According to the Liverpool Echo, Fabinho picked up a knock during Liverpool's 3-1 win over Serie A side Torino at Anfield and sat out of training on Thursday as he aims to be fit for the Premier League opener on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge scored the goals at Anfield, which hosted its first club friendly for four years.

Liverpool had to spend big to give Klopp a chance to compete with Manchester City in the Premier League and to have another go at winning the Champions League and I applaud the club and the manager for showing real ambition ahead of this new season.

'We all know they needed a goalkeeper and they've got one of the best in Brazilian Alisson, while Virgil van Dijk now has his feet under the table as the team's defensive leader. Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.

Liverpool would score on two occasions moments later.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

The Reds did not finish with a single player who started the game and eight of Torino's own changes took the sting out of the game.

Liverpool have looked impressive during their preparations for the new season, which they will begin by welcoming West Ham to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
