Teenage striker Samed Yesil looks set to be handed his Liverpool debut by manager Brendan Rodgers in Thursday's UEFA Europa League group game against Young Boys.

The 18-year-old German forward, who moved to Merseyside from Bayer Leverkusen last month, is likely to start with a number of senior players being rested ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash against Manchester United at Anfield.

Liverpool were unable to replace Andy Carroll, who joined West Ham on loan, before the transfer window shut, meaning Yesil could face a swift promotion from the reserves. "Yesil will certainly be fast-tracked," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.
