    Joe Gelhardt nets stunning brace as Leeds U23s trounce Liverpool

    Video: Highly-regarded Gelhardt nets remarkable long-range brace as Leeds U23s trounce Liverpool

     

    Footage of a pair of the goals netted during the U23 clash between Leeds United and Liverpool has turned heads online over the last 24 hours.

    Reds run riot

    Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team squad of course faced off with Liverpool a little over a week ago.

    Aiming to get back on track on the back of a less than impressive opening to the campaign, the Whites welcomed Jurgen Klopp’s men to Anfield for a Premier League showdown.

    When all was said and done in Yorkshire, though, Leeds’ woes only mounted, en route to a deserved 3-0 defeat.

    Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane were all on target, amid a frankly miserable afternoon for all associated with the Peacocks.

    Gelhardt strike the pick of the bunch

    One major concern highlighted on the back of not only Leeds’ loss to Liverpool, but across the early weeks of the season as a whole, has of course come in the form of the lack of squad depth at the disposal of Marcelo Bielsa.

    Amid a dismal stretch of luck on the personnel front – which has seen the likes of Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Jack Harrison all miss time for one reason or another – the Whites’ squad has been stretched to its limit.

    In turn, disjointed, underwhelming displays have followed, with Leeds, as a result, sitting just a point clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

    As outlined above, though, if Bielsa so chooses, he could do worse than attempting to reinforce the first-team ranks at Elland Road from within.

    This comes with the club’s U23 side having showcased their impressive talents this past weekend, in a meeting with none other than Liverpool.

    Mark Jackson’s men, a little over 24 hours ago, made the trip to the Axa Training Centre, for a Premier League 2 meeting with their Reds’ counterparts.

    And, when all was said and done, to say that the clash proved one-sided would be something of an understatement.

    A Leeds outfit boasting the talents of Lewis Bate, Kristoffer Klaesson, Charlie Cresswell and suspended first-team star Pascal Struijk climbed up to 4th in the Premier League 2 table, courtesy of a dominant 4-0 win.

    Amari Miller and the aforementioned Struijk were amongst the goalscorers, but it was another who went on to steal the headlines on Merseyside.

    The player in question? Joe Gelhardt.

    Striker Gelhardt, held in high regard in West Yorkshire, netted Leeds’ first and fourth of the day amid a Man of the Match display. Both, meanwhile, came in absolutely spectacular fashion, as showcased in the footage below:
