Liverpool fans have been drooling at the prospect of a Rhian Brewster debut. The teenage striker has made quite a name for himself on his way through the Liverpool ranks. Brewster picked up a golden boot at the U17 World Cup, a tournament he scored back to back hat-tricks in. Ever since this bursting onto the international scene, Kopites have been excited to see if he can replicate his youth form in the senior team. At the moment, there are a host of Premier League rivals with prodigy strikers making their way through – Reds fans will want their team to keep up with the production line pace.
This week saw Mason Greenwood become the first Manchester United player born in the 2000s to score a senior goal. Arsenal beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 thanks to a goal from teenage sensation Bukayo Saka. Chelsea academy product Tammy Abraham has been in fine form this season, netting a hat-trick against Wolves last time out.
The Rhian Brewster debut can’t come soon enough. We are anxious to get a look at whether he can make the step up in trip. The youngster could be the future of Liverpool FC if he delivers on his reported potential. Or he could be another Neil Mellor. The Liverpool Echo‘s Anfield correspondent Paul Gorst said during a Q&A, “The upcoming game against MK Dons is viewed, from the Academy’s perspective at least, as the ideal match for Brewster’s senior debut”. This news will delight Reds with the game coming so soon. Could the 25th of September be a date to remember?
