Next Up: Atletico Madrid (h)

The Reds return from their round-the-world tour which has seen them play friendlies in central Europe, South East Asia, Spain and Norway.

Ateltico Madrid, Fernando Torres’ old club, come to Anfield for the final friendly before the 2009/10 Premier League campaign gets underway a week later.

It will be Rafa Benitez’s last chance to test out his players before the big games come along and imminent signing Alberto Aquilani could feature if he arrives on Merseyside and signs in time.

There’s injuries keeping Martin Skrtel, Nabil El Zahr and Fabio Aurelio out of action, but new £17.5million right-back Glen Johnson will play in front of the Kop in a Liverpool shirt for the first time.
