Liverpool embark on second consecutive US tour with 28-man squad

Liverpool head off to the United States on their second consecutive tour of the former colonies this week. The Reds have won two of two preseason matches this summer as they gear up for what will be more competitive preseason fixtures on their 2019 United States tour.

The Reds will play three friendly matches in the space of six days in the US.

Their first will be played at Notre Dame Stadium in Indiana against Borussia Dortmund on the 19th of July. The Reds will be in action two days later against Sevilla in Boston at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.

Liverpool will wrap up their preseason on the 24th of July against Sporting Lisbon in New York City at Yankee Stadium.

The summer is going fast and Liverpool are quickly approaching the FA Community Shield match against last season’s Premier League winner Manchester City on the 4th of August.

Liverpool depart for the US today (Tuesday, the 16th of July) and will train in Indiana on the campus of Notre Dame in the build-up to their first match against manager Jurgen Klopp’s former team.

Klopp will have a 28-man squad at his disposal.

Liverpool travelling squad:

Clyne, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Gomez, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Mignolet, Brewster, Robertson, Origi, Matip, Kent, Lewis, Phillips, Jones, Hoever, Ojrzynski, Duncan, Woodburn, Wilson, Larouci, Alexander-Arnold, Van den Berg, Atherton.

The reigning Champions League winners will return to the United Kingdom for a friendly against Napoli on the 28th of July. Klopp and company will then jet off to Geneva to play Lyon on the 31st of July to finish up their preseason campaign.

The likes of Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah are expected to re-join the club once they return to Melwood from the US.

Due to Senegal’s and Sadio Mane’s exploits at the Africa Cup of Nations, the forward is expected to miss the beginning of the Premier League season.
