Liverpool begin their pre-season scheduled with a friendly against Tranmere tonight.
Just six weeks on from their Champions League triumph over Spurs, the Reds are set to kick off their preparations for the 2019/20 campaign.
Jurgen Klopp and co will be in the USA, Scotland and Switzerland over the coming weeks but they start with a short trip across the Mersey to Tranmere.
Klopp will use the opening matches of their scheduled to give some game-time to his young, up-and-coming players.
He said: “The door is always open to the first team. The thing is you have to go through by yourself – we only open the door, we don’t push you through.
“So, I’m open, I’m very open for exciting football players and if the boys show up, good for them and good for us.”
