Rhian Brewster (born 1 April 2000) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Liverpool, but mainly for the U23s.

Liverpool careerEdit

Brewster spent the majority of his early youth career starring for Chelsea, before eventually moving to Liverpool at the age of 15, in July 2015. In the 2016-17 season Brewster rose to prominence quickly, initially starring for the U18s side before eventually progressing to the U23s side in January. The youngsters competence despite at times a seven year age difference between opponents impressed manager Jurgen Klopp.

On 23 April 2017, Brewster was named on the substitutes bench for the 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, and was given the number 57 shirt. Despite this, Klopp stated that he wouldn't be likely to appear much for the senior side, with the U23s being more his level at the time.

After a lot of speculation regarding the youngsters future, on 17 July 2018 it was announced that Brewster had signed a new long-term contract with the club, rejecting interest from clubs such as RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach. On 10 August 2018, it was confirmed that Brewster was to take the number 24 shirt for the 2018-19 season.

After an injury-plagued campaign, Brewster finally made his return to action in March 2019, playing and returning to goalscoring action for the U23s. On 7 May 2019, Brewster was named on the bench for Liverpool's 4-0 Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona.

Brewster kept his place on the subsitutes bench for the Champions League final, and received a winners medal following the Reds' 2-0 win over Tottenham, making him a European Cup winner before his first senior appearance.

In pre-season Brewster trained with the first team squad. On 11 July 2019, the striker scored twice on his senior debut, a 6-0 friendly win over Tranmere. He went on to feature in each of Liverpool’s six other friendlies, ending pre-season with four goals to his name. On 14 August 2019, Brewster was included on the substitutes bench for the UEFA Super Cup, and picked up another winners medal as Liverpool beat Chelsea on a penalty shootout.

On 25 September 2019, Brewster finally made his competitive debut for the club, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2-0 win away to MK Dons. A month later, he started at Anfield for the first time. Brewster scored a penalty in a shootout win over Arsenal, with the Reds' winning after a 5-5 draw in normal-time.

With playtime very limited across the first half of the campaign, Brewster was sent out on loan to Swansea for the rest of the 2019-20 season.

After a very successful spell at Swansea, netting 11 times in 22 appearances, Brewster returned to Liverpool in the summer. The youngster had a productive pre-season, and was rewarded with a spot on the bench for the Community Shield. Brewster came on as a very late substitute, and missed his penalty in the shootout, handing the shield to Arsenal.
