Liverpool's centre back shortage not a problem for Jürgen Klopp

The Liverpool Echo's Ian Doyle gave Fabinho a 5 out 10 for his performance in the Reds' 3-1 pre-season victory over Torino at Anfield.

Henderson, who helped England to a fourth-placed finish at the World Cup, impressed his manager with his fitness levels and played 20 minutes in Tuesday's 3-1 pre-season win over Torino.

It was the Egyptian's pressing on the edge of the box which saw him dispossess Tomas Rincon in the build-up to Liverpool's 16th-minute penalty.

However, it was Fabinho who perhaps got off to the worst possible start. Wijnaldum and Salah combined to set up Firmino for a shot that deflected into the top corner off Lorenzo De Silvestri.

There are some left and you can get them here.

It didn't take too long for Liverpool to make amends however.

Henderson's substitute appearance against Torino on Tuesday night came just two days after he began pre-season training following his post-World Cup break.

Liverpool's weakness in the goalkeeper position has been addressed with the purchase of Brazilian Alisson from AS Roma and with Virgil van Dijk having settled in following his move in January, Klopp's side look a much more complete package. One of the main things I was asked about after the game was: "'Can he really play as the No.6?' I said: "'Yes, he can and he will.' He had to learn and he had to improve and that's exactly what he did".
