Match Preview & Team Lineups: Jurgen Klopp is likely to use as many players as possible during the game just like in the opening friendly games two days ago when Liverpool fielded two different teams in either half. Record signing Muhammad Salah will have to wait for another week for his debut in Liverpool shirt due to visa issues. While Sadio Mane and Danny Ings are ruled out and Emre Can is given extended break. Rest of the big names set to feature include Adam Lallana, Henderson, Mignolet, Coutinho and Firmino etc. There are a few players still doubt including Lovren, Origi and Moreno.
Wigan Athletic were relegated from Championship last year and will be playing in League one this year. They have some decent players in their lineups and should pose more threat than what Tranmare Rovers did in the opening game. Liverpool also played a friendly against Wigan last year during pre-season which they won 2-0 and we can expect another similar result on Friday night.
