Liverpool v RB Leipzig live stream: Reds head to Germany for pre-season clash amid potential injury crisis for Jurgen Klopp – UK kick-off time, News the team and how to follow

Liverpool’s pre-season preparations are about to kick up a notch as they take on Bundesliga big guns RB Leipzig this week.

The German side finished fourth last season and reached the Europa League semi-finals which should pose a serious challenge for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Jordan Henderson scored in a 2-0 routine for Liverpool against Crystal Palace last week

So far the Reds have been beaten by Manchester United 4-0 and have beaten a Crystal Palace side missing several top players.

Of course, pre-season is all about developing fitness and performance – results don’t really matter.

Still, you would think that in this game we will see more of Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk.

The Reds start their season at the end of this month against Manchester City in the Community Shield, so Klopp is running out of games to get his players fit.

Therefore, it should be a good practice against an aggressive team that has one of Europe’s best players from last year in Christopher Nkunku.

This pre-season friendly match will take place on Thursday 21 July.

Kick-off at the Red Bull Arena in Germany will take place at 6.15pm UK time.

Liverpool v RB Leipzig: Team News

The Reds have already struggled with injury problems in pre-season and they could be without a few first-team players for this game.

Diogo Jota picked up a hamstring injury during the international break in June which means he’s not certain to make the Community Shield.

Alisson was also absent in the last game due to an abdominal injury which prevented him from training.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain started against Palace but came to a halt towards the end of the first half as his injury problems persist.

New man Calvin Ramsay hasn’t traveled to Asia with the rest of the squad but could make his debut against Leipzig.

Liverpool v RB Leipzig: What was said?

Jurgen Klopp on his new striker Darwin Nunez: “I’m not worried at all.

“The General Judgment [on Nunez] is absolutely zero [to us]. It will be like that and we all know it.

“It’s kind of a game or joke for some people to spot certain situations where a player is not doing well. It’s just a game of [fans of] other clubs, which is normal. Our fans probably do [the same] with signatures from Manchester United. We cannot take this seriously.

“We should be the first to remove the fees we paid from our reflection. It does not matter.

“It’s like that with the forwards. He missed a chance and then there are nervous people who are like ‘oh my god, he missed a chance’. I can promise you it won’t be the last.
