Alberto Moreno and Mamadou Sakho appeared in high spirits as the Liverpool duo posed for a training ground selfie ahead of Thursday’s Europa League game at Augsburg.

The Liverpool pair played their part in an impressive 6-0 victory over struggling Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon.

Moreno and Sakho have been regulars in Jurgen Klopp’s starting line-up in 2016 and the defensive duo will hope to feature against the Bundesliga side in the first leg of the Europa League last-32 tie.

Sakho, who is proving a prolific Snapchat user since joining the social media app earlier last year, posted a selfie with Moreno in the Liverpool changing room at Melwood.

Sakho’s caption read: “With my team-mate Moreno”

Augsburg take on Liverpool in their most prestigious Europa League game to date, with Klopp returning to his native Germany for an 11th encounter with the Fuggerstädter.
