Liverpool arrived in Spain on Monday for a warm weather training camp in preparation for a Champions League final with Tottenham Hotspur.

Jurgen Klopp's side will spend six days in Marbella ahead of their clash with Spurs in Madrid on June 1.

The German manager, who can name a squad of 23 for that night in the Bernabeu, brought 26 players with him to the Andalusian coast.

Among the 23 was a certain Ben Woodburn.

Woodburn, who became Liverpool's youngest-ever goalscorer when he found the net in a League Cup game at the age of 16, was named on the bench for the 4-0 win over Barcelona in the club's last Champions League outing.

He returned to Merseyside in December following a disastrous loan at Sheffield United, in which he barely featured.

Three players who travelled to Marbella won't be named in the squad for the final and it'll be interesting to see if Woodburn can use the remaining 11 days to make an impression on Klopp.

But if Roberto Firmino is fit, which he wasn't when Barcelona visited Anfield earlier this month, then it seems unlikely that the young Wales international will be included.
