Right now, he is best known for being Rory Delap’s son, but Man City teenager Liam is certainly making a name for himself on his own.

Delap Sr. is a Premier League icon for his legendary long throws, which personified the dogged and determined nature of Stoke under Tony Pulis back in the day.

Delap – son of thorw-in legend Rory – scored on his City debut

But Rory’s teenage son – still just 17 – propelled himself into the history books by making an immediate impact on his debut in City’s 2-1 Carabao Cup victory against Bournemouth.

With just 18 minutes played, the striker latched onto a fine through ball from Phil Foden and thrashed a fierce a left-footed shot into the top corner to give his side the lead.

Not a bad way to break onto the scene.

After Sam Surridge cancelled out Delap’s opener, City brought big guns Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling off the bench in the latter stages and they eventually snatched victory on 75 minutes when Foden struck after Riyad Mahrez hit the post.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who are bidding for a record-equalling eighth League Cup win and a fourth in succession, will now travel to Burnley in the fourth round next week.
