We have been bigging up Samed Yesil ever since he joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, so it is good to see the “new Gerd Muller” is still banging in the goals, albeit at Under-21 level.
The Liverpool YouTube channel have very kindly uploaded footage of an exciting 3-2 win over Wolves on Monday by the Under-21 side.
Yesil set up the opener for Krisztian Adorjan. Only for Wolves to hit back through an own goal by Conor Coady and Sam Winnall.
Marc Pelosi brought Liverpool back into the match and then Yesil swept home the winner to secure a comeback win.
With Daniel Sturridge brought in and Fabio Borini back from injury, Samed Yesil is unlikely to get too many chances this season but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be pleased that he is still scoring.
Footage of Liverpool U21 3 – Wolves U21 2 is below.
