Kurz nach dem Wiederanpfiff legte Daniel Sturridge einen Ball auf Sheyi Ojo. Dieser umrundete den Torhüter, wurde zu Fall gebracht und Milner versenkte den fälligen Elfmeter. Wenige Minuten später schob Sturridge selbst zum vierten Treffer des Nachmittags ein.

Zwei Minuten vor dem Ende beendete Sturridge den Nachmittag mit dem 7-0 und sorgte so für einen perfekten, wenn auch eindeutigen Start in die Vorbereitung. Klopp freute sich entsprechend.
