Jurgen Klopp will consider starting both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday after their impressive return to the side last night.
Liverpool have struggled for results and rhythm during pre-season but after three defeats and a draw they looked significantly sharper in a 3-1 win over Lyon.
Firmino and Salah returned to training on Monday after their summer break and, despite having only taken part in four sessions at Liverpool’s training camp in the French town of Evian, their presence made a big difference.
Firmino played the first half hour and scored Liverpool’s equaliser with a drilled finish, while Salah’s pace and skill lifted them as an attacking unit. He was substituted at half-time as Liverpool used 27 players in total.
