“Darwin and Fabio will play for the first time” – Watch Liverpool boss jurgen Klopp reveals early Manchester United team news
Liverpool has made fresh summer hires. Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho will both play in Liverpool’s opening preseason game against Man United on Tuesday, according to Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds and Red Devils will square off at Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium at 2 p.m. BST.
In an interview with Liverpool’s official website, manager Jurgen Klopp revealed some information about the players who would participate, with two of the team’s three summer arrivals expected to play a role.
Fabio Carvalho appears to be in line to start the game, while Darwin Nunez will also play despite only completing preseason training on Sunday.
“The international boys only started back with us on Monday but, as you can imagine, they have come back in outstanding shape, which is not a surprise, so that means they will get some time tonight,” Klopp revealed.
“We will make plenty of changes too, of course, throughout the game. We will need to.
“It means Darwin will be in the squad and Fabio will play for us for the first time and I’m sure our supporters will be pleased about that.”
The only player who won’t be involved is Diogo Jota, who is still recovering from an injury sustained while on international duty with Portugal at the end of last season.
“The plan for United is to use all of our players, except a couple maybe. We will see, but we know one of them is Diogo because of a little issue he has from earlier in the summer,” he continued.
“It’s nothing serious but we decided not to take the risk with him for this game, especially as it’s only our first game of the pre-season.
“Pretty much all of the rest of the boys will all get some minutes. We have brought a big squad here, some young boys and the more senior guys, and we give them all some time.”
