    Hertha Berlin 0-3 Liverpool

    Mo Salah is eveywhere. This might be a friendly but he's putting in the hard miles. There has been a decent tempo to this game and the Reds, with a set of fresh legs on the pitch, are finishing strongly.

    Around 10 minutes to go. This has been a solid workout for the Reds in front of a 54,279 crowd. Liverpool's next test after this is against German champions Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

  6. YELLOW CARD

    Hertha Berlin 0-3 Liverpool

    Ryan Kent is making Hertha full-back Peter Pekarík look very ordinary. Pekarik is getting the run around and eventually drags the 20-year-old to the ground - an act which earns him a deserved yellow card.

    Young Ryan Kent, who has spent time on loan at Coventry City and Barnsley, is getting some first-team minutes under his belt while Jon Flanagan has also just come on.

    Daniel Sturridge goes close to a fourth. A jinking run ends in a diving save by Hertha's keeper.

  10. GOAL - Hertha Berlin 0-3 Liverpool

    Mohamed Salah

    What a lovely goal.

    Liverpool are turning on the style and Mohamed Salah lobs the keeper from distance after a deliciously-weighted pass by Philippe Coutinho.

    Coutinho-Salah...a combination which promises goals in 2017-18.

    "Divock Origi did not start Liverpool's pre-season friendly with Hertha Berlin on Saturday as planned after feeling tightness in his hamstring," reads a Liverpool statement.

    "The striker was due to begin the contest, but was withdrawn from the line-up during the warm up as a precautionary measure."
