"We didn't have the possession we would have liked because of the quality they have as a team. On a few occasions we managed to get something interesting but we had problems getting into the box. I'm satisfied, but we need to work more", added the Welshman.

Liverpool got the win

The Reds dominated from first whistle to last at Singapore National Stadium, with Henderson’s goal arriving early on before Salah notched soon after half-time. Jürgen Klopp made 11 substitutions at the break and a further nine with around 15 minutes to play as more valuable match minutes were shared around the squad.

A starting line-up featuring the likes of Joel Matip and Luis Diaz along with Henderson was in the ascendancy from the off and the skipper’s goal came after just 12 minutes. James Milner located Harvey Elliott and the No.19 provided a cut-back from the byline that Henderson met with a precise, first-time finish into the far corner.

Virgil van Dijk, Darwin Nunez and Trent Alexander-Arnold were among those brought on and the right-back was instrumental in Liverpool’s second goal, which came a minute into the second period. Mohamed Salah and Alexander-Arnold linked up with a slick one-two and the Egyptian duly found the net with the aid of some suspect goalkeeping from Guaita.
