Liverpool 3-1 Torino: Reds end pre-season with victory at Anfield

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

Liverpool fans have been anxious that with Fabinho and Naby Keita's acquisitions, skipper Jordan Henderson may be warming the bench in the coming season but Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has allayed those fears even as he revealed that the Englishman may have to adjust his game a fair bit.

Henderson played a crucial role in England's run to the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but his club manager asserted that he didn't need to see the midfielder's displays in Russian Federation to be convinced of his qualities. With Joel Matip injured and Dejan Lovren starting pre-season training only on Monday following his World Cup final exploits, Joe Gomez was primed to line-up alongside Virgil van Dijk on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's City became the first Premier League team to reach 100 points last term as they wrote a number of records, winning the league by 19 points.

"For Raggy [Klavan] and Joel [Matip], probably they are not fit and can not play for the weekend, but we don't need 12 centre-halves, we only need two at least and one to change would be extremely cool". "I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad", Robertson added.

Roberto Firmino and Georgino Wijnaldum both scored within eight minutes of Fabinho missing a first-half penalty before Andrea Belotti quickly replied for the Italians.

It was a moment which pleased Klopp as much as the performance.

Jurgen Klopp made a raft full of changes at half-time as Torino made constant changes, which disturbed the flow of the game but Liverpool had all of the ball and after a few chances, they finally got their third goal when Daniel Sturridge headed home Xherdan Shaqiri's neat cross.

Henderson, who reported back for duty on Sunday following his exertions for England at the World Cup, is not expected to start Liverpool's Premier League 2018/19 Premier League season opener against West Ham United on August 12.

"We showed tonight a really nice face and that helps, not only Loris but the others as well that they see this is a very special place".

"All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time but today will help the defence and help him know how we play as well", he said.
