BANGKOK, Thailand -- Liverpool completed its Asian Tour on a high note with a 3-0 victory over Thailand at the Rajamangala National Stadium on Sunday.

The victory gave the Premier League club a hat-trick of wins in its preseason tour of the region, after 2-0 wins against Indonesia and Melbourne.

Playing in a steady drizzle, Liverpool opened the scoring through Coutinho in the 16th minute.

Three minutes into the second half, the visitors scored again when Coutinho turned provider and set up Iago Apas for the team's second. Skipper Steven Gerrard added the third in the 58th.

Uruguay international Luis Suarez, currently the subject of transfer speculation, played the last half hour of the game and hit the crossbar.

"We see him tonight. He's pretty much a Liverpool player," club manager Brendan Rodgers said. "He's three years left on his contract. We've planned him (being) with us for the future."

Liverpool drew 1-1 against Thailand on its most recent previous visit in 2009.
