Liverpool started their pre-season campaign with a comfortable 4-0 win over Le Havre at Anfield. In a game Liverpool dominated from the first minute it was Balotelli who opened the scoring after 23 minutes when he was found unmarked 8 yards out by Manquillo the Italian headed past the helpless de Pinho, Liverpool doubled their lead 6 minutes before half time Sturridge cutting in from the right he used a burst of pace to dodge past 2 players before slotting past de Pinho at his near post. Liverpool made it 3-0 5 minutes into the 2nd half Lovren broke out of defence before playing Balotelli through the Italian waited for the keeper to commit before passing to Sturridge who slid the ball into the empty net. Then came the best goal of the game an amazing team goal that consisted of 23 passes being finished off with a lovely one two between Balotelli and Sterling with the Italian firing past de Pinho to complete a comfortable win for Liverpool after the game we spoke to Jorge Jesus.
Q: Jorge a comfortable win in your first game in charge what did you make of your sides performance?
A: Today was a great team performance we pressed Le Havre high up and attacked with intelligence. I told the players they have to be fit playing for me because I want them closing opponents down and today they played very well we had a hard working mentality which is important for me.
Q: Balotelli got man of the match he has a lot of critics what did you make of his performance?
A: Today Mario played fantastic. He worked hard when we didn’t have the ball but he when we had it he was even better he showed it all goals, creativity, strength, pace and skill it was a complete performance.
Q: Was todays team the team likely to start on the opening day against Southampton?
A: They played well but other players will get their chance we still have 2 games in pre-season left for them to have an impact
We also caught up with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard
Q: Steven a tough couple of weeks for Liverpool with Brendan losing his job how it important was it Jorge started with a win today?
A: I think it was very important Brendan did a great job here but the club obviously wanted someone new and judging by what I’ve seen so far Jorge is a great coach
Q: Your last year at Liverpool do you think you can go out with a league title under Jorge?
A: Yeah, I certainly hope so anyway but it’s a long season and after coming so close last year we want to win it this time around we just need to get off to a good start.

Personally not a fan of the red square in the middle of the scores, but it works and draws attention.
Liking the Q&A though!
