Ruthless Reds Crush Fleetwood

Club Friendly

Result: Fleetwood Town 0-5 Liverpool

Date: 13 July 2016

Venue: Highbury

Liverpool proved too strong for League One outfit, Fleetwood Town, as they romped to a 5-0 win in their second pre-season friendly.

The Reds were awarded a penalty in the 13th minute when Marko Grujic was brought down in the box. Danny Ings stepped up but saw his spot-kick saved by Chris Neal.

However, Liverpool were not to be denied five minutes later, as Alberto Moreno's low cross found, Grujic, who slammed home from close range to mark his debut with goal.

Grujic was proving to be a real threat for the Premier League outfit and nearly doubled the lead in the 22nd minute, as he rattled the upright with a strike from a tight angle.

Jurgen Klopp's side continued to dominate as the half went on, but failed to add to their tally, as they went into the break one-goal up.

Liverpool doubled their lead in the 52nd minute, as Ryan Kent fired a low cross into the box, where Ben Woodburn was on hand to tap home, 2-0.

Lucas managed to get his name on the score-sheet in the 68th minute, as the Brazilian turned home Kent's low cross with a composed finish for Liverpool's third.

The Reds added a fourth goal three minutes later through Roberto Firminho's strike from the edge of the box, after Woodburn was initially denied by substitute goalkeeper, Alex Cairns.

Klopp's charges managed to round off the scoring in stoppage time, as Firminho grabbed his second of the game by turning home Woodburn's low cross, 5-0.
