Pre-season training begins at Melwood on Monday morning as a number of Liverpool’s players report for duty ahead of the new campaign.

A total of 26 members of Jürgen Klopp’s squad are scheduled to reconvene at the club’s West Derby base as focus is turned to 2018-19.

The players have been split into three groups of nine, nine and eight, with their arrival times staggered throughout the morning.

After eating breakfast together, each group will head to Melwood’s indoor-outdoor performance gym for Functional Movement Screen and Range of Motion tests, before lactate testing takes place on the outdoor pitches.

Following a break of around an hour where they are able to eat and rest, the players will then go to the facility’s rehab gym to complete jumps and specific assessments.
