Liverpool’s finished their pre-season preparations with a disappointing 4-0 defeat against German side Mainz on Sunday.

One of the players in action was summer signing Joel Matip, who made his first appearance since suffering an injury against Wigan Athletic last month. And while the Cameroon international struggled to make much impact on the match and keep the score line respectable he was lacking match fitness and playing alongside some inexperienced teammates.
