The Reds can seal their place in the next round of the competition with victory over the French side, and will be full of confidence after Saturday’s 4-1 victory at Manchester City.

After Jurgen Klopp and Dejan Lovren greeted the media, the players were put through their paces on a chilly afternoon on Merseyside.

Philippe Coutinho was absent, nursing a minor hamstring problem picked up at City, as was Martin Skrtel who is suffering from illness and rated as doubtful to face Bordeaux on Thursday.

Liverpool will also be without Mamadou Sakho, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Joe Gomez and Danny Ings.

Daniel Sturridge is getting “closer” to his return from injury, according to Klopp.

Liverpool v Bordeaux gets underway at 20:05 on Thursday, 25th November. Keep an eye on This Is Anfield for more build-up, team news and live coverage. Follow @thisisanfield on Twitter:
