Rickie Lambert was one of a plethora of substitutes used by Brendan Rodgers on Sunday.
Rodgers introduced a smattering of substitutes throughout this last pre-season friendly in order to give his first XI a much-needed rest and to cast an eye over some fresher faces prior to the Premier League’s commencement.
Martin Kelly (on for Javier Manquillo, 84 minutes): 6
Forgotten man Martin Kelly came on for outstanding debutante Manquillo, and he did little wrong.
Jose Enrique (on for Glen Johnson, 62 minutes): 6
Spanish left-back Jose Enrique has struggled for fitness over the past several months, and this cameo appearance will have provided a much-needed workout.
Lucas Leiva (on for Emre Can, 46 minutes): 6
Lucas finds himself low down on the Liverpool pecking order following the signing of Can, and this second-half outing may be one of few this season.
Joe Allen (on for Jordan Henderson, 79 minutes): 6
Tenacious Welshman Joe Allen replaced the impressive Henderson, but he had little to do in the centre of midfield.
Jordon Ibe (on for Philippe Coutinho, 71 minutes): 6
The promising Jordon Ibe barely touched the ball against Dortmund.
Rickie Lambert (on for Daniel Sturridge, 75 minutes): 6
A dream outing for new signing Rickie Lambert—a return to Anfield after having been a schoolboy with the club two decades ago—but the striker failed to impose himself within Liverpool’s system.
