Danny Ings was the man on target, clinically finishing beyond the goalkeeper after an excellent dribble forward and reverse pass into the area by youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Klopp told of Ings’ performance: “Danny Ings, with his qualities, will score goals in the future – that’s for sure. I can imagine it’s a special day today for him, but after the last year and so on he should not put too much pressure on himself. He should enjoy the game – he needs to get fit after the long, long-term injury he had.

“You need a long period to get back into 100 per cent shape. We are on this way and we’ll work together with him. Today, it was cool, it was a nice goal and he had other big chances, so I think he will be really happy. I know for Danny and all the other players, we have a really long way to go in this pre-season. We have to use this time.”
