Notably, Curtis Jones played after sustaining an injury against Osasuna in pre-season and Kaide Gordon scored, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds ran out 4-1 winners in the clash with Villa – Divock Origi and Neco Williams found themselves on the score-sheet, alongside Jones and Gordon.

Liverpool arranging a friendly match alongside Premier League fixtures isn’t that unusual, with Chelsea opting to do something similar recently.

The run-out against Villa will have given the likes of Henderson and Thiago a chance to regain some of their fitness ahead of forthcoming competitive matches.
