Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the Premier League will be difficult this season

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the Premier League will be difficult this season

"He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him".

The 25-year-old will be a vital cog in the Liverpool machine as they attempt to push on and become real contenders for the Premier League title, and Robertson has been nothing but praiseworthy of the Brazilian.

Jurgen Klopp's side have only been beaten once in their nine friendlies this summer and kick off their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

Liverpool should have taken the lead moments earlier when gifted a hugely generous penalty by referee Michael Oliver.

However, it was Fabinho who perhaps got off to the worst possible start.

Badawi's wife Ensaf Haidar has been granted asylum by Canada, where she is raising their three children. According to the Toronto Star , there are about 16,000 Saudi students studying in Canada.

Wijnaldum then doubled the hosts advantage three minutes later with a attractive move that saw the Dutch global sneak in behind the visitors defence before pelting the ball into the back of the net. Alisson despite only one season of first-team football was picked ahead of Ederson as Brazil's first choice goalkeeper.

Some last-ditch defending prevented Liverpool from regaining their two-goal cushion on the stroke of half time, with Sirigu thwarting Wijnaldum after the midfielder had made another run beyond the Liverpool attack, and Alex Berenguer cleared Alexander-Arnold's follow-up off the line.

After receiving the ball on the edge of the box, the Swiss worldwide leaves possession for Nathaniel Clyne before taking the ball back off the England defender and dinking the ball over the top of the Torino defence for Daniel Sturridge to head home unmarked from close range.

The Reds stormed to victory over the Italians thanks to goals from James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno.

In his player ratings piece for the Echo, Ian Doyle rated Fabinho 5 out of 10 for his role in the Reds' 3-1 win over Torino. Nat Phillips played an outstanding pre-season and now he played the game tonight, 70-80 minutes at Anfield for the first team.
