Liverpool managed a 3-1 victory against Lyon to wrap up their Pre-season on Wednesday evening.
The Champions League holders won courtesy of a Roberto Firmino strike on his return to club action, an own goal and youngster Harry Wilson hitting a long-range effort into the top corner.
It was perfect preparation for the challenge of facing Manchester City in the Community Shield next weekend, with this being Liverpool’s final pre-season game.
Jurgen Klopp was able to welcome back Alisson, Firmino, Xherdan Shaqiri, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita for the first time during pre-season. It seemed there was an element of rustiness at play for at least one of those who had spent his summer away on international duty. While the game would eventually conclude in ideal fashion for the Reds, it began badly after an error from Alisson. The goalkeeper missed a cross into the box and in an attempt to recover, Liverpool’s stopper gave away a penalty.
