Latest Liverpool news: Reds make it consecutive pre-season wins after defeating Bradford 3-1

Liverpool racked up a second consecutive pre-season win after defeating Bradford 3-1.

The pre-season game was scheduled to raise funds for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, which was set up by former Liverpool defender Stephen Darby after he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

Liverpool were able to recall Dejan Lovren into the side while our goalkeeping options were limited.

Simon Mignolet played in both halves as Jurgen Klopp mixed his team around.

Simon Mignolet in action

James Milner scored a pair, one being a spot-kick, while Rhian Brewster also notched up a goal to keep his scoring streak going.

The youngster scored a brace in our previous clash and was pleased with playing the game.

Eoin Doyle pulled a late goal back in the second half after Adam Lewis conceded a penalty, but this was another outing to get the players back to fitness.

Fabinho also played in the second pre-season game of our campaign, and he should be an important figure for the Reds over the next nine months.

Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson also impressed for the Reds but were unfortunate not to score a goal.

Mignolet also had a couple of quality saves to show for and hopefully, he remains injury free for the remainder of the pre-season.

Liverpool prepare for US trip

The club’s release added that the Reds will now head off to North America for the next part of the pre-season.
