There is perhaps also a hint at more of a first-team role for exciting youngster Rhian Brewster this season as he’s given the number 24 shirt.

Still only 18, Brewster looks one of the biggest talents coming through at Anfield at the moment, and can take some heart from being given a first-team shirt number.

While this of course does not necessarily guarantee the England youth international any more playing time, he should be encouraged by the way other youngsters at the club have been given a chance by manager Jurgen Klopp.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was the breakthrough star of last season, while Nathaniel Phillips saw plenty of action in pre-season.

Klopp was similarly trusting in his youth at former club Borussia Dortmund, so fans hoping to see more academy graduates coming into the first-team should be excited by the Brewster news.
