Closed Doors Friendly

liverpool continued the preparation for a return to Premier League action on June 21 by facing Championship side Blackburn Rovers in a behind-closed-doors fixture.

Tha game was a test to the chemistry between players and to the attacking build up scenarios

the clash ended with a massive 6-0 win for the Reds

Boss Jurgen Klopp expressed his satisfaction after the game to the liverpoolfc.com reporter and said:

It looked really good, pretty much from the beginning. Yes, you have to get used again to playing against a deep-defending side and stuff like this. Blackburn had a playing build-up from time to time, so we could work on the high press as well
I am really thankful that Blackburn came here and we could do that, so I wish them all the best

and about the atmosphere of an empty Anfield the gaffer answered:

Yes, it’s different, of course. You need to get used to it
I thought before that it would be really awkward, but we have to create our own atmosphere in the games
