Sinclair, Brewitt and Brannagan have impressed for Liverpool U21s this season

Paisley Gateway

Taking a closer look at three young Liverpool prospects.

Liverpool have had a hit-and-miss start to the new campaign and currently find themselves 10th in the table and without a manager after sacking Brendan Rodgers at the weekend.

As reported by the BBC, the Reds are close to appointing Jurgen Klopp as his replacement, and if and when the German arrives he will surely be keen to see which young players he has to get excited about.

Here we take a look at three players who are currently impressing for Liverpool’s under-21 side:

Cameron Brannagan

Cameron Brannagan finally and deservedly made his first-team debut for Liverpool this season in the Europa League clash with Bordeaux, but he has also been impressing for the under-21 side in recent times.

The 19-year-old is the current captain of the young Reds side and he has scored one goal and provided one assist in four appearances to date.

He always puts in a captain’s performance and deserves to go on to great things.

Jerome Sinclair

Jerome Sinclair has started this season as he finished the last, scoring one goal in two under-21 league appearances and netting a brace against Chelsea in the Premier League International U21 Cup.

The 19-year-old is a real talent in front of goal but his future remains unclear having rejected a new contract in the summer.

Tom Brewitt

Centre-back Tom Brewitt has looked impressive at the back for Liverpool’s under-21s this season and he is also a threat at the opposite end of the field.

He was extremely unlucky not to score his first goal of the season against Leicester City recently, his header saved at point-blank range although Liverpool did go on to win the match.
