Liverpool ended their pre-season tour of the USA with a 2-2 draw against Sporting Lisbon at the Yankee Stadium.

The sides shared the Western Union Cup after the scores remained tied at the final whistle in New York.

An error from Simon Mignolet gave Sporting an early lead after four minutes, with Bruno Fernandes’ shot from 30 yards bouncing through the goalkeeper’s hands.

Liverpool then upped the tempo and Divock Origi levelled things up on a rebound from close range in the 20th minute.

Several more chances to score followed, before Georginio Wijnaldum secured the advantage just before the break following a cross from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

But Klopp’s men did not stay out in front for long, as Wendel tied the scores once again eight minutes into the second half.

Neither side was able to find a breakthrough during the remainder of the match.

The friendly saw the long-awaited debut for Liverpool’s summer signing Sepp Van Den Berg after he was granted international clearance by Fifa.

The 17-year-old, who arrived last month from PEC Zwolle for an initial £1.3million fee, was brought on in the 89th minute.

Right back: Nathaniel Clyne

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament.

Clyne suffered the injury in Liverpool’s pre-season friendly with Borussia Dortmund in New York on Friday.

The 28-year-old right-back, who spent last season on loan at fellow Premier League side Bournemouth, was sidelined for most of the 2017-18 season with a back injury.
