Liverpool stepped up their pre-season preparations with two wins over Bologna on Thursday.
The back-to-back 60-minute friendlies gave Jurgen Klopp the chance to give more returning players match time ahead of the new season a week on Saturday.
Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored in a 2-0 win in the first game, then Takumi Minamino scored in the 1-0 win in the second.
More importantly, Virgil van Dijk managed 45 minutes of action as he returns to full fitness.
