It was business as usual at Melwood on Wednesday as Liverpool continued preparations for the weekend meeting with Southampton in the absence of Jürgen Klopp.

With the boss attending a hospital appointment, his assistants Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz oversaw today's session.

A number of the Reds' returning internationals featured, while Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana were welcome participants having overcome recent injuries.

Sadio Mane, meanwhile, continued his rehabilitation after a 'slight' recurrence of a hamstring injury while on international duty.
