on Tuesday night.
Teenage winger Gordon played the full 90 minutes of the Reds' 3-0 win at Norwich in the Carabao Cup.
The 16-year-old impressed on the right-wing - Salah's usual position under Jurgen Klopp.
And speaking on Sky Sports after the match, former Norwich striker Grant Holt admitted that he saw elements of Salah's game in Gordon.
Holt said: "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 Mane in those positions and you’ve someone like him looking at them, watching them, training round them, his pathways going to be great."
Gordon, who cost Liverpool £1.1m from Derby County in February, looked lively for much of the night at Carrow Road.
And his best chance to score came during one drive inside in the first half, but he could only fire wide after some fine work on the ball.

Gordon was one of only two teenagers to start against Norwich, with right-back Conor Bradley also featuring, while young Tyler Morton came on off the bench.
And Klopp spoke very highly of the trio at full-time.
“The kids did exceptionally well, I have to say," he beamed.
"All three physically really strong and that’s maybe the biggest surprise that they could go 94, 95 minutes. I’m really happy for them.
“Kaide is good, and has a lot of things to improve, a lot of things to settle, a lot of things to learn, but a lot of things are already there.
“We are really happy to have him around and we will treat him carefully. I’m really that he is here, he is a big talent.
“Conor Bradley, the first Northern Irish player since 1954, somebody should have told me before and I would have brought him in probably earlier! He played a super game.
“And Tyler as well. It was a big one for all three.
“The first thing that Kaide said to me after the game, when I wanted to say ‘congratulations’, he said ‘thank you!’.
“But there was nothing to be thankful about, he deserved it. It’s all fine, these boys are good and thank God they are ours.”Read More Read More
