Liverpool trio set for weekend debuts

New Liverpool signings Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Alexander Doni could all make their first appearances for the Reds this weekend. Boss Kenny Dalglish has revealed they are in contention for Saturday's pre-season friendly against Hull City.

"We will have a look at them and decide what's best," the Dalglish told the club's official website. "There is certainly no rush for us to play anyone in these pre-season games.

"Stewart has been training for a fortnight and Jordan only started training on Monday.

"Everyone has trained well this week and the players are looking in good shape. Nowadays they come back looking as fit as they were before the break.

"But some have started back later than others and we have to take that into consideration.

"It's a pre-season game and we will treat it as such. We need to use these games to give as much benefit to as many players as we can."
