Liverpool finish pre-season by beating Torino

Trent Alexander Arnold of Liverpool helps teammate Roberto Firmino of Liverpool to his feet during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on February 4

With Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all carrying injuries Virgil van Dijk cruised through the first half alongside under-23 defender Nathaniel Phillips. "He probably won't play Tuesday and Sunday will be very hard as well".

"I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad". It is nothing serious but it was not possible tonight as he played on Saturday, ' said Klopp.

"Joel, we'll have to see", Klopp said, according to the Liverpool Echo. Dejan Lovren, who looked solid throughout the World Cup as Croatia just barely missed out on claiming the most coveted trophy in football, is set to return to training early this week, he certainly won't face Torino or be ready in time to run out against the Hammers at the weekend.

It took them until the hour mark to make their next chance as Sturridge shot straight at Sirigu from a cute Xherdan Shaqiri pass, and Danny Ings was soon denied by a desperate clearance after bringing down a cross from the Swiss signing and squeezing a shot away.

Italy global Andrea Belotti pulled one back for the visitors with a powerful header, but after Klopp made a raft of substitutions, Daniel Sturridge nodded in a Xherdan Shaqiri cross to score for the third friendly in a row.


The Champions League finalists will kick off as second favourites behind Manchester City, and they're seen as the Citizens' main rivals for a reason, as they dished out one of only two City defeats of the Premier League season a year ago.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

And Klopp added: "I was not surprised to be honest but as a human being I was hoping for it and I loved it".

"I'm happy that we came through the pre-season so far, so good". "It is not about judging our situation and thinking 'Wow, really good.' We need to be ready each week - not only for a few games". Hendo needs a pre-season but not as much as the others as he has not had long off'.
