Liverpool's £34 million man Sadio Mane opened the scoring on 15 minutes, before Divock Origi and Marko Grujic added the third and fourth goal of the rout in the second half after Javier Mascherano's earlier own goal.

"It's a friendly game and I don't want to overestimate this game but it's still good for us," he told the club's official website.

"We didn't think before the game we are one level with Barca and we don't think after the game we are on a higher level than Barca - we are not crazy."

Liverpool visit Arsenal next Sunday and those on the red half of the North London divide might be a little nervy on the back of seeing the Reds' result.
