Those Liverpool players who didn’t start against West Ham on Sunday took part in an 11 vs. 11 training match at Melwood on Wednesday.
Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge enjoyed lively cameos against the Hammers, with Sturridge scoring within seconds of his arrival, and they were in the same lineup as Jurgen Klopp builds up the fitness of his squad ahead of the season.
Captain Jordan Henderson also lined up for the ‘home’ side – who played against a team made up of fringe players who could yet leave the club before the European transfer window closes, plus several youngsters from the Reds’ Under-23s.
Conor Masterson, Adam Lewis, Corey Whelan, George Johnston, Matty Virtue, Curtis Jones and Isaac Christie-Davies all played for the ‘away’ side – they will be in action for the U23s’ opening home game of the season against Tottenham at Anfield on Friday night.
