The goals were scored by Philippe Coutinho, Iago Aspas and captain Steven Gerrard. Coutinho’s opener was a thing of beauty, beating 3 defenders before finishing. Aspas took his goal well and Gerrard chipped the keeper after an assist by Aspas.

Coutinho was undoubtedly the man of the match, while Joe Allen also enjoyed a good game.

Luis Suarez played the last half an hour, while Brendan Rodgers gave some players a full 90 minutes for the first time this pre-season.

The match means Rodgers side have won all four pre-season games thus far, without conceding a goal, admittedly against weak opposition. They face Olympiakos next in Gerrard’s testimonial at Anfield next Saturday.

Goals: Coutinho 16, Aspas 49, Gerrard 59

LFC: Mignolet, Enrique, Agger, Toure (Skrtel 69), Johnson, Lucas, Allen (Alberto 80), Gerrard, Coutinho (Henderson 69), Aspas (Suarez 62), Borini (Ibe 62).

Subs not used: Jones, Kelly, Flanagan, Spearing, Wisdom, Robinson, Downing, Sterling, Coates, Assaidi, Ward.
