3 ever-presents and youth step up – Liverpool’s 2022 pre-season in numbers

Liverpool’s run of six pre-season games is done and dusted, with Jurgen Klopp turning to plenty of his squad throughout the summer, while offering a glimpse at the club’s exciting young talent.

The Reds’ summer schedule concluded with a 3-0 defeat against Strasbourg on Sunday evening, following fixtures against Man United, Crystal Palace, RB Leipzig, Salzburg and the Community Shield win over Man City.

In that time, Liverpool have made the journey to Thailand, Bangkok, Germany, Austria and Anfield, with the summer another productive one amid the thousands of miles travelled.

There are only a handful of days until the Premier League season starts at Fulham and the manager will be pleased with the work that has been undertaken by his entire squad.

Here, we take a look at the numbers behind Liverpool’s pre-season and see who amassed the most minutes, goals and assists.
