Hertha Berlin 0 Liverpool 3: Coutinho captain amid Barca links and Mane returns in classy win

Philippe Coutinho captained Liverpool despite continued reports he is nearing a move to Barcelona and Sadio Mane made his return from injury as the Reds outclassed Hertha Berlin 3-0 on Saturday.

Coutinho played a sublime ball to Mohamed Salah, who provided an equally exquisite finish for his third pre-season goal since joining from Roma.

Liverpool were already 2-0 up at half-time as close-season signing Dominic Solanke, whose inclusion was a late one due to hamstring tightness for Divock Origi, headed home before Georginio Wijnaldum stroked in the second.

In another boost for Jurgen Klopp, Mane – who set up Wijnaldum's goal – came through 45 minutes in his first outing since undergoing knee surgery in April, while Andrew Robertson made his debut after joining from Hull City in the second half.
