Liverpool bnoss Jurgen Klopp takes a selfies with fans after the pre-season friendly match at the Aviva Stadium Dublin

Former Reds captain Redknapp has backed Klopp's transfer business ahead of their season opener against West Ham United on Sunday.

Within a matter of minutes Georginio Wijnaldum was in for Liverpool's second of the night.

Liverpool completed their productive pre-season with a seventh win in nine friendlies, taking their goals tally to 26 in the process, as Jürgen Klopp's team defeated Torino 3-1 at Anfield.

A flurry of changes after the break interrupted the flow of the match and a late third from one of the substitutes - Daniel Sturridge - closed out a victory for Liverpool which they can add to pre-season wins over both Manchester clubs and Napoli.

Liverpool's first clash of the Premier League season is against West Ham on Sunday and Henderson says he'd understand if he didn't feature.

Everybody's still got his back... for now, at least. Summer signing Fabinho, who converted all 16 penalties he took for Monaco in Ligue 1, dragged the spot-kick wide. Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.

Wijnaldum then doubled the hosts advantage three minutes later with a attractive move that saw the Dutch worldwide sneak in behind the visitors defence before pelting the ball into the back of the net.

Alisson took to the pitch for the first time for his new Premier League club since he made the £56 move from Serie A side AS Roma earlier this summer.

Liverpool's Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane celebrate a goal.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered. Some nice inter-play between Salah and Firmino allowed the Brazilian in for the opening goal of the game.

The Champions League finalists will kick off as second favourites behind Manchester City, and they're seen as the Citizens' main rivals for a reason, as they dished out one of only two City defeats of the Premier League season previous year.
