Lyon vs Liverpool
FT 1-3

Liverpool

Reds recover from Alisson howler, next up Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday


Liverpool ended their pre-season on a high with a confidence boosting 3-1 win over Lyon in Geneva where Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Alisson returned to action.
After four games without a win in pre-season, the switch to the Alps and the return of their big guns triggered an upsurge in performance level for the Reds. Sadio Mane was the only notable absentee as he has yet to return after his African Cup of Nations exploits with Senegal.


Firmino spared the blushes of Alisson - whose early gaffe handed Lyon a penalty, converted by Memphis Depay (4) - with a tidy finish to level the scores (17). That settled Jurgen Klopp's men down and a comical Joachim Andersen own goal put them in charge before Harry Wilson cracked in a stunning 25-yard effort (53).


Ahead of the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday, Klopp gave all of his 25-man squad a run-out by making wholesale changes in the second-half - with 16-year-old Harvey Elliott, a recent acquisition from Fulham, putting in an impressive cameo.

Starting XI
Liverpool: Alisson, Hoever, Gomez, Lovren, Larouci, Keita, Shaqiri, Lallana, Wilson, Salah, Firmino

How much of a polished fullback does Hoever look! First team back up at centreback and rightback:

Look at Elliott’s composure, movement and confidence at his young age. A diamond in the rough:

both signs are amazing, they looked so confident of their abilities on the pitch.

Hoever is another copy of Gomez who can play in 2 positions.

Elliott’s seems to take No#10 roles on the pitch.
