Tranmere Rovers vs Liverpool Match Preview
Liverpool pay their annual visit to Prenton Park, this time as the new European champions, at the start of a typically busy pre-season campaign.
Manager Jurgen Klopp always likes to get his squad up and at it early with a couple of games against domestic opposition and this summer, as well as their neighbours from the Wirral, Liverpool are visiting Bradford City on Sunday.
Then comes a series of tests against much stronger sides from around Europe, namely Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Sporting Lisbon, Napoli and Lyon, with the Reds visiting the United States, Edinburgh and Geneva before they face Manchester City in the FA Community Shield and kick off the new Premier League season at home to Norwich.
Among the Liverpool players who could be in action at Tranmere are goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Fabinho, Joel Matip and possibly Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi.
Tranmere secured back-to-back promotions last term when they made a second consecutive successful visit to Wembley for a play-off final and they will participate in League One this season for the first time in six years.
After winning on their last three pre-season visits to Birkenhead, Liverpool will expect to do so again – but with Tranmere clearly on the up, it may not be easy in a match where the performance will be more important than the result.
