Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool squad landed in Hong Kong on Monday for their pre-season tour to take part in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

The Reds will kick off their time in the Far East against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, before taking on either Leicester City or West Brom on Saturday.

Klopp named a 25-man squad for the trip, including new signings Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke, leaving Merseyside for a lengthy flight.

The likes of Mamadou Sakho, Lazar Markovic and Sheyi Ojo were also left out, with the Reds looking to secure deals for them this summer.
