Daniel Sturridge sealed the scoring by steering in a header from Shaqiri's neat chipped cross at the 87'th minutes.
 Fabinho missed a penalty kick at 17'th minutes which was gotten after Sadio Mane had been fouled in the box, this would have been the reds opening goal.

Main while West Ham will be visiting Anfield for the Premier League opener on Sunday, Klopp withdrew most of his first string, giving run-outs to the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana, Danny Ings and Marko Grujic and Xherdan Shaqiri.
