Liverpool kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 4-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Wednesday night.
A penalty converted by James Milner and Marko Grujic’s fierce hit from distance gave the Reds the kind of lead their first-half performance deserved at the interval.
Pedro Chirivella, one of 10 players introduced in the second period, quickly added to the scoreline with a straightforward rebound and Ben Woodburn sealed the win by earning and scoring another spot-kick.
The headline news in the starting line-up was the first appearance since February for Jordan Henderson in midfield, while the likes of Roberto Firmino, Milner, Daniel Sturridge and Georginio Wijnaldum began the game too.
