Youngster and academy star Kevin Stewart was pictured next to Lucas, while 21 year-old summer signing Marko Grujic was also present.
Liverpool made six new acquisitions in the summer but it seems they have all settled well under Klopp and the image of the team shows a real bond.
Klopp’s side are currently level on points with Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table after their opening nine fixtures.
They will be hoping to reach the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup against Tottenham on Tuesday night after losing in a domestic cup final to Manchester City last season.
