CONFIRMED: Liverpool line-up v Valerenga

Liverpool have annoucned their starting line-up for this evening's pre-season friendly against Valerenga in Oslo.

Martin Skrytel, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson and, of course, Luis Suarez all make noticeable omissions in the whole traveling Liverpool squad as all are withdrawn due to injury.

Liverpool have enjoyed a prolific pre-season to date and that is expected to continue in Scandinavia, however, manager Brendan Rodgers has a fine balancing act in order to field a strong team on Saturday, as the Reds are entertained by Glaswegian giants Celtic in their last friendly before Premier League competition kicks off.

First XI: Jones, Spearing, Wisdom, Coates, Flanagan, Henderson, Allen, Alberto, Downing, Aspas, Ibe.

Subs: Mignolet, Enrique, Kelly, Toure, Gerrard, Coutinho, Assaidi, Lucas, Borini, Sterling.
