Both the Premier League and EFL clubs are given the go-ahead to host friendlies in anticipation for competitive action to resume later this month.
The terms, however, are that no team is to travel quite 90 minutes for every game which players would travel individually, not on club coaches.
Arsenal were the primary to require up the chance , having hosted Charlton at the Emirates on Saturday, emerging as 6-0 winners.
And as per the Lancashire Telegraph, Jurgen Klopp‘s side are to travel head to go with Blackburn, who currently sit 10th within the Championship.
The two teams are separated by around 40 miles, a journey easily covered in but 90 minutes.
Anfield is probably going to be the situation for the friendly, providing a testing opportunity
also before the complete Premier League return later this month. Reports suggest the match will happen on Thursday.
Liverpool started contact training with their full squad at the top of May,
while Blackburn only stepped up to Phase Two of their return to action including groups of up to 10 on Thursday –
with the Championship set to return on June 20. It might be , like Arsenal‘s against Charlton, quite one-sided affair.
Liverpool vs Blackburn Rovers Team News
The two teams last met during a pre-season friendly in 2018, with the Reds winning 2-0 because of Lazar Markovic
and Daniel Sturridge – each day which also saw with the signing of Alisson.
The behind closed doors meeting between the 2 teams is predicted to require place later in the week as they appear to enhance their match sharpness,
but remains hooked in to any positive cases of coronavirus – to which the Premier League‘s latest results saw all tests return negative.
The rumoured friendly would present Liverpool with fiery opposition,
a Championship side and fellow North West club are going to be wanting to get one over the Reds.
There’s no indication whether this game will happen at Anfield, Melwood, Ewood Park,
Brockhall or a neutral venue, but we expect it’ll be persisted Merseyside.
Liverpool are just six points faraway from being crowned Premier League Champions, and gathering some momentum by beating Blackburn would be good.
There has been no football for the simplest a part of two months and players are likely to be a touch rusty and out of sync, but a few of friendlies will fix that.

The game gets underway at 3:30pm BST.
