Dominic Solanke continues to impress for Liverpool in pre-season

Solanke stepped in for the injured Divock Origi and added another goal in an impressive pre-season since his switch from Chelsea.

The England U20 star looped a header over the Berlin goalkeeper to give Liverpool the lead in the 15th minute at the Olympic Stadium.

The Reds looked sharper and fitter than their opponents, giving them problems all day with Klopp’s famed pressing system.

Mane almost created a goal for himself after winning the ball back high up the pitch, but blazed over from eight yards.

Georginio Wijnaldum did double Liverpool’s advantage before the interval thanks to Solanke pressing and winning back possession.

The Dutch midfielder slotted into the bottom corner from the edge of the area to put Klopp’s men 2-0 in front.

The Reds boss rang the changes in the second half in his home land, bringing on Salah, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge.

Coutinho once again proved his worth to the Reds with a stunning 50-yard through ball to Salah for Liverpool’s third goal on the hour.

The Barcelona target cut apart Berlin’s defence and Salah was first on the scene, using his pace to beat two defenders and the goalkeeper to the ball before chipping home.

Speaking after the game, Klopp was full of praise for his side and Salah.

He said: “We were good, there was a lot of good football around, we had to fight a little bit more, tactically we were not so good though.

“We needed to be a little bit more compact, but it was a mature performance.

“Mo Salah, wonderful goal – we had three sessions on Friday, it was really intense for both teams, it was a good test, we are okay.

“We had a few really good situations and a few not so good situations, but I am happy. Andy was good, Sadio is getting better.
