Liverpool beat Singapore 5-0 on Sunday to snap a three-game preseason winless streak.

Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin opened the scoring in first-half injury time after a slow start by the Reds. Liverpool secured the result with second-half goals by Fernando Torres, Albert Riera and a brace from Krisztian Nemeth.

"We had five goals with different players so I'm really pleased," Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez said. "Every single day we are improving physically."

Liverpool, which had five Spanish internationals arrive late for preseason training after taking part in the Confederations Cup, was winless in friendlies this year. A 1-1 draw against Thailand on Wednesday followed a 1-0 defeat by Rapid Vienna and a scoreless draw against Swiss club St. Gallen.

The team picked up two injuries in the Thailand game as first-choice central defender Martin Skrtel strained his right hamstring and forward Nabil El Zhar damaged a right knee ligament. Both returned to Britain for treatment last week.
