Although Liverpool just missed out on the Champions League and the Premier League last season, Jurgen Klopp’s side still managed to secure glory in the FA Cup and the EFL Cup.
In 2022/23, the Reds will be determined to challenge for the biggest prizes again and have already strengthened their squad, easing the loss of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.
It is an eventful preseason schedule for Liverpool, which included games against Manchester United and Crystal Palace in Thailand and Singapore, respectively, before they faced RB Leipzig in Germany. Then it is on to Austria for a clash against Salzburg before a home game against Strasbourg just one day after an earlier-than-usual Community Shield clash with Manchester City.
Here is how Liverpool’s preseason is shaping up and who is in their squad.

Liverpool preseason results 2022
Jurgen Klopp’s first meeting with Erik ten Hag as Manchester United boss ended in disappointment in Thailand. Jadon Sancho scored the first goal of the Ten Hag era, before two quickfire goals from Fred and Martial made it 3-0 by halftime.
Youngster Facundo Pellistri, who was introduced after the break in place of Sancho, scored the fourth in an impressive showing for the Red Devils, but Klopp did make wholesale changes to his team throughout.
1st Half: Alisson — Mabaya, Phillips, Gomez, Chambers — Henderson, Morton, Elliott, — Carvalho, Firmino, Diaz.
30th min.: Alisson (Adrian 46′) — Frauendorf, Matip, R. Williams, Tsimikas — Bajcetic, Clarkson, Milner — Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Clark.
60th min.: Adrian — Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson — Fabinho, Thiago, Keita — Salah, Hill, Nunez
Liverpool fared better in Singapore, beating Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace thanks to a first-half goal from captain Jordan Henderson and one from Mohamed Salah moments after the break. Klopp changed his team at the interval again, with Darwin Nunez given another 45 minutes.
1st Half: Adrian — Milner, Matip, Konate, Tsimikas — Elliott, Henderson, Jones — Oxlade-Chamberlain, Firmino, Diaz.
2nd Half: Davies — Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Van den Berg, Robertson — Keita, Fabinho, Thiago — Carvalho, Nunez, Salah.
Darwin Nunez finally left his mark on the preseason, scoring four second-half goals in a 5-0 rout of one of Germany’s top clubs. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring early in the first half as Liverpool took another step forward in their preseason preparations with just one week remaining until the first of many showdowns against Man City.
