Liverpool take on the Thai All Stars as the club’s pre-season schedule intensifies ahead of the new Premier League season.
Results and performances are only part of what manager Brendan Rodgers will be looking for, with a heavier focus on the players improving their general fitness levels.
It’s a first chance for Liverpool fans to judge the mentality of certain players, as well as taking a look at some youngsters and fringe players, who will be keen to get a chance in the senior side over the next ten months.
Rodgers will be watching this game very closely to judge who is ahead in terms of fitness and who is up for the challenge of trying to impress over the course of pre-season.
It may also highlight one or two areas for the boss, which he still needs to work on in terms of improving his options in the transfer market.
A winning mentality is important for Liverpool moving forward, even if it starts with a lower profile friendly.
