Tranmere 0-6 Liverpool: Reds make flying start to pre-season schedule

Liverpool
thrashed Tranmere on Thursday night as Jurgen Klopp
's side began their busy pre-season schedule in style.
Nathaniel Clyne got the ball rolling with a fierce strike on six minutes, before Rhian Brewster bagged a brace to leave the Reds 3-0 up at half time.
Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Bobby Duncan, who is Steven Gerrard's cousin, added goals after the interval. 
Liverpool named two completely different XIs in each half.
Youth was mixed with experience as the likes of Simon Mignolet, James Milner and Adam Lallana started alongside Ryan Kent, Brewster and Yasser Larouci.
Mignolet has a very quiet 45 minutes but there was plenty of action at the other end.
Clyne got fans off their seats with a thunder bolt into the top corner from just inside the penalty area.

Tranmere's most famous fan was on the pitch in the shape of referee Mike Dean. He had an unusually quiet evening but did inadvertently play a one-two with Milner in the first half. 
Brewster was the star man, displaying razor-sharp finishing skills.
Jones made it 4-0 nine minutes after half time when he attacked Ben Woodburn's pinpoint low cross to rifle home.
Origi wore the captain's armband in the second half and he got on the scoresheet after collecting a Joel Matip through ball and dancing around the goalkeeper. 
The prize for biggest celebration of the night went to Duncan, who was visibly thrilled after scoring the first goal of his senior career.
The 18-year-old who is related to one of Liverpool's best ever players, punched the air in delight after finding the net following fine work from Ki-Jana Hoever.
Seemingly content with six goals, Liverpool ended the night with young goalkeeper Daniel Atherton playing up front after he came on for Paul Glatzel for the final 12 minutes.
