Liverpool confirm squad as they head out on 2018 US tour

Liverpool are about to fly out to the US Tour and have named the travelling squad.

The club will arrive early Saturday US time and then get ready for their game against Borussia Dortmund later on Sunday.

Danny Ings does not travel due to 'blisters and a minor ankle injury'.  It is no secret he is looking for another club for the upcoming season which may play a part in this decision.

Ryan Kent is also excluded from the squad - he's expected to join up with Steven Gerrard's Rangers on a season long loan - following what is becoming a well trodden path now that the former LFC captain has moved to Glasgow.

Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Marko Grujic all returned to training Friday and are included - as is Lazar Markovic who grabbed the opening goal in last night's friendly against Blackburn.

LFC's 29 Man US Tour Squad: Karius, Clyne, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Mane, Salah, Gomez, Sturridge, Grujic, Klavan, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri, Robertson, Origi, Solanke, Matip, Phillips, Jones, Markovic, Ojo, Woodburn, Kelleher, Camacho, Chirivella, Grabara.

Liverpool's eight day trip of three fixtures also involves a Wednesday game against Man City before taking on Man Utd at the end of the week.

Brazilian duo Alisson and Firmino are expected to join up with the team after the 3 tour games are completed, whilst the likes of Lovren, Henderson and Alexander-Arnold should return one week before the season kicks off.

The start of the Premier League season is now just 3 weeks away.

  1. We can’t afford any more slip-ups if we want to catch other top contenders..if there is a case we progress slightly behind again..
