Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his players to expect a tough test when they start the new Premier League season with a game against newly-promoted Leeds United on Saturday, September 12.
The Reds played their last pre-season friendly on Saturday against Blackpool and celebrated a 7-2 victory. Jurgen Klopp's side also played against Stuttgart (3-0) and RB Leipzig (2-2) as part of the pre-season friendlies.
"It was as good as possible, I would say," Klopp said when asked how he felt Liverpool's pre-season preparations have been.
"We had a lot of good sessions and we will get the benefit of that during the season.
"We have to make sure we now get ready for the first game against Leeds because that will be a really tough one. Leeds have a specific style of play, man-marking over the whole pitch and makes it proper intense.
"We have to be ready for that but we have a few days. Hopefully all the other boys now stay healthy in the international games, then they come back and we have three days to work together on that.
"It was the best pre-season we could have had because we cannot compare and nobody will give us a different one."
The game against Leeds United will be on Saturday, September 12 at Anfield.
