Jürgen Klopp welcomed a number of Academy hopefuls to Melwood on Monday to bolster the numbers in first-team training in the absence of Liverpool's international contingent.

The senior players who are not representing their countries this week were joined by the likes of Yan Dhanda, Cameron Brannagan and Matty Virtue in today's session, which was captured in full by our photographers.
