The Reds have been one of the busier teams in the transfer market this summer, and as work continues behind the scenes to put all of that Luis Suarez money to good use, Rodgers will be keen to see just how far his side have come in terms of preparation before the start of the season.

Two years ago, Rodgers embarked on his Liverpool journey after being appointed as manager, with a match at Fenway Park, the stadium of the Boston Red Sox and the English Premier League club's owners, and the Northern Irishman admitted he is quite excited to lead his side at the famous ground again.

"It's great because I remember being sat here a couple of years ago," Rodgers told the media on the eve of the game. "It was the start of a journey that has been incredible for the last couple of years.

"There's a real sense of nostalgia, coming back. It's an iconic stadium. I've obviously been back to Boston since, but coming back here with the team allows us to sit and reflect on the two years that we've had and the progress that has been made.

"The couple of years that we've had have been great, but we're not going to rest on it. We've made great progress but there's still a lot of work for us to do and a lot of progress to be made. While that is the case, then we will continue to work hard as a club and staff to keep us moving forward."

Liverpool fans will be keen to see the likes of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, if fit, and Lazar Markovic have a go in the game, but the spotlight will be firmly on Steven Gerrard after the skipper announced his retirement from international duty for England a couple of days back.

"I'd spent a lot of time talking to Steven on it, because I know how much it means to him to captain his country," Rodgers said of Gerrard's announcement to call time on a stellar international career.

"He has been a wonderful captain. But Liverpool is everything to him and there's certainly no doubt that by missing out on international football, it will make him fresher.

"He'll be ready to be at his optimum level as often as he possibly can. For us at Liverpool, it's great. It brings an end to what has been a great career for England."

There will also be plenty eyes on Roma, as Rudi Garcia's men look for the best preparation possible ahead of another Serie A title challenge, with the cynosure set to be former Chelsea and Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole, who reportedly turned down the chance to remain in the Premier League by signing for Liverpool.

Cole made an appearance for Roma in a friendly against an Indonesia U-23 last week and Garcia was more than pleased with the experienced defender's performance. "I liked the attitude of the new players like Cole and (Salih) Ucan," Garcia said. "They stepped on to the field with confidence."
