Just 34 days after their final game of a title-winning season, the Reds are back in competitive action as they take on Arsenal in the Community Shield.
The Gunners booked their place in the clash by winning the FA Cup, which means their last game was less than a month ago, and that is likely to be reflected in how both sides approach the tie.
A traditional curtain-raiser, the Community Shield is growingly considered more of a lucrative friendly, and this will be no more so than this year, with Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta expected to ring the changes throughout.
Liverpool have already played twice in pre-season, beating Stuttgart 3-0 and drawing 2-2 with Salzburg, and this may give them an advantage in a game that could see a host of fringe figures looking to impress.
The last time the Reds won the Community Shield was in 2006, but can they make it five trophies in 15 months with a long-awaited victory this time around?
