Rhian Brewster's starring performance in Liverpool's opening pre-season match showed what all the fuss is about.

Brewster scored two goals and provided one assist in the victory over Tranmere Rovers.

The teenage talent has been battling injury for the past two years, slowing his development since he finished top scorer at the under-17 World Cup.

 

In January Liverpool took a decision to cash in on Dominic Solanke, selling him to Bournemouth for £19 million.

The Reds sold Solanke despite Brewster not yet returning to full fitness.

Bournemouth's offer was truly too good to turn down, but if Liverpool really believed in the former Chelsea forward, they would have tried to keep him.

Knowing they have Brewster, backed up by Bobby Duncan and Paul Glatzel, made the decision even easier.

But as a follow up, Liverpool need Brewster to make good on his potential.

Last night was a very positive sign.

He grabbed the limelight in a way Solanke was never able to do in his pre-season appearances.

Brewster could be worth a lot more than £19 million already.
