It's fair to say you can't always read too much into pre-season friendlies, but Liverpool fans must be praying their performance against Barcelona is a sign of things to come. 

Few would have made the Reds the favourites before they kicked off against the La Liga champions, with most only predicting that Luis Suarez would be the star of the show against his old club. 

Sadio Mane put Jurgen Klopp's men in front, but while Barca responded well, the game was all but over thanks to 76 crazy seconds at the start of the second half.

Henderson has had his own injury concerns in recent months, so he will be pleased to have played a part in the goal. Take a look at Mascherano's unhappy reunion with his old side here: 

Origi's finish was far more composed, particularly for a player who is still only 21 years old. 

Of course, while the show they put on at Wembley won't earn them any points, Liverpool fans will no doubt still be delighted with the performance which has to be a good omen going into the new Premier League season.
