Liverpool will be well aware of just how important pre-season can be. If they get up to scratch from the off, shaking off the cobwebs from last term’s Champions League final disappointment in the process, then starting the Premier League season with a bang is more than likely. The Reds also have a chance to earn small bragging rites before the campaign even gets underway.
Their clash against Manchester United on Tuesday 12th July represents a pre-season fixture with a little more spice than usual and the chance to claim some early psychological dominance over their rivals. For Jurgen Klopp’s side, that will mean defeating Erik ten Hag’s version of the Red Devils at the first time of asking.
Liverpool are in action a total of five times in pre-season – not including their Community Shield battle against Manchester City. Here’s how you can watch every game.
