Henrik Larsson's son Jordan continued his excellent season by netting twice as Spartak Moscow battered Tambov 5-1 in the Russian Premier League

📷 Jordan Larsson: Match Performance

The 23-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the past where his dad is now a coach, now has eight goals and four assists for the season in just 17 appearances.

⏱️ 23' His first goal was a special finish, running across the front of the defender to whip his shot into the top corner, giving the goalkeeper absolutely no chance.

⏱️ 83' And with Tambov threatening to get back into the contest in the closing stages, he bundled the ball over the line from close range to seal the points.

And it was Larsson's direct run through the centre of the Tambov defence which led to a shot being saved and let Ezequiel Ponce force the ball into the net from close range.

In his 84 minutes on the pitch Larsson had a huge eight attempts on goal, hitting the target with five of them as well as touching the ball 11 times in the opposition penalty area.

Larsson: What Next?

Larsson could well start to pick up transfer rumours again if he continues to produce performances like this. There's more than a little bit of his father in the nature of his finishing and it's worth watching this space.
