Liverpool have concluded their eight-game run of pre-season friendlies, with a handful of fringe players catching the eye and producing the numbers ahead of 2021/22.

The Reds finished their warmup schedule with a 3-1 victory over Osasuna in front of a busy Anfield, following clashes with Wacker Innsbruck, Stuttgart, Mainz, Hertha Berlin, Bologna (twice) and Athletic Club.

With a trip to Norwich to come on August 14, Jurgen Klopp can consider it to have been a hugely productive summer, particularly as a number of squad figures have stepped up and players have returned from long-term injuries.

So who were the standout performers for the Reds throughout their friendlies?

Here, we take a look at the numbers behind Liverpool’s pre-season, including appearances, goals and assists.
