Goals from Mane, Salah and Sturidge secures victory for Jurgen Klopp in Germany, however Daniel Sturridge's injury remains only the negative in the night of positives for Klopp.

"A thorough examination by FC Bayern's medical unit revealed that the Columbian sustained a muscle injury to his right thigh in the 3-0 Audi Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool".

"I am really happy we still have one and a half weeks and we don't have to play again tomorrow".

The Reds hammered Bayern Munich 3-0 to reach the final, while Atletico beat Napoli 2-1. "We don't start a season by not having any ambitions", the affable and energetic German said.

Sturridge's career has been blighted by a string of injuries over the last three seasons. Speaking in the post-match press conference, he said he was anxious by Bayern Munich's preseason form and demanded his underperforming side "change attitude and spirit", having seen his side lose to both Milanese clubs on their 12-day summer tour of South East Asia and also succumbed to Arsenal in a penalty shootout.

"It's a shame and I hope it's nothing serious". I've not missed many sessions here, they have looked after me.

It was a delightful comeback for Sadio Mane who scored the first goal for Liverpool after a knee injury which ended his 2016/17 season early during a competitive match with Everton.

"So I'm feeling great, the best I have felt for a while".

"I am able to play every forward position".

However Liverpool were exceptional and going into a season with European football it'll be interesting to see whether they can replicate their performance against a strong Atletico Madrid side.

Liverpool are expected to name a completely different eleven against La Liga side Atleti as they go looking for another pre-season tournament triumph after their success in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
