Photos: Benteke scores on his debut; Firmino in action; Ojo nets winner

Anfield Night

A selection of images from Liverpool's last pre-season friendly of the summer.

Liverpool’s two most exciting summer signings made their debuts for the club this weekend when a Reds side took on Swindon Town in a pre-season friendly.

Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke both started the match in a surprisingly strong Liverpool line-up and the Belgian international scored his first goal for Brendan Rodgers’ side in a 2-1 win.

Substitute Sheyi Ojo scored Liverpool’s second goal and now the club will look ahead to their opening Premier League encounter with Stoke City next weekend.

Liverpool had been expected to play a young side against Swindon Town after many first-team stars played against Helsinki just 24 hours earlier, but the Reds’ strength in depth was clear to see on Sunday and only 16-year-old full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold was an unfamiliar name in the first XI.

More youngsters arrived in the second half, including Ojo and the promising Ryan Kent, but the day belonged to Benteke who could not have started his Liverpool career in finer style.

Above and below is a selection of images from the match:
