Liverpool have completed their first training session back in the UK after a pre-season tour of Asia, with some key players present in the record-breaking heat.

Most of Liverpool’s post-Mane frontline was present, as Mo Salah, Luis DIaz and Roberto Firmino were all seen taking part under the watchful eye of Jurgen Klopp.

Despite his South American background, Diaz appeared to be wilting slightly in the record-breaking heat, and was seen pouring a bottle of water over his head.

There was good news for academy starlets Isaac Mabaya and Stefan Bajcetic, who were both given chances to train with the first team, suggesting they may be on their way to playing senior football at Anfield.

League Cup hero Caoimhin Kelleher was absent from the session, as were Calvin Ramsey and Kaide Gordon. All three also missed the tour of Asia.

Liverpool will be hoping to pip rivals Manchester City to the Premier League title next season after missing out by a point last season. 

They will face City in the Community Shield on Sunday, July 31 and get their league campaign underway against Fulham the following Saturday.
