Liverpool U21s Win, Striker Scores First Goal in 19 Months


Paul Glatzel Scores First Goal in 19 Months as Liverpool U21s Beat Wolves

Paul Glatzel scored his first goal in 19 months – and his first for Liverpool since 2021 – as he continued a return from long-term injury with the U21s.

The young Reds continued their solid start to the Premier League 2 season with a relatively routine home win over Wolves.

Goals: Hill 42′, Glatzel 66′

Glatzel’s first goal since a 3-0 win over Swindon while on loan at Tranmere was enough to seal all three points shortly after the hour-mark.

It gave Liverpool U21s their second victory of the week following their first-ever win in the EFL trophy on Tuesday against Morecambe.

First Half

The manager made three changes to the side that beat Morecambe 3-0 at the Mazuma Stadium, with Fabian Mrozek replacing Marcelo Pitaluga between the sticks.

Glatzel and Lewis Koumas were named up front, with the former sealing the victory with his decisive second-half strike.

The first half saw both sides create chances to break the deadlock, but neither were able to force the issue early on.

Liverpool U21s hit the front against Wolves when captain Tom Hill steered home a Koumas pass to make it 1-0 to the hosts after 42 minutes.

Second Half

The second half saw the intensity increase, with Mrozek being forced into an early save from Owen Hesketh after the interval.

Glatzel, who signed a new deal with the club during the summer following a string of injury issues, was on hand to double his side’s lead after 66 minutes as he latched on to a ball from Hill before driving the ball home.

Jay Spearing was once again introduced from the bench having made a cameo appearance against Morecambe as he continues to operate as a player-coach within Lewtas’ side.
