Tranmere 0 – Liverpool XI 2 (Pre-season friendly, August 3, 2010) Liverpool fielded a young side with the Europa League second leg clash with Rabotnicki just two days later – Roy Hodgson’s Anfield debut as manager of the Merseyside giants. Tranmere gave a number of trialists the opportunity to impress against Liverpool.
