Liverpool's preseason has followed a similar pattern, with new signings Sadio Mane, Marko Grujic and Joel Matip impressing, Danny Ings scoring goals, and youngsters delivering the goods as well. As a result, Liverpool are enjoying an unbeaten preseason run, with three victories on the trot. They will be looking to register their fourth straight win, when they play Huddersfield Town at John Smith's Stadium on Wednesday.
Though Liverpool have not met top-quality opposition yet, manager Jurgen Klopp should be pleased, not only with the team's result, but also with their style of play. The German has tried to give all the players an equal chance to impress, and some academy stars like Ben Woodburn have grabbed the opportunity, scoring two goals already.
The 16-year old will be eager to impress once again, as Liverpool do not have their full squad back, with the Euro 2016 players yet to return, giving Woodburn another chance to sparkle.
Such absentees have also given Klopp good time to test the fitness of some players like Danny Ings, who was out for the majority of last season, and he has been bright so far. Klopp might have been criticised for his tough training sessions, but it is proving to be fruitful as they have been playing these friendlies in a high-tempo, with ease.
Matip, who suffered a slight ankle injury against Wigan Athletic, might not be risked, hence, Andre Wisdom is expected to replace him at centre-back. There is huge anticipation at John Smith's stadium, with the match already sold out, and Huddersfield fans will hope to see their team stun Liverpool.
Like the Reds, Huddersfield have been impressive in their friendlies, registering four victories. They have scored nine goals and only conceded one, but this Liverpool fixture will prove to be their toughest test ahead of their Championship campaign.
Manager David Wagner, a good friend of Klopp, is taking this match seriously and has trained his players rigorously to be able to battle it out against Liverpool.
"We have to make sure it's a good game, it's an important match but only one step in our pre-season. This is why we are training twice today and again tomorrow morning, so everybody will be able to perform in front of our home supporters. It's important to feel the crowd, this is good pre-preparation and what pre-season is for," Wagner told reporters.
