Crewe start their pre-season campaign with the visit of Champions League runners up Liverpool. They are expected to bring a strong side to South Cheshire.
Ben Rix (shin splints) and Michael O`Connor (hernia) are definitely ruled out of the pre-season fixture. Eugen Bopp travelled with the squad to Portugal but is unlikely to feature as he is still recuperating following an ankle injury at the tail end of last season.
Danny Woodards is also doubtful with a thigh injury sustained on the training camp in Portugal. Ryan Lowe and David Vaughan are suffering with tight groins but both are expected to take part in the showcase fixture.
Former Everton trainee who joined the club from relegated Bradford City this summer. Will be looking to impress on his home debut. A box to box midfielder who will be looking forward to locking horns with Steven Gerrard.
