Liverpool thump Blackburn 6-0 with Minamino, Matip on scoresheet

Liverpool thumped Blackburn Rovers 6-0 in today's friendly at Anfield this afternoon.

The Reds warmed up for their return to Premier League action against Everton at Goodison Park by thrashing Championship opposition on home turf.

First-team regulars Naby Keita, Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Joel Matip all got on the scoresheet for the hosts, while academy hopefuls Ki-Jana Hoever and Leighton Clarkson also netted.

A convincing victory over Tony Mowbray's men represents the perfect preparation for the resumption of top-flight action next week.
