Raheem Sterling marked his first pre-season start for Liverpool by scoring the only goal of the game in a comfortable win for Liverpool. The game also saw first pre-season run outs for international team mates of Raheem Sterling – Steven Gerrard (now retired) and Daniel Sturridge.
Lazar Markovic, a £20 million signing from Benfica, made an impressive 45 minute debut in the game, adding another attacking option for Liverpool as they look to try and replace some of the impetus they recently lost with the £75 million sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, and the Loic Remy deal falling through due to a failed medical.
Liverpools next opponents are Premier League opposition in Manchester City, who they play at the Yankee Stadium on Wednesday.
