Liverpool vs Blackpool – LIVE updates

Liverpool are in pre-season friendly action this afternoon, as they take on League One side Blackpool at Anfield.

The Reds face the Tangerines in their final pre-season fixture ahead of the new Premier League season which begins next week.

The game will be played behind closed doors with supporters still unable to attend stadiums due to the Covid pandemic.

Former Liverpool Under-23s boss Neil Critchley will be in the opposition dugout this afternoon, in his first visit to Anfield since taking the job at Blackpool in March.

Jurgen Klopp will be without a number of key players for today’s game, with several away on international duty with their respective clubs.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Joe Gomez, Gini Wijnaldum and Neco Williams are all away from Melwood.

However, there is a welcome boost with Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip and Divock Origi all recovering from injury and returning to training in recent days.

Kicking off at 3pm, follow LIVE updates, all the pre-match build-up and post-match reaction with Theo Squires, Mark Wakefield, Caoimhe O’Neill and Connor Dunn.
