Confirmed: Liverpool line-up to play Helsinki

Paisley Gateway

Here is how Liverpool will line up for their match against Helsinki:

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez, Henderson, Milner, Coutinho, Ibe, Lallana, Ings

Liverpool subs: Fulton, Maguire, Kent, Allan, Origi, Chirivella

Liverpool play their penultimate pre-season friendly when they take on Helsinki this afternoon, and for many of their first-team stars it is their final chance to impress before the competitive action kicks off next weekend.

There is another match for the Reds tomorrow (Sunday) against Swindon Town but that game is likely to see a number of younger players staking a claim for a first-team chance next season and beyond.

Before that, Liverpool take on Helsinki as manager Brendan Rodgers looks to bed in all the new players at his disposal.

Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke do not feature today but they will be integral long term if Rodgers gets it right (and the new signings settle quickly) this season could be a very good one for Liverpool and their supporters.

Liverpool have had a relatively easy pre-season to date and this is arguably the toughest game they will play all summer.
