Liverpool forward Samed Yesil continued his recovery from a long-term injury by playing for the Under-21 side on Thursday evening.
The 20-year-old started the Under-21 Premier League game against the Everton Under-21 team at Goodison Park.
The Reds won the encounter 3-1, thanks to a brace from Ryan Kent and a late penalty from Sheyi Ojo - a match which was attended by first-team star Emre Can, as reported by The Liverpool Echo's James Pearce.
It was a pretty comfortable evening for Liverpool, but Yesil was far from his best despite showing some promising signs.
The German forward was taken off in the second half for Ojo, who then proved to be a key player in the win.
Yesil had a very good chance when he played a one-two and marched into the Everton penalty box, but his effort from close range at the near post left much to be desired.
Signed from Bayer Leverkusen in 2012, Yesil has been effectively out of action for two years with injury.
It will understandably take the youngster some time to get into the groove of things, but Liverpool fans seem pleased with the progress he is making at the moment.
Following the win against Everton on Thursday, Liverpool fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Yesil.
Below are the best reactions:
I think Liverpool will do better with Ryan Kent or Samed Yesil upfront for the remaining of the season, there's nothing more to lose. #LFC— Mc Chidi© (@McChidi1) April 30, 2015
Samed Yesil... Watch this space! Gonna be a class ayer #LFC— JoshIreson. (@joshireson7) April 30, 2015
Since Top 4 is out of the question, I don't see why Brendan doesn't give Yesil a chance or Sinclair whats the worst that can happen...#LFC— Johnathon Wilson (@johnnywilson93) April 30, 2015
I would give Yesil a run next year. And probably that's why I am not managing Liverpool at the moment.— The ArmChair Analyst (@WeHaveBalotelli) April 30, 2015
it is absolutely crucial for Liverpool to keep Samed Yesil fit and not injured, he has the potential to be up there with the best— Lathan (@JordanCCFC17) April 30, 2015
