Liverpool are now on their summer preseason tour, with their first match scheduled for Saturday against an Indonesia XI. Two more games will follow, against Melbourne Victory and Thailand, as the Reds prepare their players for the 2013-14 Premier League season ahead.
Some of the squad will be merely preparing in the knowledge they'll be part of the furniture in the regular XI, assuming good performances of course, including Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger and Philippe Coutinho.
For others, however, preseason might be a final throw of the dice to prove to manager Brendan Rodgers that they have what it takes to command a regular place in the team for Liverpool, or indeed even be at the club at all.
Here are six players who are, for one reason or another, facing a make-or-break summer at Liverpool.
