After a dramatically disappointing final day of the Premier League season which saw Manchester City snatch the title late on after a spectacular come back against Aston Villa, Liverpool have no time to lick their wounds as the Champions League final fast approaches.
Ahead of the much anticipated match, Liverpool players have been getting down to business at their training camp, and have been spotted using some cutting edge technology.
The club have yet again called on the services of German neuroscientist Dr Niklas Hausler and his business partner Patrick Hantschke, they are the brains behind the company, neuro11.
Neuro11's technology is specially designed to train the brain directly, in order to help the Liverpool players reach their optimum mental state.
On their website, neuro11 describes themselves as "state of the art mental strength training for athletes."
It is thought that those using this technology will be in the optimum mental condition required to perform to the highest level.

Full backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kostas Tsimikas were both spotted using the technology, electrodes were attached to them in a bid to collect data that can allow their training programmes to be tailored to suit them individually.
The company have been working with Liverpool since last August, with the hope that they will improve the team's quality from set pieces. And the technology seems to have worked its magic.
Liverpool finished joint first along with Manchester City for most goals scored from set pieces, with both teams scoring 15.
Since the help from neuro11 arrived, Liverpool have won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup, both times winning via a penalty shootout, a situation that requires top mental concentration.
Klopp has often labelled his players as 'mentality monsters' and they have one last hurdle to get over as the club look for their seventh triumph in the Champions League, standing in their way is 14 times winner, Real Madrid, a team that has all the know-how to win in this competition.
