Origi, Shaqiri and Lovren return to LFC pre-season training this week

The Reds returned to full pre-season training on Saturday morning, with a scarily sparse squad taking to the training squad at Melwood.

All of the big boys, along with some of the more important squad players were pretty much absent due to involvement with their international sides but Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri returned to training today.

Tomorrow will also see the return of Dejan Lovren, meaning the squad will start to take on the look of a more experienced and filled out one.

Despite that, though, we're not likely to see the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson until later next week, whilst the likes of Alisson, Bobby and Mo won't be returning for another few weeks.

Considering the season starts with the Community shield on 5th August, before the Premier League itself begins 4 days later, we're going to be cutting it quite fine, with regards to having a more fleshed-out squad of players with a full pre-season behind them.
