Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster has failed to impress on his senior debut against MK Dons.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp handed Brewster the chance to start up-front for his side last night, but he arguably didn’t have the impact many were hoping for.
Although Liverpool won the game 2-0, Brewster was on the periphery for much of the contest.
The 19-year-old had looked excellent over pre-season, but struggled more last night.
And some Liverpool fans have criticised the prospect, suggesting that his ability has been ‘overhyped’.
Brewster is miles off first team did nothing today— ⭐️⭐️⭐️Naby_Keita LFC⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@LFC_Wahome) September 25, 2019
Wasn’t that impressed with Brewster he needs to bulk up as easily pushed off ball. Don’t think he is as close to first team as club made out— ⭐️⭐️⭐️Naby_Keita LFC⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@LFC_Wahome) September 25, 2019
Just me who was disappointed with Brewster? Rest of the kids did well— (@ClemLFC1892) September 25, 2019
Can't believe how unlucky Harvey Elliott was! He played as I was expected him to be though, unlike Ox,Keita and Brewster.. below my expectation. Glad with the win. More chance to see young Reds! #LFC— Fari Siregar (@Fari_Siregar) September 25, 2019
I'm starting to think that Rhian brewster is extremely overrated.— Iskandar (@iskandarzulzak) September 25, 2019
Brewster overhyped and overrated.— ZK (@LFCAcc) September 25, 2019
Brewster was poor tonight and it hurts me to say this but greenwood is levels ahead— Weq (@Primehendo14) September 25, 2019
Brewster received a big promotion from Klopp over the summer and this is unlikely to be the end of his first team chances at Liverpool this term.
The youngster looks set to play a rotational role in Liverpool’s senior squad, and he will be hoping that Klopp keeps faith with him and offers him more game time as the season progresses.
Liverpool are now set to face Arsenal in the fourth round of the competition, after beating MK Dons last night.
