Liverpool are going to take on RB Leipzig for the next pre-season friendly. And here’s how the Reds could line up against the German giants.
After completing the Aisa tour, Liverpool will now take on RB Leipzig for the pre-season-friendly fixtures. This will be the Reds’ 3rd game. They lost 4-0 to Man United in their first game. In contrast, they went on to beat fellow EPL Club Crystal Palace 2-0.
Injuries are a concern for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of Thursday’s game.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained a muscular injury in the most recent victory over Crystal Palace. At the same time, Diogo Jota and Alisson Becker are also both out with hamstring and abdominal problems, respectively. The former could return in time for the Community Shield.
Joe Gomez was left out from the 2-0 victory on Friday as a precaution. He has started his training, but Calvin Ramsay, Caoimhin Kelleher, and Kaide Gordon are all coping with their own aches and pains.
Adrian should get another start in goal because Kelleher and Alisson are likely to sit out. And Virgil van Dijk could make a comeback to partner with Ibrahim Konate at the defense.
As the start of the season approaches, Trent Alexander-Arnold might also be taken into consideration for a recall to the starting lineup, with Kostas Tsimikas continuing to man the opposing side.
Along with Harvey Elliott and Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara is a candidate to rejoin the midfield. And through this, a quality trio might enter the final third.
Darwin Nunez might get the start up front as he looks to score his first goal for the Merseyside giants. While Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah appear to be taking up the wide areas.
