The Reds, who claimed two trophies last season while missing out on a couple more, headed to Asia ahead of the next campaign

Liverpool took in 63 games during the 2021-22 campaign, gracing every fixture available to them, and will want to come back into contention for more major honours at home and abroad when another season gets underway.

The Reds are now holders of FA Cup and Carabao Cup crowns, but were pipped to the post by Manchester City in the Premier League title race and Real Madrid in the Champions League final as Jurgen Klopp’s side fell narrowly short in a historic quadruple bid.

Confidence is high that more of the same can be delivered next term, with the potential there for further transfer business to be completed, and GOAL is on hand to bring you all you need to know about Liverpool’s on-field plans for the summer of 2022.

Liverpool reported back for training on July 4, before then heading to Thailand to kick off their pre-season fixtures.

A meeting with old adversaries Manchester United was taken in at the Bangkok Century Cup, in a contest that was billed as ‘The Match’, but the Reds suffered a 4-0 defeat.

From there, Klopp’s men headed to Singapore for a Standard Chartered Cup clash with Premier League rivals Crystal Palace, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah, before then taking in a meeting with RB Leipzig in Germany, which they won 5-0, courtesy of another Salah strike and four goals from new signing Darwin Nunez.

Red Bull Salzburg got a 1-0 victory over the Reds on July 27 before a curtain-raising Community Shield clash with Manchester City on July 30.

Jurgen Klopp's team secured the first piece of silverware in that clash at the King Power Stadium in Leicester.

Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring in the first half before Julian Alvarez levelled for City after 70 minutes.

Mohamed Salah restored the Reds' lead with a penalty before Darwin Nunez put the result beyond doubt in stoppage time.

The Reds will return to home soil a day later to face French side Strasbourg at Anfield, who cruised to a 3-0 win against a weakened Liverpool squad.

Liverpool 2022-23 pre-season squad

Liverpool have had an eventful summer till now with a few prominent arrivals and departures. Sadio Mane left for a new challenge with Bayern Munich, Takumi Minamino was sold to Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, while 2019 UEFA Champions League hero Divock Origi joined Serie A champions AC Milan.

However, they have reinforced their squad with quality additions like Nunez, Fabio Carvalho, and Calvin Ramsay. Liverpool paid Benfica £64 million ($79m) upfront to sign Nunez, and could pay up to another £21m ($26m) in add-ons.  He has signed a six-year contract that will keep him at Liverpool until 2028. Reports suggest that Nunez will earn around £5m ($6.1m) per year in salary, similar to Diaz and Jota rather than the top earners such as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Meanwhile, Carvalho has cost the Reds £8 million ($10m), and as Jurgen Klopp suggests boasts the ability to “bring a stadium to its feet”. Their talisman Salah has also renewed for three more years putting an end to all the uncertainties regarding his future.

You can see Liverpool's 37-man pre-season squad below.
