Liverpool's first-team squad made their annual Christmas visit to the city's Alder Hey Children's Hospital on Thursday afternoon.

Before training ahead of the weekend's meeting with Manchester United, Jürgen Klopp and his players made the short journey from Melwood to Alder Hey, a hospital that cares for more than 275,000 children every year.

The Reds, who split into groups in order to meet as many of the children as possible, took gifts and chatted with the patients and their families, while also posing for photographs and taking part in activities.
