The match against Sevilla will be Arne Slott’s first in front of the home crowd at Anfield and is set to kick off at 3pm (BST).

There is still a week to go until the Reds’ Premier League opener at Ipswich on Saturday 17th August at 12.30pm.

Despite a number of players likely still being on international duty, it is perhaps surprising that another friendly has not been planned for Liverpool’s pre-season.

Slott will need to make the most of his time on the training ground to ensure Liverpool don’t make a slow start to the campaign.
