Liverpool have been handed a Europa League third qualifying round clash with either Macedonian side FK Renova or FC Gomel of Belarus for their first competitive match under Brendan Rodgers, who will be under no pressure this term to get the team into the Champions League according to Reds principal owner John Henry.

This time last year Henry, as lead figure for owners Fenway Sports Group, told former manager Kenny Dalglish the requirement was a top-four finish, but no such demands are being put on Rodgers - or at least, not at this early stage of his reign.

"We don't want to put any pressure on Brendan by saying you have got to make the Champions League this year," said Henry, who has seen the Liverpool squad close up this week as they have been in Boston preparing for their pre-season tour of the United States.
