Liverpool kept up their fitness with another friendly during the international break, beating Bradford City 5-0 on Sunday.
The last international break in September saw Jurgen Klopp host David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town at Melwood, while this fortnight saw another Yorkshire side head to Merseyside to provide the opposition.
With 17 first-team squad players back at Melwood during the international break, some through injury, Klopp was understandably keen to have a match scheduled to maintain fitness.
The match saw Danny Ings continue his goalscoring form, with two goals in the friendly following on from his hat-trick in his last outing for the under-23s.
It’s reported also that the squad took part in a double training session on Saturday.
“We win the fitness, we win everything,” really is the motto at Melwood.
Liverpool XI: Karius, Milner, Matip, Lucas, Moreno, Stewart, Can, Chirivella, Woodburn, Brewster, Ings.
Sub used: Dhanda
