Liverpool forward Sheyi Ojo is doing his chances of facing Manchester United in the Europa league a whole lot of good after scoring a hattrick for the U-21 against Middlesbrough last night.

The manner in which he grabbed his treble against the U-21 team of Boro will certainly put him in the frame to face Manchester United on Thursday in the Europa League as manager Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the 18 year old.

However if the striker who achieved his hattrick with a stunning solo goal doesn’t get to play in the Europa league on Thursday, he is assured of a starting spot when the U-21 tackle Man United at Prenton Park on Friday.

Ojo who has three senior team appearances under his belt with a goal to his name in the cup was recently recalled from a loan spell at Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers by manager Jurgen Klopp.

However since featuring in the FA cup replay loss to West Ham United he hasn’t appeared in the senior team no thanks to the return to fitness of Daniel Sturridge,Divock Origi and Christian Benteke.
