LIVERPOOL VS OSASUNA
| Monday, August 9th |
Pre-Season | Anfield
7PM BST/2PM EST
Yesterday’s friendly was a bit of a mixed bag. A lively and exciting first-half performance from most of the expected starting XI quickly turned sour when Andy Robertson went down with a potentially serious injury just before the break. The second half saw the Reds concede and go on to draw 1-1.
Although today’s team will be on the whole weaker, there are still some big time players looking to get their match fitness up. Roberto Firmino and Fabinho will certainly be looking to stake a claim for a starting spot against Norwich, and captain Jordan Henderson should also feature for his first minutes of preseason. Thiago is also due some playing time after missing the last round of friendlies with a minor knock.
Hopefully Liverpool look good and can avoid any additional injuries as they wrap up their preseason and look ahead to Norwich on Saturday for the league opener.
