    Dejan Lovren clears the ball for Liverpool against Milan

    Liverpool beat AC Milan 2-0 in the International Champions Cup.


    Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino netted the goals in the second half in what proved to be a fairly comfortable victory for the Reds.

    England duo Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana both had good chances to make the score more comfortable, but neither could find the finish.

    Origi also had a goal chalked off in the second half as Jurgen Klopp’s side demonstrated their superior quality.

    But the German manager was unhappy with the wastefulness in front of goal and wants to see his players “finish” their chances with more consistency.


    “I’m pleased with our performance, especially the first half.” he said.

    “We passed and we passed and we passed until we were through. We created chances and we didn’t score. Of course we need to finish.”

    Belgian international Origi did show some ruthlessness in front of goal when he opened the scoring shortly before the hour mark as he cut in from the left before finishing into the far corner of the Milan goal.

    Sheyi Ojo’s cross a few minutes later was slid in at the far post by Firmino as the Brazil international doubled the advantage for Liverpool.

    The squad will return from the US this week after a final tour game against Roma before facing Spanish champions Barcelona at Wembley in a preseason friendly next season. The La Liga giants beat Celtic 3-1 in Dublin yesterday.
