All six of Liverpool's goals in pre-season friendly win vs Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere Rovers v Liverpool - Pre-Season Friendly

Liverpool started their pre-season with a bang on Thursday night as they beat League Two side Tranmere Rovers 6-0.

Goals from Rhian Brewster (2), Nathaniel Clyne, Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Bobby Duncan sealed a comfortable victory for the Reds in the absence of their star players.

Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp said he was delighted with the display considering pre-season training only started a week ago.

"All round it was a brilliant performance of the boys, in both halves we played really good football against a good, physically strong side," the German told reporters.

"The boys let the ball do the work pretty much, the ball was constantly busy rolling so the game was fluent. I liked it a lot.

"All the individual performances were good, tactical-wise altogether good, pressing good, counter-pressing. I saw all the things."

"One hundred per cent, but again it depends on him as well," said Klopp. "Divock Origi stays, obviously, which is good news; [Roberto] Firmino is still there.

"Rhian Brewster is a top striker, a top talent, and I am really happy. I told him already, he has an important role this year - but how important? Again, it depends on him and we will see.
