Liverpool striker Brewster hoping to start in Carabao Cup

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is hoping to start in the Carabao Cup against MK Dons tonight.

Brewster, 19, is set to make his senior debut after recovering from a serious ankle injury which kept him sidelined for 15 months.

"[Jurgen] Klopp spoke to me and told me, 'You're going to get your chance this year' and I'm just waiting for that chance now so that I can prove him right," Brewster told the Mirror.

"He's not one of those managers you don't want to speak to, he's a great manager and he's so down to earth.

"At the moment it's just about getting game time. Playing for the Under-23s is good because obviously I was out for so long, so he's trying to put me into it [the first team] slowly and not just throw me in there."
