Photos: Liverpool players in action against Adelaide United

Liverpool continued their fine pre-season form with a victory and a clean-sheet in their final match in Australia.

Liverpool defeated Adelaide United 2-0 in their pre-season friendly on Monday with summer signings James Milner and Danny Ings getting the goals.

That makes it three consecutive summer victories for Brendan Rodgers’ side and of all the players on show it was Jordon Ibe who really caught the eye.

The 19-year-old set up the opening goal for Milner and looked a constant threat, suggesting that Raheem Sterling’s Anfield departure could in time be little more than a footnote in the outstanding career of his fellow winger Ibe.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne set up Ings for the second and Rodgers will have been pleased by what he saw.

Liverpool have impressed with their recent spending but the trick for Rodgers is to ensure he has not just an impressive bunch of players but a coherent and effective squad for the challenges ahead.

On the evidence of this summer he is definitely heading in the right direction and above and below you can see images from Liverpool’s latest encounter:
