Billy Koumetio was showing off a fresh new look in training on Wednesday ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

The Liverpool defender shaved his head, changing the spiked up hair he had previously been sporting during pre-season.

Liverpool’s players appear competitive and in good spirits as preparations for the Chelsea game begin to heat up.

Many of Liverpool’s regulars including Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Xherdan Shaqiri, Georginio Wijnaldum and Joe Gomez were spotted alongside manager Jurgen Klopp showcasing their foot volleyball skills.

The PFA Young Player of the Year Trent Alexander-Arnold was also seen at Melwood alongside club-captain Jordan Henderson, and the 21-year-old full-back took the opportunity to make a witty remark in regards to his teammate Andy Robertson, whose book: Now You’re Gonna Beleive Us, is scheduled to be released tomorrow.

 

Alexander-Arnold posted a picture on Instagram of himself and a bemused looking Henderson with the caption: ‘Someone just told Hendo about Robbo’s book’.

Liverpool head into Sunday’s clash at Stamford Bridge following an opening day 4-3 victory against Leeds United.

The Premier League champions were indebted to the individual brilliance of Mohamed Salah who scored an emphatic hat-trick to get Jurgen Klopp and his team’s title defence off to a winning start.
