Liverpool beat Torino in final pre-season friendly

Sturridge headed in from close range after a delightful cross from summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri.

Alisson took to the pitch for the first time for his new Premier League club since he made the £56 move from Serie A side AS Roma earlier this summer.

"You look at getting to a Champions League final. I didn't need the final proof in and around the World Cup or in last season".

"The goalkeeper situation has given everyone a massive lift, Liverpool support wise".

The bar has been raised by Manchester City and the Premier League title hopefuls know they will have little room for error if they are to challenge Pep Guardiola's side this season. "I still remember the Burnley game (at Turf Moor in August 2016) when we lost 2-0 with 80 per cent possession".

"Mignolet and Karius are good goalkeepers, they're not great goalkeepers".

"Hendo is so important to us, not only as a player but also as a person and as a leader", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds earned plenty of praise for their strong performances last season as Jurgen Klopp's men ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table and reached the Champions League final.

"Yes, they finished second last season but with a very healthy points total", he said when asked if people were jumping the gun on leaving United out of the equation.

There was also another promising display from 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips, who played nearly the full 90 minutes at centre-back, and a nice moment midway through the second half when Loris Karius, whose errors contributed to Liverpool's defeat in last season's Champions League final, replaced Alisson to huge cheers from the home crowd.

A flurry of changes after the break interrupted the flow of the match and a late third from one of the substitutes - Daniel Sturridge - closed out a victory for Liverpool which they can add to pre-season wins over both Manchester clubs and Napoli. "But I'm happy we can start at the weekend because preseason is good but the season is better still".
