LIVERPOOL STARTED THEIR pre-season schedule with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brøndby on Wednesday night.

It was a much different Liverpool team from the one that pushed Manchester City so close in the Premier League last year and tonight marked their first game since Luis Suarez made his way out of Anfield.

The Reds fell behind in the first half when Christian Noergaard scored from the edge of the area but looked to have forced a draw after Swedish tennager Kristoffer Peterson levelled not long after the restart.

However, in injury time, sub Ferhan Hasani took advantage of some lax Liverpool defending to score Brøndby’s winner:
