Liverpool are playing their second friendly in as many days with Spain’s Osasuna team in action at Anfield. The Reds managed a 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao yesterday, which placed more emphasis on building the sharpness of their game than on the result itself. So far it has been a quiet transfer window for Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp not yet feeling the need to spend the money. With several key players returning from injury after missing the majority of the last campaign, it feels like they are a new addition themselves. Osasuna’s opponents beat Real Sociedad 3-1 in their previous training match, which must have given them a lot of confidence. Lionel Messi in Paris?

Andrew Robertson suffered an ankle injury against Bilbao, which worried fans just a week before the start of the season. The Scottish skipper limped off the pitch yesterday and is very unlikely to face Norwich. Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara both trained with the first team and are expected to play a role against Osasuna. Another positive news for Reds fans is that key defender Virgil Van Dijk has looked close to his usual best during the 71 minutes he played against Bilbao.
Jon Moncayola was part of the Spanish Olympic team and will therefore join the Osasuna team late. Côté and Iker Benito are currently struggling with injuries and will miss their team’s opening games. Ante Budimir will lead the attack on the Spanish side and his duel with Virgil Van Dijk will be interesting to watch.
