After scoring his third goal of pre-season, Liverpool fans sensationally claimed on Twitter that the young forward is a future Ballon d’Or winner.
The academy graduate has been exciting Liverpool fans all summer and now that the Reds’ pre-season programme is underway, he is justifying the hype.
Some might say “it’s only Tranmere and Bradford” but this is the first time Brewster has played against full grown men and he looks like he’s playing in the park.
He’ll come up against much tougher opposition when Liverpool travel to the USA and face the likes of Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund.
The nature of his goals has been most impressive as his natural instinct inside the box has taken over and seen him score a header and two poacher’s finishes after following up on the rebound from long range strikes from James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Here is how Liverpool fans have reacted.
Word on the street. Rhian will play major roles next season

Rhian Brewster is a mercurial talent and such a clinical finisher. Always in the right place for the right moment, very good at pressing and his link up play is class. Very well suited in our system, we have an very special player in our hands. 🔴

While it seems ridiculous for fans to claim that Brewster will win the coveted Balon d’Or in the next five years, that’s how highly rated he is.
If he can get a decent run of games under his belt this season and avoid suffering a major injury like the one that ruled him out of action last season, he should be able to build a strong foundation from which he can push on from.
The lad is still only 19 years of age and could become a truly special player for Liverpool if all goes to plan.
