Samed Yesil is in line to make his Liverpool debut against Young Boys this Thursday in the Europa League.

Liverpool’s weekend clash against Manchester United means that several first-team stars will be rested on Thursday evening in Switzerland, paving the way for players like Yesil to make their mark.

The 18-year-old striker moved to Merseyside from Bayern Leverkusen during the summer and Brendan Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: ”

“Yesil will certainly be fast-tracked,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“He will be involved in the Europa League game.

“I watched him play against England Under-19s during the international break and he scored two terrific goals and set up another.”

Raheem Stirling has led the latest Liverpool academy prospects and earned himself an England call-up by Roy Hodgson.

“The biggest thing for young players now is that the introduction of Raheem has given even the seven- and eight-year olds the one thing in life you want – hope.

“Every young academy player, every parent or guardian has got hope that a young player will play at Liverpool.

“I saw it last week after moving a lot of the young players up to Melwood with it being international week. You could see it in their attitude. They had a spring in their step.

“They feel that they have got a chance and they will get that. There is nothing better than when you see a young kid come through. There will be that chance for Yesil and one or two other boys over these period of months now.”
