Liverpool concluded an impressive pre-season by cruising to a 3-1 win over Torino on Tuesday.

It mattered little as Roberto Firmino opened the scoring with a deflected effort in the 21st minute after Mohamed Salah slalomed across the field.

Paul Pogba furious with Jose Mourinho amid Barcelona and Juventus interest

Klopp has an nearly irreplaceable front three at his disposal at Liverpool, but should one of them suffer an injury or receive a suspension, the German has little in reserve apart from Ings and Danirl Sturridge.

Appearing on Talksport, Murphy claimed that just two of Liverpool's players would make it into the Manchester City starting line-up.

"But at the same time I understand the lads have been back a lot longer than me and they have had minutes on the pitch".

And Liverpool's business wasn't done there as they also acquired Fabinho from Monaco for a cool €45 million to become the Premier League's biggest spenders in the summer transfer window.
