Liverpool preseason 2022: Squad list, tour schedule, results, fixtures


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.

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.
