Liverpool's first-team stars were back out on the pitches at Melwood on Thursday for day two of pre-season training ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

After undergoing a series of medical tests yesterday, the players returned to using the ball this afternoon as they were put through their paces by manager Jürgen Klopp.

The Reds are currently warming up for their first friendly fixture of the summer - a meeting with Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park next Wednesday.

See how preparations for that game are coming along with our gallery from training below.
