Long-term absentees in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson have all made pre-season comebacks ahead of Saturday's game, and the Reds' final exhibition match ended in a 3-1 success over Osasuna on Monday night.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
