Liverpool teenager Sheyi Ojo made his first start in months for the under-21s yesterday after his loan spell at Wigan.
The 17-year-old came off the bench for the Reds last Thursday night against Everton, scoring a penalty.
On Monday he was selected from the start against Leicester City, and was typically lively, threatening with his direct running from the wing.
Liverpool won the game 2-1 thanks to goals from Daniel Clearly and Cameron Brannagan. Ojo himself took to Twitter to express his own mixed feelings on the victory.
disappointed not to have scored today but most importantly , we got the win! well done boys https://t.co/a4w243WNbA— Sheyi Ojo (@sheyi_ojo) May 4, 2015
The winger was full of confidence after impressing for Wigan Athletic in the Championship, and is a talent Liverpool have high hopes for; not many players get sent on loan at 17.
Ojo was was described by Liverpool's website as central to the creativity of the team against Leicester's under-21s, testing the opposition goalkeeper himself.
The youngster is not the finished article by any stretch, but he consistently shows enough potential to suggest Liverpool have a special talent on their hands.
His emergence and progress this campaign gives him a realistic chance of getting a game for the first team in pre-season, and then he can be further assessed. Here is a look at how fans reacted to his most recent display...
Our defending in the U21's is like our defending in the senior team. Ojo looks like he's gonna be a quality player though #LFC— CaughtZeKlopp (@LFCareBack) May 4, 2015
Not a great half for #LFC U21s. Ojo/Wilson perhaps most impressive, with Kent - one run aside - slightly muted after taking an early knock.— Jack Lusby (@jacklusby_) May 4, 2015
@sheyi_ojo has to be included in the first team soon, what a gifted player, he can be top class if he wants, works hard and destroys players— Steven Walsh (@guffy82) May 4, 2015
