Liverpool have wrapped up their first game on the China tour and what a thriller it was. If we are going to get this kind of entertainment this coming season from the Reds then we are set for a long happy season.

Dalglish opted to start with an experimental side as he left Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll on the bench. The starting lineup was: Gulacsi, Flanagan, Kelly, Carragher, Wilson, Poulsen, Spearing, Shelvey, Cole, Pacheco, Ngog. Subs: Jones, Hansen, Agger, Kyrgiakos, Robinson, Wisdom, Adam, Aquilani, Coady, Kuyt, Carroll.
Adam was able to make his Liverpool debut coming on in the second half.

Christian Poulsen of all people gave Liverpool the lead. David Ngog then made it 2-0 before Guangdong pulled one back. Conor Coady came on to make it three before Andy Carroll rounded it off for the Reds. Guangdong made a game of it by pulling two goals back.
