Liverpool continue their pre-season schedule with a trip to Ewood Park tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side take on newly-promoted Championship side Blackburn Rovers just a few days before jetting off to the United States ahead of the International Champions Cup.
With the World Cup dominating this summer’s headlines, it’s been a fairly low-key preparation from the Reds up until now, with games against the likes of Chester, Tranmere Rovers and Bury proving good workouts for those who did not travel to Russia with their respective nations.
Jurgen Klopp is still without many of his big names for the short trip to Lancashire, though this can afford some of the players currently available to get a good head start on the rest of the squad. Clearly, a squad as talented as Liverpool’s retains a huge amount of quality even without some of the World Cup stars, so there’s certainly every chance those available now will give their manager a welcome headache,
With that in mind, here’s a look at Liverpool’s ideal situation against Blackburn tonight.
