Rhian Brewster is a name that has drawn similar comparisons to the undeniable talent of former Reds heroes such as Michael Owen and Raheem Sterling when the youngster first hit the Liverpool scene. Sadly for the talented teenager, he has seen his progress plagued by numerous injury setbacks.

Two years since a career-threatening injury, the 19-year-old finally will know how it feels to see the net bulge after scoring in the professional game for the first time after firing for loan club Swansea City in a 2-1 win against Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon.

Brewster joined the Swans in an attempt to seek first-team football as well as the opportunity to reunite with England U17’s World Cup-winning manager Steve Cooper.

The 2017 U17s Golden Boot winner has made three appearances for Liverpool but was restricted to limited game time with both Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi higher in Jurgen Klopp’s hierarchy.
