Liverpool were back at Melwood on Monday morning to kick off preparations for the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final with Southampton - and our photographers snapped the session.

The Reds were in FA Cup action on Sunday afternoon, with the goalless draw against Plymouth Argyle meaning a third-round replay later this month.

For now, though, the focus is firmly on the trip to St Mary's for the opening game of a two-legged contest to decide a place in the Wembley final of the EFL Cup.
