Report: Injury-time Virtue winner settles U23s thriller

24th April 2017

Matty Virtue’s injury-time winner earned Liverpool U23s a thrilling 3-2 victory over Manchester City in Premier League 2 at Prenton Park on Monday night.

A hugely entertaining contest between two impressive teams was eventually settled in the young Reds’ favour thanks to substitute Virtue’s last-gasp strike, which came at the end of a swift breakaway just moments after Joe Gomez had headed a shot off the goalline at the other end.

Ben Woodburn’s brace put Mike Garrity’s side 2-1 up after City’s Paolo Fernandes had opened the scoring with a penalty in the 19th minute of an end-to-end first half.

Isaac Buckley-Ricketts pulled the visitors level late on, but Virtue had the final say to seal a win that means Liverpool could finish above City in second place in the table should they take three points from their final game of the season, which comes on May 8 against champions Everton at Goodison Park.
