Liverpool stepped up their pre-season programme with the first of two training sessions on their second day back at Melwood.

Stretches and warm-ups were on the agenda on Tuesday morning as the Reds begin the build-up to 2018-19 and a long season ahead.

Our photographer was at the training ground to take pictures of the workout, which you can see in the gallery below.
