Liverpool prepared for their Premier League opening day visit to Stoke next Saturday with a comfortable 2-0 win at HJK Helsinki on Saturday.

Divock Origi and Philippe Coutinho were on the scoresheet for Liverpool in the second half and a new signing in James Milner bagged both assists.

Hugely underrated throughout his career at Manchester City, Aston Villa and for England, Liverpool fans hope Milner will be a key addition this summer.

The England midfielder is not one of the biggest names for Liverpool supporters having joined on a free transfer at the beginning of the transfer window.

Yet, Milner provides plenty of quality and looks set to play in the middle of the park in an energetic partnership with Jordan Henderson.

Unfortunately for Milner, he is the direct replacement for departing Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard but his industrious qualities will likely be appreciated at Anfield.

And, with Milner’s fine crossing ability and set-piece know-how, the former Aston Villa man could also be a decent option for the Fantasy Premier League in 2015/2016.

See how Liverpool fans hailed James Milner during the friendly win over HJK Helsiniki on Saturday.
