- Swindon Town 1-2 Liverpool: Christian Benteke scores screamer as Reds beat Robins
- Video: Christian Benteke’s superb volley on his Liverpool debut vs. Swindon
- Video: Sheyi Ojo doubles Liverpool lead vs. Swindon thanks to unfortunate goalkeeping error
The Reds finished off their pre-season in style, with the win at the County Ground ensuring Brendan Rodgers’ side went the summer unbeaten.
Christian Benteke’s sensational opener on his debut was clearly the most memorable moment of the day, while Sheyi Ojo’s late winner highlighted the young talent currently on show at the club.
Focus now turns to next Sunday’s Premier League curtain raiser at Stoke City, as the serious business really starts for Liverpool.
Here is how social media reacted to the win against Swindon:

Toure-Sakho remains Liverpool’s best tactical fit combo for CB, best actual defensively technical pairing for CB, and backup pairing for CB.

Our ratio of chances created to goals scored worries me, we need to become more clinical. Good debuts for Firmino and Benteke. Can was great on his return. Ojo and Kent played well, as did Lucas.
Roberto Firmino is really, really good at football.

That Benteke goal was ridiculous. Made it look so easy.

Preseason done and dusted. Bring on Stoke.
#LFC's loanee @LawrenceV93 is the Swindon man of the match. Not bad for a trial run.

Bit of a mad one, but this Ryan Kent is the best player I've ever seen.#LFC

Can't believe Benteke wasted his one worldie he gets per season in a friendly against Swindon.
