Liverpool arrive in Australia after win in Thailand


Liverpool arrive in Brisbane today following an easy win overnight against a Thai Premier League All Stars XI in Bangkok as Reds fever sweeps Australia once again.

As Raheem Sterling was completing his medical for a move to Manchester City, the Reds were showing they might be able to cope without their star winger with a comfortable 4-0 win.

Despite heavy rain at the Rajamangala National Stadium, a huge crowd turned out to see the EPL club and they made a cracking start.

Lazar Markovic gave Liverpool the lead inside three minutes, steaming onto Joao Teixeira’s through-ball to round the ‘keeper and slot home from a narrow angle.
