Liverpool have announced their first pre-season friendly to be held at Anfield in four years.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will take on Torino on 7th August in their final game before their Premier League season kicks off against West Ham.

Serie A side Torino will visit Anfield for the first ever time, in a game where Liverpool will be able to show off new signings Fabinho and Naby Keita to the home crowd.

Torino came 9th in Serie A last season and are managed by former Watford boss Walter Mazzarri.

The last time Liverpool hosted a pre-season friendly, they beat Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund side 4-0 in 2014.

Their pre-season schedule also features big games against Dortmund and Premier League rivals Manchester City and Manchester United as part of the International Champions Cup, as well as a clash with another Serie A side, Napoli.
