Here's how Liverpool line up for their friendly against Brondby, kick-off at 18:00 GMT.

Liverpool: B. Jones, Kelly, Agger, Ilori, Smith, Lucas, Rossiter, Coutinho, Suso, Borini, Teixeira

Liverpool kick-off their pre-season campaign with a match against Danish side FC Brondby, which represents a chance for vice-captain Daniel Agger to return to his former employers.

Brendan Rodgers’ pre-season plans are likely to see him use a combination of his more experienced players alongside youngsters fighting for a chance in his first team at Anfield.

It’s worth remember that several Liverpool stars have been granted extra leave following the World Cup, although Rickie Lambert pitched up for training earlier than expected.

Therefore, Reds fans are unlikely to see something resembling Rodgers’ first choice side until later in pre-season when everyone is available and fit for selection ahead of the Premier League.

Liverpool still have work to do on the transfer market, with a left-back still needed but a positive result can help the Reds build on the positivity which has been created following the arrival of Lazar Markovic from Benfica.
