Liverpool 1 Lyon 3: Mo Salah misses penalty and Harvey Elliott injured as strong Reds XI beaten by Alex Lacazette double | The Sun
A STRONG Liverpool side stuttered to a 3-1 friendly defeat against Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup.
Former Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette scored twice for the French side – who were comfortably beaten 3-0 by the Gunners on Thursday.
Fabio Carvalho had got Liverpool off to the perfect start, scoring in the first minute after Mo Salah saw an effort blocked.
Usually so reliable from 12 yards, Salah then missed a penalty to put the Reds 2-0 up in the 14th minute.
There was a blow when Harvey Elliott went off injured, with Lacazette levelling things up just before the break.
Elliott headed straight down the tunnel after being replaced on the half hour mark.
