Liverpool finished their pre-season on a high with a 3-1 win over Torino in the final friendly before their season opener against West Ham United on Sunday.
LFC fans will now hope the team is even stronger and more balanced in the right areas to challenge more strongly for the Premier League in 2018/19.
Firmino turned provider, sliding a pass through for Georginio Wijnaldum to slam home but Andrea Belotti headed the visitors back into the contest after the half hour. "I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad", Robertson added.
Everybody's still got his back... for now, at least. Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.
Three minutes later, Wijnaldum rounded off a well-worked team move with a neat finish to double the hosts' lead.
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson is backing new signing Alisson to showcase his skills not only as a goalkeeper but as a playmaker at Anfield.
Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports how Alisson's arrival will be a massive boost in confidence at the club after the drama of the Champions League final.
The Reds have invested £67 million ($87m) worth of faith in the Brazil global after losing trust in last season's goalkeeping options.
Shaqiri and Sturridge were the two Liverpool replacements to stand out and they combined for their third goal on 87 minutes, with the former Stoke City winger dinking a subtle cross over the Italian defence which Sturridge glanced inside the post.
That combines with the £75m purchase of Virgil van Dijk in January as Liverpool look for their first ever Premier League title.
