Jurgen Klopp dismisses defensive worries after Liverpool beat Torino

  • Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the Premier League will be difficult this season

It should also be remembered that Liverpool defeated Manchester City three times last season, as well as recently beating the sky blues in pre-season. Firstly, Firmino unleashed an effort in the 21st minute that took a wild deflection and went beyond Salvatore Sirigu in the Torino goal.

Jurgen Klopp's side have only been beaten once in their nine friendlies this summer and kick off their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

Liverpool should have taken the lead moments earlier when gifted a hugely generous penalty by referee Michael Oliver.

The performance seldom hit the emphatic heights of Saturday's 5-0 thrashing of Napoli and suffered something of a false start when new signing Fabinho swiped a penalty wide after Gleison Bremer tripped Sadio Mane.

"But they've had to be rectified those areas, majority have been so at this moment on paper Liverpool do look the strongest to challenge". Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.

Wijnaldum then doubled the hosts advantage three minutes later with a lovely move that saw the Dutch worldwide sneak in behind the visitors defence before pelting the ball into the back of the net.

The first goal conceded by Alisson at Anfield as a Liverpool 'keeper, there wasn't really a whole lot he could have done about this.

Liverpool FC ended up losing the final 3-1 to Real Madrid but the Merseyside outfit still earned plenty of new admirers for their free-flowing attacking football.

Shaqiri and Sturridge were the two Liverpool replacements to stand out and they combined for their third goal on 87 minutes, with the former Stoke City winger dinking a subtle cross over the Italian defence which Sturridge glanced inside the post.

"What happened in the Champions League final to Karius, yes disappointed as a Liverpool fan on the night, but we've all been there as players where you've had a poor game but to have it in such a big and memorable game".
