Yes, Liverpool are having yet another warm-weather training camp between the games against Bournemouth and Bayern Munich, Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Friday.
The boss insists the reason for the camp is not Liverpool's decline in form that led to draws at Leicester and West Ham. The Reds will have 'a little change of scenery' simply because they have the time to do it and the camp will help the players concentrate on training.
"We will go away for a couple of days just so that we can really focus on training, so that we don’t have to drive between sessions, home and here again, things like that," the German tactician told his news conference.

The Reds have 10 days in between the Bournemouth game & the Champions League game against Bayern.
"Just a little change of scenery and do it again. It always worked out pretty well for me as a manager when I had the opportunity to do it; being 100 per cent focused, a couple of meetings.
"We would have done it if we were 10 points up, it’s exactly the same. It’s not that we do it because [of our form]; no, we do it because we have time and can do it because we play the Champions League game a week later. That’s all."
