    • 84' It's been a solid display by the new signing, although he can expect to be tested more in the Premier League than he has been today.
    • 83' Liverpool sub: Kelly on, Manquillo off.
    • 79' Dortmund are keeping the ball well at the moment in the hope to at least avoid a fifth Liverpool goal.
    • 76' Liverpool sub: Lambert on, Sturridge off.
    • 74' Dortmund will be pleased to see the back of Coutinho, who has run the show for Liverpool. Rodgers will be hoping the Brazilian can take that form into the new season.
    • 72' Liverpool sub: Ibe on, Coutinho off. Standing ovation for Coutinho, who has been superb for Liverpool today.
    • 70' Dortmund sub: Bandowski on, Aubamayeng off.
    • 68' Sterling has been very bright for Liverpool and he looks to release Sturridge, but the ball is just too close to the goalkeeper.
    • 65' Dortmund sub: Dong-Won Ji on, Mkhitayran off.
    • 63' While Liverpool have been impressive, this has been a woeful display by Dortmund. They've been careless in defence and lacked any potency going forward. Klopp seems to be seeing the funny side, at least.
    • 61' GOAL! Henderson taps in for 4-0 Liverpool! Sturridge does well to keep the ball in, beats Schmelzer and crosses for Henderson, who bundles in from close-range.
    • 58' Liverpool not settling for three here, they're still pushing.
    • 56' Grosskreutz is on for Dortmund, with Piszczek making way.
    • 53' Dortmund win a free kick wide right but Schmelzer hopelessly over hits it and the ball flies out for a Liverpool goal kick. That sums up Dortmund's performance today.
    • 51' Nice play by Liverpool again as Sterling races into acres of space on the left and plays in Coutinho, but this time the forward swivels but cannot get a proper shot away.
    • 48' GOAL! Coutinho scores for Liverpool! The best player on the pitch gets the goal his performance deserves, slotting in from the angle after being played in by Sterling. 3-0 Reds!
    • 47' Liverpool sub: Lucas on, Can off.
    • 46' SECOND HALF. We're back underway at Anfield.
    • 45' HT Liverpool 2-0 Borussia Dortmund.
    • 44' Gerrard goes close! Liverpool win a free-kick 25 yards out, which the captain hammers at goal - but Langarek tips it over the bar. Great effort by the Reds skipper.
    • 42' The corner is cleared and Liverpool are back in possession. It's been a very satisafctory half for Brendan Rodgers's men.
    • 40' Mkhitayran has a go from 25 yards. The low shot takes a touch off a Liverpool man for a Dortmund corner. Liverpool have restricted the visitors to those kinds of efforts all half.
    • 37' Coutinho has been a real livewire so far. Dortmund just haven't been able to track his runs but this time the Brazilian is unable to find Sturridge.
    • 35' Dortmund know they need a goal before half time to get themselves a foothold in the game and Ramos has a go from distance but... well, the less said about it the better. 10 minutes until half time.
    • 33' Sterling puts the ball out of play after an injury to a Dortmund player. Jurgen Klopp then asks the fourth official why a free kick wasn't awarded. Play is back underway.
    • 31' Good spell of possession by Dortmund but the move ends when Gerrard, who was shielding the ball to Mignolet, was felled.
    • 29' Another corner for Dortmund as Mkhitaryan's shot from Aubameyang's cross from the right is deflected out of play.
    • 28' Aubameyang looks to latch onto Kirch's through ball but Skrtel is alert to the danger and makes the interception. Well read by the Liverpool defender.
    • 27' First decent chance for Dortmund falls to Jojic, whose long range effort clips off a Liverpool leg for a corner.
    • 25' Emre Can vs Ramos in the middle of the park is one of the more intriguing battles out there. Can certainly looks like the midfield enforcer Liverpool have been missing.
    • 23' Coutinho pulling the strings here so far.
    • 22' Chance for Liverpool! The superb Coutinho picks out Sterling with a brilliant through ball, but Sterling cannot take advantage in front of goal.
    • 21' Nice move again by Liverpool. Sterling loses his man on the left and picks out Coutinho, whose first-time shot flies wide of the post.
    • 20' Dortmund have woken up and are seeing more of the ball now. Schmelzer makes a good run down the left but can't quite keep the ball in play.
    • 18' Nice breakaway by Liverpool but Sturridge is just offside from Gerrard's first-time through ball.
    • 16' Liverpool are rampant here. Playing with a real intensity that Dortmund simply cannot match at the moment.
    • 14' GOAL! Lovren makes it 2-0 to Liverpool! The Reds' new centre-back steals a yard in the box and buries his header from close range after being picked out by Gerrard's corner.
    • 12' Liverpool pressing again through Sterling down the left. The England winger forces another down the left.
    • 10' GOAL! Sturridge makes it 1-0 to Liverpool! The England striker peels away from his marker and stabs the ball under the on-rushing Langarek after a delightful flick by Coutinho. Neat finish and Liverpool take a deserved lead.
    • 7' Dortmund struggling to keep the ball here, it's been an impressive start by Liverpool, who are pressing very well.
    • 5' Dortmund being made to defend well in the early stages with Coutinho enjoying some bright touches.
    • 3' Liverpool, who are fielding a near full strength side from the start here, are enjoying the best of the early exchanges Some neat Liverpool passes on the edge of the box troubling Dortmund at the moment.
    • 1' KICK OFF. We're underway at Anfield.

    • 11:55 Apparently, both teams are able to make up to 11 substitutions today. Friendlies eh? Still, should be a good chance to see some of Liverpool's new signings up close, particularly Can, who is an intriguing prospect alongside captain Gerrard.
