Liverpool's next friendly is against Roma on Wednesday night at Fenway Park, while Preston travel to face Bamber Bridge on Tuesday.
Full-time: Preston 1 (Brownhill 45) Liverpool 2 (Suso 74, Peterson 77). The Reds turn it around thanks to Jordon Ibe, who set up both second-half goals. Rodgers will await news of Emre Can's injury.
Stuckmann has to react quickly to tip away an Ibe effort which threatened to sneak in under his crossbar.
Liverpool take the lead! Substitute Peterson initiated the attack on the left, with the ball taken on by Ibe to the byline before being whipped back to the Swede who finished coolly, the ball taking a slight deflection as Preston tried to block. 1-2.
Ibe with a driving run from the left towards the area, and he manages to get the pass through to Suso on the right. Once more the Spaniard steps inside on his left foot but this time he curls an excellent shot around Stuckmann from 15 yards to equalise. 1-1.
Suso tries to play in Coady down the right but he overhits what was a tricky pass and the ball goes out.
Looks like Jose Enrique could be about to join the fray. Liverpool moving the ball around nicely but creating relatively few chances.
Jordon Ibe with a fierce effort from the left edge of the box, the sho going just over the crossbar.
Seven changes for Liverpool - Lloyd Jones, Coates, Coady, Adorjan, Rossiter, Peterson and Stewart ON. Skrtel, Flanagan, Coutinho, Lucas, Allen, Wisdom and Borini OFF (64 mins).
Terrific left-wing cross from former Rangers man Andy Little but it's intercepted before it reaches Kevin Davies.
Frustration for Skrtel who was all over Huntington at the back post as Suso's corner came across. Free-kick to Preston.
A clever pass by Suso down the right channel to find Coutinho running into the box. The Brazilian's quick feet almost created the space he needed but Preston were able to prevent the shot.
Keane and King attempt to create something for Preston down the right but Robinson ends their hopes by heading the ball back to Brad Jones.
The 'new' Preston team are closing down the space among the Liverpool ranks. Suso then attempts a shot from 25 yards after coming in off the right flank.
Here's the Preston team for the second half: Stuckmann, Wiseman, King, Huntington, B Davies, Humphrey, Keane, Welsh, Laird, Little, K Davies.
Let's look at the half-time odds. Preston are 11/8 to see this one out, while Liverpool are out to 7/4 with Sky Bet. The draw is now 9/4.
Liverpool fan @adityaupaadhyay has tweeted in to say: 'Disappointed that despite a decent team, we do not lead. Pre-season is getting frustrating.'
So a late late first-half goal has given Preston a 1-0 advantage over their illustrious visitors Liverpool at the break. What did you make of that first period? What impressed you and what disappointed you about the Reds? Let me know - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me at @jonboy79.
Goal for Preston! The corner from Hayhurst flies to the back post where Garner's acrobatic overhead effort is superbly saved by Jones. However the ball drops to the feet of Brownhill who can't miss. 1-0.
Wisdom blocks a close-range shot from Brownhill after good work by Browne and the ball goes behind for a corner.
Bailey Wright makes a vital challenge on Lambert inside the area after Borini had found him with a ball in from the left.
Flanagan gets into a good position on the left side of the box but Woods closes the space and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
Not long until the break and not much urgency from either side now as the interval approaches. We already know Simon Grayson will field an entirely different Preston team for the second period.
A warm round of applause from the home and away fans after a 'Justice for the 96' chant is sung at Deepdale.
Play switches to the other end, and Lambert plays in Ibe into the box - but he takes one touch too many before firing over.
Brad Jones leaps high to claim Kilkenny's long flighted free-kick from the right flank. Then Garner gets away into the area after a mistake by Coutinho and forces the Australian into a decent save.
Lengthy spell of possession for Liverpool but they're unable to do much with it and the ball eventually goes behind for a Preston goal kick.
Lambert's shot from the right side of the box nicks off Buchanan but flies into the grateful gloves of Jamie Jones.
Buchanan is OK to continue for the rest of the half. Skrtel fails to clear the ball in time to avert another Preston corner. Lucas gets it away at the near post.
Corner to Liverpool as the ball deflects off Buchanan and goes behind. Skrtel heads towards goal but Buchanan is able to clear just when Borini looked set to pounce.
Ibe scored in the Shankly Shield clash here 12 months ago. Will he be able to get a goal again today?
Emre Can is trying to run off a calf strain but it's not worth the risk and he's coming off as a precaution.
Tom Clarke with a free header from the set piece but he nods it down and wide of Jones' left-hand post! That should have been the opening goal.
Teenage midfielder Josh Brownhill has really impressed so far and he's just tested the gloves of Brad Jones from long range. Corner to Preston.
Kilkenny nicks the ball away from Coutinho just outside the Preston penalty area. Good concentration from the Australia midfielder.
Corner to Preston - Skrtel with the block after good work by Paul Gallagher. Liverpool deal with it fairly comfortably.
The corner comes to nothing, and Preston break down the right. Kilkenny gets on the ball and lets fly with a shot that deflects off Wisdom's shoulder and goes just over the bar. No corner, though - the referee missed the deflection.
Liverpool win the first corner of the afternoon as Bailey Wright and Clarke combine to usher the ball away from Borini inside the box.
The flag is up - correctly - as Lucas passes down the right channel and finds Lambert, whose low shot whistled across goal and past the far post.
Jamie Jones is out sharply to dive at the feet of Borini. That was an important intervention by the North End keeper.
The bearded Borini is blocked off by North End skipper Tom Clarke as he tried to get a shot away from distance.
Good save from Jones! He dives low to his left and pushes away Garner's shot from just outside the D.
Liverpool's spell of possession when Flanagan gives the ball away on the left, having attempted to find Borini.
A promising spell for Preston - Skrtel had to head away a left-wing cross, Woods had a shot blocked and then Gallagher slipped in Browne on the left before Liverpool could get the ball clear.
Liverpool keeping the ball well for the opening minute or two. Looks like every player has had an early touch.
The teams are in the tunnel - both in their home kits (Preston - white shirts and socks and navy shorts; Liverpool all red).
Also on Borini, Phil Frisby has emailed in to say: 'Borini is a good squad player, but wouldn't be a threat from the bench that Lambert or Remy will provide. Good player but £14m is good business to me. Can has great potential, the Prem will suit him down to the ground.'
Here's the pre-match thoughts of Mark Cliff on email: 'Liverpool to win 3-0 today. I think Can will be a good solid signing, along with Lambert. Have Sunderland gone mad signing Borini for the reported £14 million?! He's not anything special. However, disappointed about the news of Remy - would prefer that the money was spent elsewhere, mainly the defence. If we stopped the leaks, our goal difference would be similar if not better than last year's.'
Brendan Rodgers has just confirmed that Sunderland's bid for Fabio Borini is indeed to Liverpool's liking. All that needs to be done now is for the Italian to agree terms with the Black Cats.
If you fancy both Lambert and Borini to get on the scoresheet today, check out Sky Bet's 'Both Players to Score' market: you can get 100/30 on them notching at Deepdale.
It's looking like it'll be a 4-2-3-1 line-up for Liverpool, with Lambert as the main frontman. Lucas and Joe Allen will shield the defence allowing Emre Can to get forward and supply the bullets, along with Borini and Coutinho.
Preston finished fifth in League One last season but saw their play-off hopes ended in the semi-finals by Rotherham, who went on to beat Leyton Orient at Wembley to reach the Championship. The last competitive meeting between North End and Liverpool was in January 2009, when Albert Riera and Fernando Torres scored in a 2-0 away win at Deepdale in the FA Cup third round.
Get in touch with me today by emailing me at email@example.com or tweet me at @jonboy79. Be great to hear your thoughts on Liverpool and Preston, and I'll use the pick of the crop here. Should Rodgers be selling Borini? And what can Emre Can bring to the side?
You can have a wager on today's game with Sky Bet, who have 43 markets open. Preston are 4/1 to win the match, while Liverpool are firm favourites at 8/15. If you think it'll be a draw, that's 3/1.
This could be Fabio Borini's last appearance in a Liverpool shirt. It's believed the Reds have agreed to sell the 23-year-old Italy striker to Sunderland for a fee of around £14million.
Liverpool won this pre-season fixture 4-0 a year ago in a match to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bill Shankly's birthday. Philippe Coutinho, Jordon Ibe, Raheem Sterling and Iago Aspas were the Reds goalscorers.
Preston captain John Welsh, who will play the second half, is another former Liverpool player. Now 30, he was born in Wavertree and made four league appearances for the Reds before moving on to Hull in 2006.
Kirkby-born goalkeeper Jamie Jones is making his home debut for Preston today, after joining on a free from Leyton Orient. Another Liverpudlian - defender Calum Woods - is also making his Deepdale bow after switching from Huddersfield.
Simon Grayson will field a different North End team for the second half of that today's friendly. That will be: Stuckmann, Wiseman, King, Huntington, B Davies, Humphrey, Keane, Welsh, Laird, Little, K Davies.
Preston team: J Jones, Woods, Clarke (c), Wright, Buchanan, Kilkenny, Browne, Gallagher, Brownhill, Hayhurst, Garner.
England striker Rickie Lambert - who has been confirmed as Liverpool's new number 9 for the 2014/15 campaign - and Germany Under-21 midfielder Emre Can will both be making their non-competitive debuts for the Reds today, after their moves from Southampton and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.
Liverpool substitutes: Ward, Smith, Enrique, Coady, Coates, Phillips, Robinson, Stewart, L Jones, Peterson, Suso, Rossiter, Ibe, Adorjan.
Liverpool team: Brad Jones; Kelly, Flanagan, Skrtel (c), Wisdom; Lucas, Allen, Can, Coutinho; Lambert, Borini.
