Mixed emotions at end of last season. Playing final friendly on Wednesday. No major new signings made. Clyne and Mane set to miss. Shaqiri and Keita could return. Alisson, Salah and Firmino lacking fitness, but also likely to feature.
Liverpool set to finish pre-season preparations with game vs. Lyon on Wednesday night.
After missing out on domestic title to extend wait for Premier League trophy to 30 years Reds won Champions League and at the end of what was the team’s best season in modern history they at least lifted silverware.
Coach Klopp hasn’t made any major new signings and not expected to do so, with Liverpool going into the new season with what they have.
Mane will miss match after busy summer with Senegal, while Alisson, Salah and Firmino back in training, but also coming after extended holidays and not 100% fit. All 3 of them involved in Wednesday friendly though.
Shaqiri and Keita likely to be passed fit after recent injuries, but Clyne set for months of absence due to ACL.
Won 4 of last 6 matches between sides, but last season earned single point from 2 league meetings.
"We’ll see who is really fit. We’ll make a squad for the game, not for the season."
