Liverpool’s line-up against Salzburg has been confirmed as Darwin Nunez starts

Liverpool face Salzburg tonight in their fourth pre-season friendly, and Jurgen Klopp has named a much-changed XI, with minutes expected to be shared.

After another six-day break between games, the Reds are now in Austria to face a Salzburg side who have already started their 2022/23 league campaign with a win.

For Liverpool, the aim is to continue to push the squad towards full match fitness and we are likely to see a large number of players in the starting XI for an hour before changes are made.

Of the 31-man squad traveling to Austria, Alisson, Calvin Ramsay and Kaide Gordon are unavailable for selection tonight.

It opens the door for Adrian to start again behind a back four of Isaac Mabaya, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez and James Milner.

Stefan Bajcetic retains the No.6 role with Naby Keita and Curtis Jones sitting alongside the young Spaniard in midfield.

In attack, Darwin Nunez is flanked by Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho.

The manager also has a host of players to leave the bench throughout, with a number of changes expected to come at half-time or full-time.

Liverpool: Adrian; Mabaya, Konate, Gómez, Milner; Bajcetic, Keita, Jones; Elliott, Carvalho, Nunez

Subs: Hughes, Mrozek, Davies, Van Dijk, Matip, Phillips, Van den Berg, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Henderson, Morton, Salah, Diaz, Firmino
