As was announced by the club earlier this month, former Liverpool greats Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman are all expected to play after being named in Klopp's team for the match.

Jordan Henderson will miss the trip as he continues his recovery from a foot injury. 

The match will take place only two days after Jurgen Klopp's side wrapped their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win against Middlesbrough
