Match Preview

Liverpool boss Klopp has already announced that Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota will not be involved in any capacity this weekend, while Kostas Tsimikas, Caoimhin Kelleher, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calvin Ramsay have also been nursing injuries in pre-season.

Third-choice goalkeeper Adrian will likely be required for the Community Shield, so Klopp may be forced to field 20-year-old academy product Liam Hughes in between the sticks on Sunday.

The likes of Curtis Jones, James Milner, Joe Gomez and Fabio Carvalho ought to be more heavily involved in Sunday's game than Saturday's, and there may also be a start for 19-year-old Tyler Morton. Fans may also catch a glimpse of Jay Spearing in action following his appointment to the club's Under-23s as a player-coach.

Meanwhile, Strasbourg boss Stephan should stick with the 5-2-1-2 setup which served his side so well last term, and full-back acquisitions have been in abundance with Colin Dagba, Ronael Pierre-Gabriel and Thomas Delaine all arriving.

Star striker Ludovic Ajorque - who struck 12 goals and set up eight more in Ligue 1 last term - is being linked with a move to Newcastle United, but the 6ft 5in target man should still form a partnership with either Habib Diallo or the veteran Kevin Gameiro here.

With left-back Anthony Caci joining Bundesliga side Mainz 05 on loan for the season, Delaine should occupy one of the flanks at Anfield.
