Rhian Brewster was the star of the show as Liverpool thrashed Tranmere Rovers in their first pre-season game of the summer.

The English forward scored two goals and grabbed an assist in his first senior pre-season game ever and fans are over the moon with the way he performed.

A quick look at the numbers from the game will suggest he played a big part but that’s only a fraction of how impressive he was.

Considering that he’s still working his way back from injury it was hugely impressive to see him buzzing around the park looking to get involved in as many phases of play as possible.

Some fans hilariously compared him to Kylian Mbappe but, of course, those comparisons were tongue in cheek as the Frenchman is obviously a lot better and more established than the Liverpool forward.

Here is how fans reacted to Brewster’s star display.

There are still several games to go in the Reds’ pre-season programme and hopefully the youngster can use them to prove to Klopp that he’s as good as any backup striker that money can buy.

If he does make the grade, Liverpool will be saving tens of millions of pounds by not signing a top class forward and trusting him. Much like Trent Alexander-Arnold is, he will hold a special place in the hearts of supporters as he is a homegrown talent.
