Liverpool name starting XI for first pre-season game

Liverpool travel to Tranmere on Thursday evening for their first pre-season game of the summer.

And Jürgen Klopp has named what looks like a relatively strong starting XI for the clash.

Joe Gomez, Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain, James Milner and Adam Lallana all take their places in the side.

However one man who won’t be making an appearance is new signing Sepp van den Berg, who is ineligible right now with his transfer still to be ratified officially by Fifa.
