Liverpool put the finishing touches on their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 win over Torino in the first outing at Anfield in over 86 days.
Less than a week out from the season opener the Reds headed into the clash brimming with confidence as they looked to close the curtains on their summer with a seventh victory from nine games.
The encounter against the Serie A side offered the home faithful the opportunity to lay eyes on the team, who many believe will be title contenders, for the first time this season.
The Reds wasted little time asserting their dominance with the usual suspect in Roberto Firmino opening the scoring in his second 45-minute stint of the summer, with Gini Wijnaldum quickly doubling the lead in what was his second goal in as many games.
The second half offered opportunities to a plethora of players to stake their claim for a spot in the matchday squad on Sunday, with Xherdan Shaqiri doing his chances no harm after setting up Daniel Sturridge for Liverpool’s third of the evening on his Anfield debut.
Jordan Henderson made a brief return to action after his extended break and joined in the festivities as the Reds, alongside Jurgen Klopp, made their way around the four corners of Anfield at the conclusion of the game to hand out scarves, sign autographs and take selfies.
