Five-star Reds Thrash Swindon In Cup

Five-star Liverpool cruised into the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup courtesy of a thumping 5-0 win against Swindon Town on Tuesday night.

The Reds were always in command and produced an exhibition of attacking football at its very best.

They took the lead on nine minutes when Jerome Sinclair cut inside, beat two defenders and saw his shot come back off the post, hit the unlucky goalkeeper Josh Helm and rebound into the net. Sinclair will claim the goal but the 'keeper had the final touch.

Jordon Ibe made it 2-0 after 23 minutes with a goal-of-the-month contender when he unleashed an unstoppable shot from 25 yards that flew into the back of the net.

Ibe then turned provider three minutes later when his pass found Jack Dunn, who slotted home for 3-0.

Dunn then added his second and Liverpool's fourth a minute before the break when he finished off a superb team move involving Sinclair and Kris Peterson.

Sinclair then made it 5-0 six minutes after the restart when he slotted home from close range after superb work from Peterson.

Dunn was denied a hat-trick when his late effort came back off the post.
