Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster was back amongst the goals on Sunday as he inspired a late surge from the victorious U23s against Sunderland.
The introduction of Brewster and Matty Virtue as second half substitutes proved to be the difference, with both getting themselves on the score sheet to help the Reds to a 3-0 win.
This came after a strong starting lineup including the likes of Danny Ings, Ben Woodburn and Marko Grujic had struggled to break the deadlock against a stern Sunderland.
It was Virtue that put Liverpool ahead, striking home the rebound from Corey Whelan’s header following Yan Dhanda’s superb cross.
Brewster’s moment in the spotlight came shortly after, when the striker latched onto Ovie Ejaria’s perfectly weighted pass before firing home from just outside the six-yard box.
He then turned provider moments later, squaring for Virtue to round off the win and an emphatic 10 minute period for Neil Critchley’s men.
Once again, the teenager made the most of his opportunity to impress and continued the fine form he had shown during the second half of the 2016/2017 campaign.
After missing the entire pre-season through injury, Brewster doesn’t look in a mood to hang around as he strives to draw the attention of Jurgen Klopp.
Here’s a look at his goal…
WHAT. A. BALL. FROM. @Oejaria!
