Liverpool reconvened at Melwood yesterday for pre-season training but only began ball work today.

The 2017/18 Premier League season is so close that you can almost taste the excitement. At the same time, you can sense the anxiety within the Liverpool fanbase as only one major transfer has been completed.

Despite the lack of movement on the transfer front, Jürgen Klopp and his squad have begun preparations for the new season at Melwood and we have pictures from training.

 

During the season, training photos are only of mild significance but considering the fact that it’s been 46 days since Liverpool’s last Premier League game (that’s 1032 hours of painstaking boredom), any glimpse into the ongoings at Melwood are much more exciting than usual.

Liverpool play Tranmere Rovers in six days and although the likes of Emre Can, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah won’t feature, seeing the rest of the squad in action will still be enough to ease our football depression.

Until then, however, I hope these photos will do the trick.
