One to watch 

Striker, Liam Delap.

Having already made his first team debut and scoring in it, Delap may be a name that rings a bell amongst football fans. Many will remember his Dad, Rory who gave many a team nightmares with his long throw.

Liam Delap’s first team Manchester City first team debut was a dream one, having scored in the 18th minute against AFC Bournemouth in the EFL Cup. Three days later, he made his Premier League debut against Leicester City, coming on as a substitute for Fernandinho.
