Liverpool drew 2-2 in their latest pre-season friendly with Austrian outfit Salzburg, with Rhian Brewster the hero of the hour for the Premier League champions.
The young striker netted two late goals to earn parity after Salzburg had raced into a 2-0 lead during a below-par first-half for Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are busy preparing for Saturday’s Community Shield clash with Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday – with Brewster doing his chances of featuring no harm at all.
The 20-year-old made it three goals in two pre-season games with a devastating brace and he’ll be desperate for a chance this season.
Brewster fired 11 goals for Swansea City during the second half of 2019/20, helping Steve Cooper’s team into the Championship play-offs on the final day of the campaign.
With Divock Origi likely to be offloaded this summer, Brewster could be handed more first-team football at Anfield.
The youngster is held in high regard at the club and if he keeps scoring there is no reason why Klopp shouldn’t show faith in the youngster.
Supporters were quick to react to Brewster’s latest pre-season performance on Twitter following his quick-fire double, with many delighted for him.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Liverpool fans after the starlet helped spare the Reds’ blushes.
In terms of ability he’s much better than origi by a country mile, not doubting the goals origi has scored for us just think we need someone who has a natural eye for goals
