Confirmed: Liverpool and Crystal Palace line-ups

Liverpool XIs faced Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic before flying out to Hong Kong, where they will face Crystal Palace in the Asia Trophy tomorrow.

One player De Boer didn't start against Liverpool, however, was Ruben Loftus-Cheek - with the on-loan Chelsea midfielder starting the friendly on the bench.

He also named a number of youngsters and fringe players in the squad, as he looks to run the rule over everyone he has at his disposal.

The tournament, which will see Leicester City take on West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday afternoon before Liverpool play Crystal Palace at night, will not feature extra time.

The game kicks-off at 1.30pm United Kingdom time and we have all the action live right here.

Liverpool had an outstanding 16-17 EPL season, finishing in fourth, which means Champions League football for The Reds in this upcoming season.

John Bel Edwards said advance notice of the storm gave officials time to put emergency plans in place before the storm. Carroll said the Triangle area may not see rains from Cindy's aftermath until Friday night or early Saturday.

Daniel Sturridge had Liverpool's first chance in the 13th minute when his shot from Trent Alexander-Arnold's low cross was blocked by Scott Dann.

Jurgen Klopp's side went ahead through Solanke's superb strike before Divock Origi fired home to seal the win in Hong Kong.

Palace's chances were far fewer than their opponents' but Keshi Anderson gave Liverpool a scare when he sent a close-range effort towards goal which Simon Mignolet was forced to save.

The restart precipitated a raft of changes for Liverpool, who had substituted their entire outfield within the first five minutes of the second half.

This was their second victory of pre-season, and while Palace were decidedly less fluent at this stage of the summer, defeating Premier League opposition is certainly encouraging.
