Hertha had a chance to reduced the deficit in the 76th minute but Vladimir Stocker curling free-kick was tipped over the crossbar Simon Mignolet.
Mane nearly marked his return with a goal midway through the half when he got a couple of lucky ricochets in a row to break into the box, only to fire his volley over the crossbar when he should have done better. He is joined by Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and Alberto Moreno. Solanke fed Mane in the box and he in turn laid off for Wijnaldum to coolly guide a 20-yard effort into the bottom-left corner.
Along with Robertson, the likes of Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Ovie Ejaria are all on the substitutes' bench, with Klopp likely to make wholesale changes at some stage in the evening. Salah didn't do well at Chelsea, and if he went to another Premier League club, the fans might be disappointed to be signing a Chelsea 'reject'.
Robertson played a teasing ball across the face of goal from the left that Salah should have done better with against an unguarded net.
When is Liverpool vs Hertha BSC?
