It was a famous night at Anfield yesterday and the Liverpool fans propping up the bar here in the Transfer Tavern can’t quite get over just how good Jurgen Klopp and his side were against the Premier League champions-elect.
However, it’s not all good for our resident Reds. Indeed, BBC Sport have sourced quotes from the Reds’ academy manager Neil Critchley hinting at a major injury blow for one of the Anfield giants’ most exciting youngsters. Indeed, England U17 World Cup hero is reportedly facing a long-term layoff after suffering an ankle injury, though is not thought to have suffered a fracture.
Having won the Golden Boot as the Young Lions tasted World Cup glory at U17 level, much has been expected of the 17-year-old forward. Though forcing his way into Klopp’s attacking line may be a big ask right now, the fact Brewster has suffered a damaging injury hasn’t gone down well amongst our local Liverpudlians.
Stretchered off in his last game, the fact they won’t be able to watch one of England’s brightest future hopes has seriously annoyed our punters.
“We fear the worst a little bit at the moment,” said Critchley.
