Caoimhin Kelleher is relieved he only has to come up against Liverpool's sublime forwards in training.

The Reds' deep attacking arsenal was on display again in the win at LASK in the Europa League on Thursday night, with Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah all getting on the scoresheet.

The exciting Ben Doak also made his first start for the club in Austria, as Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo were attack-minded options on the bench for Jürgen Klopp to consider.

"I think in the last few games we've scored a lot of goals," Kelleher told post-match. "That forward line is scary at times and there's a lot of depth to it as well.

"Whoever is starting, there's players to come off the bench that can cause problems. I'm happy that I only face them in training!"

Kelleher enjoyed a return to the Liverpool goal for the 3-1 victory at Raiffeisen Arena.

He was beaten by a terrific strike from LASK's Florian Flecker for the game's opening goal, before the Reds then turned it around in the second half.

Jürgen Klopp's verdict on LASK 1-3 Liverpool

Press conferenceJürgen Klopp's verdict on LASK 1-3 LiverpoolJürgen Klopp was happy with what he felt was a deserved win for Liverpool as they came from a goal down to beat LASK 3-1 in the Europa League.

The Republic of Ireland international reflected: "It's my first competitive game since Southampton. Same as outfielders, there's always that bit of rustiness.

"It was nice to get out there and hopefully I can play a few more games in this competition.

"We didn't play great first half but he [Klopp] said there were some good things that we were doing in the first half, that we should just keep them going.

"The key messages were just that we were playing some good football, it was just maybe some indecisiveness and just a bit of sloppiness in the first half. So we switched that out and luckily scored three great goals."
