Sevilla vs Liverpool : continue their preparations for the new campaign by facing Sevilla in a preseason friendly at Fenway Park in Boston on Sunday.
The Reds’ tour of the U.S. began with a 3-2 defeat to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund at Notre Dame Stadium on Friday. This is another opportunity for Jurgen Klopp to give valuable minutes to some of the notable fringe players in his squad, including Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Harry Wilson and Nathaniel Clyne.
Meanwhile, Sevilla are much-changed after the return of bargain-hunting recruitment specialist Monchi. The sporting director has added 10 new faces this summer, including Luuk de Jong, Joan Jordan, Lucas Ocampos and the excellent Munas Dabbur in attack.
