It should therefore give Clyne the opportunity to start the club's Premier League opener against West Ham United on Sunday and steal a march on his global teammate, who he will be hopeful of dislodging from his role with the England team.

There is plenty of buzz surrounding the Reds following the arrival of some exciting summer signings.

Loris Karius was a figure of fun for the majority the summer having made two horrendous mistakes in the Champions League final, which gave the European Cup to Real Madrid for the third consecutive season.

"Obviously in the offensive department we are able to do some nice things but that's only one part of the game".

"Hopefully he will go on to be a great goalkeeper and be remembered for that but Liverpool had to make a change because I think there would be no belief in Liverpool actually, never mind winning a league but challenging for the league with the two goalkeepers they had".

Klopp has not ruled out captain Jordan Henderson featuring on Sunday despite only returning to training at the weekend.


The Reds stormed to victory over the Italians thanks to goals from James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno.

According to the Evening Standard Liverpool forward Danny Ings looks set to leave the club today, with Crystal Palace and Southampton leading the way for the Englishman's signature.

I don't like the way the game has gone in terms of the mega-spending on average players, but Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer inflated the market to ridiculous levels and it means that fourth choice left-backs are now worth £20m.

Liverpool come into the season full of confidence, backed by the big spend of Jurgen Klopp throughout the window.

After a whirlwind 12 months, the Reds are now favoured by many to be Manchester City's closest challengers in the Premier League title race.
