Xherdan Shaqiri joined his teammates as Liverpool’s preparations for the start of the season continued at Melwood on Thursday afternoon.

With the Premier League opener against Leeds United fewer than 48 hours away, the Reds’ work was ongoing under the watchful eyes of Jürgen Klopp and his coaching staff.

Shaqiri was back among those taking part in the session as the champions gear up to welcome Marcelo Bielsa’s newly-promoted side to Anfield, with the Swiss having been absent due to a knock sustained during the recent training camp in Austria.

See how the session unfolded in our gallery below.
