Pre-season: Liverpool 3-1 Torino, (Report & Other Results)

Liverpool ended their pre-season fixtures with a victory over Italian club Torino.

Jurgen Klopp's team were too quick, fast and stunning for their opponents throughout the match, even with numerous substitutions at the break.

Three summer signing - Alisson, Keita and Fabinho all started the match as Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum both scored to give the Reds a first-half lead.

The visitors [Torino] barely threatened but were able to pull one back through Andrea Belloti's powerful header.

After the break, Klopp substituted a host of first-team players with the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana, Danny Ings and Marko Grujic, along with another off-season recruit, Xherdan Shaqiri.

It was substitute Sturridge who secured the victory for Liverpool, placing in an header perfectly from Shaqiri's chipped cross late in the match to make it 3-1.

Despite the frequent substitution of players in pre-season, there was enough quality from Liverpool to show they are ready for the new season days away.
