Liverpool's pre-season preparations began at Melwood on Monday morning - and our cameras were granted access-all-areas passes in order to capture exclusive footage of the players and staff back at the training ground.

Naby Keita and Fabinho were among those who reported for duty, as well as a clutch of returning loan players including Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge.

The day consisted of a series of tests for the players, including the energy-sapping lactate testing drills.
