class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With the majority of their first team not in action, Al Hain-Cole is not expecting Klopp's men to find life easy against Arrasate's side at Anfield
Liverpool will be hoping to round off their pre-season preparations with a win when they welcome Osasuna to Anfield on Monday.
The Reds have won one, drawn one, and lost one of their three official friendly matches this summer, playing out a 1-1 draw with Athletic Club on Sunday.
Liverpool vs Osasuna latest odds
With their Premier League season kicking off against Norwich on Saturday, Liverpool are available at 2/5 (1.40) with bet365 to sign off on a high by coming out on top here.
Jagoba Arrasate’s Osasuna side have won all four of their pre-season matches so far but are 11/2 (6.50) outsiders to pull off a victory on Merseyside, or 16/5 (4.20) to hold the hosts to a second stalemate in the space of 24 hours.

Liverpool vs Osasuna team news
None of the players who took part against Athletic are expected to play, with Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara set to be offered their first action of the summer in a line-up missing the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk.
Cote, Iker Benito, Rober Ibanez and Aridane Hernandez are all absent due to injury for the guests, while Jon Moncayola is yet to return to training after collecting a silver medal for Spain at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Liverpool vs Osasuna preview
With many of the squad coming back to training at different times after taking part in Euro 2020 and the Copa America this summer, these two matches on successive days at Anfield will allow Jurgen Klopp to ease players back into action and assess his options.
While the likes of new signing Ibrahima Konate will be keen to impress ahead of the new season in this clash, it is probably fair to say that most of the players likely to start against Norwich were included in Sunday’s line-up.
In contrast, Los Rojillos will come into this game with their strongest possible line-up as they look to fine tune ahead of their La Liga opener against Espanyol on Saturday.
Liverpool vs Osasuna tips & predictions
Having performed well so far this summer and beaten Real Sociedad by an impressive 3-1 scoreline last time out, Osasuna therefore look well worth 13/8 (2.63) odds to at least avoid defeat against an experimental Liverpool side.
