Liverpool take on Hull City on Saturday as we continue our pre-season. With the squad now back in Liverpool following the Far East tour that new signings Henderson, Downing and Doni missed, Dalglish now has to decide whether these players will be part of the game against Hull.

“We will have a look at them and decide what’s best,” Dalglish said. “There is certainly no rush for us to play anyone in these pre-season games.

“Stewart has been training for a fortnight and Jordan only started training on Monday.

“Everyone has trained well this week and the players are looking in good shape. Nowadays they come back looking as fit as they were before the break.

“But some have started back later than others and we have to take that into consideration.

“It’s a pre-season game and we will treat it as such. We need to use these games to give as much benefit to as many players as we can.

“I’m not sure what the ruling will be in terms of the number of subs we can use. But we will certainly use up our full quota and field as many as possible.”

With each passing day, I am getting more and more excited about the start of the Premier League season. Can August 13 come already!
