Liverpool beat Torino in final pre-season friendly

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp during the international friendly game between Liverpool and Napoli at Aviva Stadium

In the second half at Anfield midfielders Fabinho - who missed an early penalty - and Marko Grujic both filled in as Van Dijk only played 45 minutes but Klopp is not anxious ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham.

Lovren helped Croatia reach the final of the tournament in Russian Federation, of course, just months after playing in the Champions League showpiece with the Reds.

The Liverpool manager could have a problem in central defence for the Premier League opener against West Ham United, however.

Liverpool were in complete control from the start and were awarded a penalty in the 16th minute.

Alisson was not able to keep a clean sheet after being beaten by Andrea Belotti's close-range header but his departure late on saw Loris Karius warmly welcomed back to Anfield by fans after his two costly errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid. Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.

Fabinho, who had scored 16 in a row from the spot for AS Monaco, sent the penalty several yards wide.

"Totally Legal": Trump Admits His Son Met Russian Lawyer In Election Year
In a tweet early Sunday morning, Trump said the meeting was arranged "to get information on an opponent", and is "totally legal". USA media then reported that the U.S. president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting.

Alisson only recently joined up with the Liverpool due to his World Cup involvement with Brazil but, according to Roberston, the goalkeeper has already settled into life at Anfield.

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.

The centre-back returned to Melwood on Monday morning to begin pre-season training following the conclusion of his post-World Cup holiday.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring their second goal with team mates.

In his player ratings piece for the Echo, Ian Doyle rated Fabinho 5 out of 10 for his role in the Reds' 3-1 win over Torino.
