Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of the Far East with a dominant 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in Singapore.

Jordan Henderson gave the Reds a first-half lead, sweeping home first-time from Harvey Elliott’s lay-off after only 12 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp named a completely different XI for the second half, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara and new signing Darwin Nunez all summoned.

And they extended their lead within two minutes of the restart, Salah’s deflected shot squirming through the grasp of Palace keeper Vicente Guaita for 2-0.

Having lost 4-0 against Manchester United in their previous game, in Bangkok on Tuesday, Klopp will have been pleased to see his side end their Asian trip with a victory. Next up comes a trip to Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig on Thursday.
