Liverpool's second pre-season friendly of the summer saw them take the short trip up the M6 to face Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday afternoon.

Coming so soon after the opening friendly against Brondby in Copenhagen on Wednesday, it was another good test of the fitness, especially on a humid afternoon in the north west.

Second half goals from Suso and Kristoffer Peterson, both assisted by Jordon Ibe, gave Brendan Rodgers' side a 2-1 win. 

The match also saw the debuts of Emre Can and Rickie Lambert.

Here are six things we learned from the match.
