Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is looking forward to making his first preseason appearance tonight against Valerenga.

The Spain international goalkeeper has not featured during pre-season after an operation but expects to play against Valerenga on Monday as Liverpool look for a confidence boosting win following last week's 3-0 defeat by Galatasaray.

Reina said: "The target is to play in Valerenga, and then after Valencia there is one more week [until the new season] and that should be good enough to get that fitness.

"Just because of precaution, we didn't want to rush it. There was no point in doing that. But I'm totally recovered now, training with the team as normal and looking forward."
