Spirits were high at Melwood on Friday afternoon as Liverpool continued to gear up for the weekend encounter with Arsenal - and our photographers were at the training complex to snap the latest session.

The Reds continued preparations for Sunday's showdown with the Gunners, with the mood in the camp high following the clinching of a place in the Champions League group stages with victory over Hoffenheim in midweek.
