Firmino Scores as Liverpool Beat Lyon

Liverpool warmed up for their Community Shield meeting against Manchester City with a 3-1 win over Lyon.

The European champions welcomed back Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Alisson from their international exertions, but the latter was culpable as Lyon took a fourth-minute lead through Memphis Depay in Geneva.

Firmino tucked away an equaliser before Liverpool hit the front through Joachim Andersen's own goal and Harry Wilson scored a superb third in a second half more notable for the volume of substitutions made.

It means the end to a four-match winless run in pre-season for Jurgen Klopp's side, who lost 3-0 to Napoli in Edinburgh last weekend and now turn attention towards Sunday's traditional curtain-raiser for the English season at Wembley.
