Liverpool wrapped up their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 win over Torino and made a massive statement of intent for their title challenge.

Liverpool looked sharp in the first half as Mo Salah and Naby Keita, in particular, showed they have the fitness and energy to rival City for the title.

Salah produced an excellent opening goal for Roberto Firmino in the first half with a brilliant run and pass, and then Firmino did the same for Georgino Wijnaldum.

Even a header from Torino’s Andrea Belotti couldn’t stop the carnival atmosphere at Anfield, and when Daniel Sturridge showed his form with a smart header late on, the win was complete.

Klopp must be impressed with his side’s display and will be confident of challenging for the title this season.

A Premier League trophy will erase the memories of lost finals considering it’s the only title that has evaded the Reds in this era.

The German tactician broke the jinx with Dortmund and still has the magic wands to replicate the same feat at Anfield.
