Klopp ‘guarentees’ highly rated youngster Brewster will feature against Barca

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed highly rated Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster will feature for the club against Barcelona on Tuesday night.

Liverpool host the Spanish champions at Anfield in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final clash, looking to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg a week ago.

Klopp’s striking options have been depleted by the absence of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah through injury, with the German stating it is ‘guaranteed’ 19-year-old Brewster will make a surprise debut.

“It’s guaranteed,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.

“He’s ready. Rhian has now arrived with us after being heavily injured. Day by day he has got better and he has been in outstanding shape for the last three or four weeks but the other players were there as well.

”Next season he will be playing 100% and he knows that. I have told him already. Now it’s really nice, in a difficult situation, that we can give him that spot in the squad and have him there to bring on as a striker. When you’re on the bench, you are an option to play.”
