The Reds have just completed as hard a session as you could imagine, training for 90 minutes under intense sunshine at Mong Kok Stadium.

Klopp and his staff worked the players through a series of drills and game scenarios as the fine-tuning for the new season becomes ever more acute.

A large gathering of local fans were in attendance at the open session too, relishing the rare opportunity to see the squad at such close quarters.

We'll have photos and footage later today.

Klopp on pre-season games: "I always want highest intensity. It's a very important session, that's why we played [players for] 45 minutes."
Klopp: "We are really trying to get the biggest, highest, most sunny thing you can win. But we have to work until we get it."
Klopp on #PLAsiaTrophy final: "We know now it's a really nice tournament - fantastic atmosphere. We want to be focused 100 per cent."
Klopp on 2017-18: "Take the recipe you saw last year and involve a few nice things: better defending, more concentration, more clinical."
