The Reds travel to Fulham where they’ll be looking to make the perfect start.
Now they’ll be hungry to dislodge City and claim a second Premier League title.
Liverpool have enjoyed a productive pre-season and beat Pep Guardiola’s side 3-1 to claim the Community Shield last weekend before a young team lost 3-0 to Starsbourg the following day.
The only concer that fans will have heading into the trip to Craven Cottage is that there are several injury problems in the squad at this formative stage of the season.
We take a look at each player who has been sidelined and when they might be back in action for the Reds.
1. Alisson Becker

3. Ibrahima Konate
The centre-back limped off in the 57th minute against Strasbroug after twice receiving treatment. Klopp revealed Konate’s issue wasn’t too concerning. There is a chance the Frenchman may not be risked against Fulham with a look to the longer term.
