Liverpool 3 Torino 1: Firmino, Wijnaldum and Sturridge on target for Reds

Liverpool 3 Torino 1: Firmino, Wijnaldum and Sturridge on target for Reds

Jurgen Klopp's side have only been beaten once in their nine friendlies this summer and kick off their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

Lovren returned to Melwood on Monday after Croatia reached the World Cup final, while Klavan has a muscle complaint.

And that has left many Liverpool fans thinking they can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title. Dejan [Lovren] is in, he had not a very long holiday.

The Reds have invested £67 million ($87m) worth of faith in the Brazil global after losing trust in last season's goalkeeping options.

"For Raggy (Klavan) and Joel it is probably not good enough as they are not fit for the weekend, but we don't need 12 centre-halves". Brazil's number one, who impressed with his performances at the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, will take over the gloves from Loris Karius, who made two mistakes in the Reds' Champions League final defeat.


"I was not surprised, to be honest, but as a human being I was hoping for it and I loved it", he added. "It was a really big gesture". "In his first session he looked like he trained the whole three weeks he was off", said the Reds boss.

"He was in a really good shape, so we thought a few minutes tonight should be possible".

Fabinho is now struggling with illness after undergoing a scan that came back all clear on Thursday, while Henderson and Alexander-Arnold reported for pre-season later than the majority of their teammates following England's participation at the World Cup.

"For Raggy [Klavan] and Joel [Matip], probably they are not fit and can not play for the weekend, but we don't need 12 centre-halves, we only need two at least and one to change would be extremely cool".

Bridge reckons a deal for Pulisic before tomorrow's 5pm transfer deadline isn't completely off the table.
