Henderson in contention for opener, says Klopp

Henderson in contention for opener, says Klopp

"Joel, we'll have to see", said Klopp speaking to the Liverpool Echo. "I still remember the Burnley game (at Turf Moor in August 2016) when we lost 2-0 with 80 per cent possession". I don't update each second.

"There's competition everywhere. All over the pitch we've got two or three players in the same position", he told Liverpoolfc.com.

Despite the restricted game-time for most, there was enough quality to demonstrate Liverpool's readiness for the coming campaign.

Liverpool signed Roma stopper Alisson for a world-record fee of £67m last month, putting Karius' future in doubt.

New goalkeeper Alisson started for Liverpool, before Loris Karius was given a rousing reception when he replaced the Brazilian in the second half, just over two months after suffering concussion and making two awful errors in the Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid.

From there it looked like Torino could be in a night like the one that befell Napoli in the Aviva Stadium last weekend.

Trump attacked public opinion polls, except one that said he was popular among Republicans. "We need to elect more Republicans". That's support she once gave to the president. "I'll always leave room for negotiation", he said. "I'll follow him to the end".

"I loved it, to be honest". We showed tonight a really nice face and I liked it.

In the biggest moment of his young career, two incredible errors from Karius proved to be the difference between the Reds and Real Madrid, with the goalkeeper tearfully apologising to traveling Liverpool fans after the final whistle. "You need these players to help create a special spirit in the squad, otherwise it doesn't work".

The Reds are widely tipped to challenge for the Premier League title this season following their £160m transfer spree, in which they have signed Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson and Naby Keita to bolster a squad that finished fourth in the league last season, while finishing as Champions League runners-up.

Fekir remains the most likely new arrival, if any, on deadline day but the Reds have also been linked with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Christian Pulisic.

The Liverpool manager could have a problem in central defence for the Premier League opener against West Ham United, however.
