Liverpool vs RB Salzburg – LIVE!
Jurgen Klopp’s champions return to friendly action in Austria this afternoon as they face RB Salzburg.
The Reds met the Austrian champions in last season’s Champions League group stages, winning both home and away as they topped Group E ahead of Napoli.
Klopp has named a strong starting XI, while new signing Konstantinos Tsimikas could feature off the bench as the Reds step up their preparations for their first-ever Premier League title defence.
Liverpool: Alisson, Williams, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino

One step closer to real football!
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he won’t make wholesale half-time changes today as he did against Stuttgart in Liverpool’s last friendly.
“We decide that when I see the first half – who looks tired more than he should and stuff like this and then we make the change.
“We have three or four more days to prepare for the Community Shield, so we should make sure that we have there a really strong line-up on the pitch.”
But what does that mean in terms of both players’ rehabilitation from injury? Find out more here.
You’d expect Arsenal to come up against a very similar XI in the Community Shield this Saturday at Wembley Stadium.
