There’s a lot of hype surrounding Rhian Brewster, and it’s easy to see. After all, there aren’t many teenagers who can say that they’ve sat on the bench in a Champions League final, and the fact that Jurgen Klopp elected to not bring in a new senior attacking player last summer so that he could get his opportunity with the first team this season is testament to just how promising the youngster is. That being said, he has yet to really make an impact at Anfield, and has been limited to Carabao Cup appearances so far this term, and with the Reds in such great form, it looks as if it could be a while before he gets his Premier League bow too. And many England fans will feel that his credentials took a bit of a beating with a fairly underwhelming display in the U21s late 2-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Tuesday evening. This was a rather anonymous outing from Brewster, and there was certainly nothing to suggest that he is the special prodigy that everybody on Merseyside is swooning over. But does that really matter? Of course not. People have bad days at the office all the time, and we are talking about a youngster who has spent the best part of the past 18 months on the sidelines through injury. Give him time, don’t jump on his back so quickly, and Brewster will come good.

I know I've only seen Rhian Brewster twice now, but I just don't see the hype about him.
Once for Liverpool and once now for England U21s and he just doesn't impress me.
