One of this Summer’s signings, Emmanuel Mendy, is set to make his first appearance in a Red shirt against Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The 18-year-old, who was born in Senegal was signed from Spanish minnows Murcia Deportivo.

Gary Ablett’s reserve squad are on a two game tour of Scotland and the match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle was arranged for Barry Wilson’s testimonial. The game kicks-off at 7.45pm BST at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. The reserves also play Hamilton Academical on Wednesday night.

Ablett is looking forward to the fixtures and believes they will be a good test for his young team.

“It is always good to take the lads away for a few days in the pre-season and we are looking forward to the games,” Ablett told the official site.

“They will be two difficult encounters against SPL opposition but I’m told they are expecting a full house tonight and on Wednesday. Both Inverness and Hamilton have started the season in good form so it will be a real test for us.

“Mendy will play some part in the game and we have the likes of Pacheco, Spearing and Stephen Darby who will also feature.”

Ablett has also been impressed with youngster Michael Scott in this preseason.

“Michael has done very well,” said Ablett. “He has really good potential at right back and like Steven Irwin and Nathan Eccleston we are hoping to see the young lads continue to progress.”

The Liverpool squad in full:

Dean Bouzanis, Martin Hansen, Stephen Darby, Emmanuel Mendy, Michael Scott, Steven Irwin, Mikel San Jose, Ronald Huth, Daniel Ayala, Vincent Weijl, Jordy Brouwer, Craig Lindfield, Daniel Pacheco, Gerardo Bruna, Ryan Crowther, Nathan Eccleston, Martin Kelly, Ryan Flynn.
