Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Co looked extremely relaxed just over 24 hours ahead of kick off.
The players chatted away with the empty stands stretching skywards around them and no doubt there will be an electric atmosphere awaiting them on Wednesday.

Plenty of the squad put their headphones on as they visualised what is to come
‘If Bobby is 100 per cent ready to play then he will maybe play’, teased the manager in his pre-match press-conference.
‘He’s here, he trained. Tomorrow another session and then I have to make a decision, that’s it.’
Liverpool will understand the importance of an away goal so the inclusion of Firmino, a fixture in the side all season, would be a huge boost.
