Jurgen Klopp has named a strong starting lineup as Liverpool end their pre-season tour of the United States against Man United in Michigan tonight.

The Reds take on their long-time rivals at the Michigan Stadium before flying back to Europe on Sunday, after a productive spell across the Atlantic.

After a disappointing collapse against Borussia Dortmund, Klopp’s side sealed a 2-1 victory over Man City, with their second-half display impressive regardless of the low stakes of pre-season.

Next up before their training camp in Evian are United, with Jose Mourinho attempting to pile pressure on his managerial counterpart ahead of kickoff in Ann Arbor.

A host of key names will take to the field for Liverpool’s seventh friendly of the summer, though Kamil Grabara will start in goal following injury to Loris Karius.

Rafa Camacho, Ragnar Klavan, Virgil van Dijk and Alberto Moreno make up Klopp’s back four, shielded by Fabinho.

He will be flanked by Adam Lallana and James Milner in midfield, while Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Dominic Solanke line up in attack.

Xherdan Shaqiri is among Klopp’s substitutes, with the Swiss expected to make his debut following his £13 million from Stoke City.

Along with Karius, both Georginio Wijnaldum and Naby Keita miss out due to minor injuries, while Nathaniel Clyne is absent having left the tour due to the birth of his son.

Liverpool: Grabara; Camacho, Klavan, Van Dijk, Moreno; Fabinho, Lallana, Milner; Salah, Mane, Solanke

Substitutes: Kelleher, Gomez, Phillips, Robertson, Chirivella, Grujic, Woodburn, Jones, Sturridge, Origi, Shaqiri, Markovic, Ojo
