Liverpool Thrash Blackburn in Friendly ahead of Premier League Return


Liverpool ramped up their preparations for the return of the Premier League with a 6-0 friendly victory over Blackburn behind closed doors at Anfield.

Sadio Mane fired the Premier League leaders in front inside 10 minutes, converting a rebound after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had a shot saved.

Takumi Minamino laid on the second for Naby Keita before the January signing got in on the act himself, turning Mane’s cross home before half-time.

Second-half goals from Joel Matip, Ki-Jana Hoever and Leighton Clarkson then completed the resounding victory for the Reds.

Klopp’s side, on the verge of the club’s first domestic title in 30 years, will be back in action at the Merseyside derby in Everton on Sunday, June 21.
