Forty days since becoming champions of Europe for a sixth time, and minus most of the talent that landed the prize in Madrid, Liverpool returned to action in the more earthy setting of Tranmere’s Prenton Park.

Divock Origi was off the bench and on the scoresheet once again but it was the youngster Rhian Brewster who revelled in a first senior start under Jürgen Klopp to suggest he is ready to make up for lost time.

The 19-year-old has endured a torrid time with injury since emerging on the global stage in 2017 but is viewed by Liverpool’s manager as the natural replacement for Daniel Sturridge, aka Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

The Belgium international played the second half against Tranmere, Brewster the first, as Klopp fielded two completely different teams for 45 minutes each.

Brewster sprayed a first-time ball out to the unmarked Nathaniel Clyne and the full-back, another destined for the exit, found the top corner with an emphatic finish.

For Brewster Prenton Park represented the start of what Klopp hopes will prove a breakthrough season for him.

He and Brewster find themselves top of the pecking order in attack until Firmino, Mané and Salah return.
