Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair thinks he is making a habit of scoring against Manchester United, following his strike in the 1-1 draw with the Red Devils in an Under-21 Premier League Division 1 match last night.

The 19-year-old, who also found the back of the net against Manchester United last season, when he scored past Victor Valdes in a 2-1 league loss in January 2015, gave his side a 50th minute lead at Prenton Park.

But Liverpool failed to protect their advantage as James Weir’s goal 18 minutes from time enabled Manchester United to return home with a point.

And Sinclair, who admitted that it is always tough to play against Manchester United, however, insisted that his side were unlucky not to come out with a win against their arch-rivals.

“I think I’ve made it a little bit of a habit to score against United”, he said on LFC TV.


“But it’s all about the team, when you play United, you know you’re going to come up against some top players.

“The boys did well tonight, and we were unlucky not to get a win.”

Sinclair, who joined Liverpool’s youth academy from West Bromwich Albion in 2011, has thus far made five senior appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside giants, scoring once.
