The Reds kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 4-3 win over Leeds on Saturday evening, and the majority of those involved were given the next day off to recover.
Huddersfield netted an equaliser through an own goal, with the game ending at 1-1 in a useful runout for those yet to play for the senior side this term.
At this point, further details of this ‘secret’ friendly are scarce, with journalists yet to uncover specifics two days on.
It is encouraging to see Shaqiri back from injury, having missed much of pre-season, while their inclusion suggests no decision has been made yet on either Wilson or Brewster.
Karius was called upon, with Caoimhin Kelleher starting in the U23s’ derby.
After the game, Huddersfield B manager Danny Schofield attested to Liverpool’s “intense press,” with the Reds unlikely to have held up despite the scoreline, with fitness and sharpness the priority in these friendlies.
Those included in the draw can be expected to start in the League Cup third-round clash with either Bradford or Lincoln, with Liverpool due to discover their opponent on Tuesday night.
That tie should be played on September 23, three days after the trip to Stamford Bridge.
