Liverpool are in Germany for their third friendly match against RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena on Thursday before embarking on a week-long training camp in Austria. At this stage of the summer schedule, manager Jürgen Klopp's focus is on improving the fitness of his players.

However, with Liverpool now more than two weeks into their preparations for the new season, there is a chance we could start to see line-ups closer to what we can expect against Fulham on August 6. A selection of Klopp's senior players were given 45 minutes against Crystal Palace last week, and there's a chance some could be in line for at least 60.

Possible line-ups

Darwin Nunez has lined up alongside Mohamed Salah in both of the friendlies he's featured in so far this summer, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Luis Diaz now thrown in with them. Many would argue that those three are likely to be the first-choice trio next season, so it would make sense if Klopp wants them to start developing an understanding up front. 

Realistically, the majority of that team is unlikely to play longer than 60 minutes, and by the end of the game, Liverpool will probably have a completely different lineup on the pitch. The second half could see Harvey Davies get more minutes in goal, after his first senior outing against Palace.

Injuries may mean Tyler Morton is given another opportunity to impress in midfield, with Klopp keen to develop him as a No. 8 rather than a holding midfielder. Here are the possible line-ups:
