Liverpool boss Klopp: Preseason has caught up to Brewster

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes preseason has caught up to Rhian Brewster.

Brewster was one of the most impressive performers during the early stages of the summer, netting four goals in the Reds' first three games.

However, the 19-year-old has struggled to make a similar impact in recent outings and was given fewer minutes against Sporting Lisbon last Wednesday and Napoli on Sunday.

Klopp said: “He's close but for him this was his first first-team pre-season. After a long injury, long, intense.

“It started really well then pre-season knocked him down, you really feel your legs, but we are super positive about him. No pressure.

“With the talent and attitude he has, it will be fine, but when I don't know. In a lot of pre-season moments he looked really good. The future is bright."
