Liverpool are en route to Kiev for the Champions League final after jetting off from John Lennon Airport on Thursday afternoon.

Jürgen Klopp and his players convened at Melwood this morning to train and have lunch together.

They then flew out of Merseyside a little over 48 hours before their meeting with Real Madrid at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium - and our photographers are on board the team flight with them.

Have a look at a selection of snaps taken as the Reds left the training ground and shortly before their departure to Ukraine below.
