Liverpool continued their pre-season with another win on Sunday afternoon as they beat Wigan 2-1.

It was their third win of pre-season for the Reds in what has been a positive build up to the campaign for Jurgen Klopp’s men so far.

They have already beaten Tranmere Rovers and Fleetwood Town this summer, and goals from Danny Ings and Ben Woodburn helped them maintain their 100% record.

The game was most notable for the return of Philippe Coutinho, who had been handed an extended break following his exertions with Brazil at the Copa America.

It was a fine return from the Reds star man too, as he twice hit the Wigan bar during a 45 minute run out.

It will be striker Ings who pleased the manager most though as he bagged his third goal is as many games as he continues his push towards full fitness.

Unfortunately it was not all good news as new signing Joel Matip limped off with an injury, although the German boss was quick to allay any fears following the game.

Here is a collection of the best images from the win:
