Ryan Gravenberch put in a stellar performance in his full debut for Liverpool as they opened their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 win at LASK on Thursday.

While many of his team-mates underwhelmed for most of the game, the Dutch midfielder showed his strength, tidy passing and ability to kick-start attacks to keep the pressure on a tough Austrian defence.

Liverpool fell behind less than 15 minutes into the clash through a Florian Flecker effort from outside the box and, despite dominating possession, the Reds had a hard time creating clear chances until Darwin Nunez fired in a penalty before the hour mark.

From then on, the visitors had more luck opening their opponents up and Gravenberch was pivotal in them going ahead, sending an excellent ball into the box from the right wing for Luis Diaz to smash beyond LASK goalkeeper Tobias Lawal.

Liverpool were comfortable from then on and it was no surprise to see Salah tuck home a third, having been a lively presence since his second-half introduction.
