Henderson returns to captain Reds

    Henderson returns from an injury which ended his season early

    Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is making his first appearance since February tonight.

    He will skipper the side in a friendly against non-league side Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park as manager Jurgen Klopp begins the preseason fixtures.

    Klopp has opted to field two different sides in each half and will have additional substitutes available from the bench, should he require them.

    German goalkeeper Loris Karius is the only player set to start each half.

    First-half XI: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Lucas, Milner, Henderson, Grujic, Wijnaldum, Ojo, Firmino, Sturridge.

    Second-half XI: Karius, Clyne, Gomez, Klavan, Flanagan, Stewart, Chirivella, Woodburn, Markovic, Kent, Solanke.

    Goalkeeper Kamil Grabara and full-back Connor Randall will take their places on the bench and could get some game time if Klopp decides to use them.
