‘Jürgen Klopp’s men will also come up against French side Strasbourg at Anfield on Sunday July 31, kick-off 7.30pm’.

It had been believed that the Reds would be playing against both Leipzig and Salzburg during the summer, although this could still be confirmed, it looks like it is just the Germans that we will face.

These latest games join friendlies against Manchester United and Crystal Palace in Thailand and Singapore respectively, as well as the Community Shield game against Manchester City in the King Power Stadium.

With the Premier League campaign starting early due to the Qatar World Cup in the winter, Jurgen Klopp has less time than usual to prepare his players for the intense schedule.
