Rhian Brewster is set to make his full Premier League debut for Sheffield United against Liverpool this weekend. The Reds just sold the youngster.
Rhian Brewster is in line for his full Premier League debut against Liverpool on Saturday. That’s according to Chris Wilder, per the Telegraph, who has been impressed with the youngster’s training.
Brewster is a new signing at Sheffield United, of course. He joined the club for around £23m in early October from, of course, Liverpool.
The Reds have a three-year buy-back option on Brewster, in fact. The scouting on that potential deal starts on Saturday, it seems, as the player will make a Premier League debut at Anfield. Just not in the colours we thought he would.
What RTK has to say
There was always a decent chance of this coming about as soon as Liverpool sold Brewster to Sheffield United. Still, it’s a funny little turnaround that Reds fans will still get to see his Premier League debut at Anfield.

We really thought Brewster had a future with Liverpool but fully understand why they sold him. He was never going to develop properly as soon as it was clear he was a ways down the pecking order.
Selling him with a buy-back clause was the best way to ensure he gets that development. And Saturday genuinely will be a real clue to how likely it is that he’ll end up back with Liverpool.
We’ll all get to see how naturally he fits into the Blades’ lineup and system. If he fits well, then we’d bank on him developing quite rapidly there – he’s certainly got the talent.
And hopefully, he fits in well and fulfils that talent. Liverpool have an advantage in signing him if he becomes a special player, after all. Fingers crossed he fits like a glove under Wilder.
