  • The whistle goes for full-time and Liverpool have produced an impressive performance to sweep aside Borussia Dortmund 4-0. They kept the intensity high throughout and were slick in possession as Sturridge, Lovren, Coutinho and Henderson all scored, whiel they were also very solid at the back as Dortmund failed to threaten.

  • Liverpool have not let their guard down for a second in this match and continue to be fluent with their passing as the clock ticks down.

  • Bandowski lets fly with a powerful shot from 25 yards but it is straight at Skrtel and bounces away to safety.

  • Manquillo thanks the fans for their applause as he is replaced by Kelly. He has been impressive today but there will be much sterner tests to come.

  • Lambert tries to latch on to a long pass from the back but there is just too much pace on the ball and Langerak comes out to gather.

  • Liverpool will be delighted with their display today but will now just want to see it out and keep a clean sheet.

  • Another Liverpool change sees Allen replace Henderson for the closing stages.

  • Lambert is warmly welcomed on to the pitch as he comes on for goalscorer Sturridge. Dortmund, meanwhile, take off Jolic and bring on Amini.

  • Immobile has tried to inject some life into Dortmund and he causes a problem here as his shot takes a deflection off Lovren and loops just over Mignolet's bar.

  • Henderson's inviting cross from the right is cleared to safety by Papastathopoulos, who had to twist his body to flick it away.

  • The fans rise to give Coutinho a standing ovation as he is replaced by Ibe. The Brazilian has been excellent today.

  • Mass substitutions can spoil pre-season games and here is another one for Dortmund, with Bandowski on for Aubameyang.

  • Groans go up around the ground as a pass is played forward towards Sturridge, but he was in an offside position and knew it as he veered away from the ball.

  • Sterling seems to have boundless energy, as he continues to torment the Dortmund full-back with his pace and trickery.

  • Liverpool will be full of confidence ahead of their first Premier League game next weekend. Southampton will be their opponents and Ronald Koeman is at Anfield today, no doubt feeling slightly nervous.

  • Liverpool bring on Enrique for Johnson at left-back, as Dortmund replace Mkhitaryan with Ji.

  • GOAL! Henderson adds a fourth for Liverpool. There is a hint of offside in the build-up and it looks as though Coutinho's low cross then goes out of play, but the flag does not go up as Sturridge tries to keep it in. The striker then shows good composure to pick out Henderson and give him the simplest of finishes.

  • Dortmund make another change as Grosskreutz comes on for Piszczek.

  • Johnson unleashes a ferocious strike with his left foot from the edge of the area which crashes into the face of Schmelzer, who goes down instantly due to the force of the impact before gingerly returning to his feet.

  • A lovely passage of play from Liverpool sees Johnson, Coutinho and Henderson work the ball to Manquillo on the overlap, but his first-time cross is cut out.
