Excitement for the new Premier League season is starting to build and Liverpool kicked off their pre-season schedule with an emphatic 0-6 victory over Tranmere Rovers.
Of course, you have to consider the level of competition they were up against but it's always good to see the team getting some wins under their belts before the important games arrive in about 30 days.
Pre-season friendly games are mainly about fitness. A few weeks away from regular training can bring about heavy legs and a lack of sharpness. Ironing out any inconsistencies before the season gets under the way is the aim of the game.
However, it's also a chance to take a look at new signings, youth players, and squad players fighting for a chance to feature in the first 11 when the season starts.
As Sepp van den Berg was unable to feature due to a work permit issue at the moment, Liverpool supporters are left waiting to see any new signings take to the pitch in the famous red shirt.
However, Brewster was amongst the starting 11 this evening and this is a player that Liverpool are very excited about. The 19-year-old forward has a lot of talent and many believe that he could go on to have the same kind of impact as Sterling did when he broke into Liverpool's first team. Nevertheless, there is always a risk that things won't quite work out so I was eager to see how he'd get on playing with some of the regular starters. We only need to look back to Ibe to see how things can take an unexpected turn for the worse.
If Klopp was struggling to keep expectations about Brewster on the lower end of the scale, he's now got a much more difficult job. Again, this was against Tranmere, but Brewster put in a strong first performance and bagged himself a couple of goals. I'm excited to see how involved he will be next season because Klopp certainly seems to rate the young forward highly. A few appearances in the League Cup and FA Cup are an almost certainty but he'll be desperate to get some minutes on the pitch in the Premier League.
Most of the first team haven't returned from international duty yet or have been given an extended break so there were a lot of fringe players trying to impress. It was good to see many of them doing well.
My favourite moment of the match, however, was when Origi came on to control a long-range pass from Matip perfectly and then took it around the goalkeeper before slotting home to make it 0-5. Having just signed a new long-term contract for the club and being given the honour of wearing the Captain's armband in this game, Origi's career trajectory is certainly on the rise.
Scorelines don't matter too much in pre-season but getting back to winning ways is never a bad thing. Building momentum as we head towards the start of the Premier League season is the aim here and Liverpool started off well.
