Some Liverpool supporters have been praising Ozan Kabak, claiming he was one of the few positives in the 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
It was a bitterly disappointing evening for Jurgen Klopp and his players, with their performance horribly below par in Spain.
In truth, the final score was arguably kind on Liverpool, with their defending leaving a lot to be desired and too many attacking players off the boil.
The Reds now have a mountain to climb in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie next Wednesday, especially with no fans allowed inside Anfield.
One player who again stood out was Kabak, however, with the Turk producing a solid display, barring one error in the first half.
While a number of more experienced players around him threw in shocking performances, he looked an assured presence at the heart of the defence.
It was further proof that Liverpool should consider the idea of signing Kabak permanently in the summer – at 21, he has lots of potential.

These Reds fans took to Twitter to laud the youngster’s showing.
“Don’t wanna see anyone get on to Kabak. He bailed Phillips out numerous times and if it wasn’t for him we would’ve held 5. Our 2nd best player tonight”
