The Reds landed in the UAE on Saturday following their 2-1 win over Everton in the third round of the FA Cup the previous night, and will be taking part in warm weather training during their stay in preparation for their highly-anticipated clash with Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday, January 14.
Though keeping a low profile, the players, looking relaxed following a successful holiday period, were happy to pause for photos with some of their large army of followers in the Emirates.
Meanwhile Manchester United are expected to be in Dubai from Monday to Friday and will take part in training camp behind closed doors.
Wow Manchester United and Liverpool are both in Dubai this week! ?
