Jurgen Klopp's men begin their Premier League campaign against West Ham on Sunday.

With Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all carrying injuries Virgil van Dijk cruised through the first half alongside under-23 defender Nathaniel Philips. Yes I think it is possible.

"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".

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad.

Liverpool fans have given troubled goalkeeper Loris Karius a rousing reception on his return to Anfield following his calamitous display in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final.

Liverpool should have taken the lead moments earlier when gifted a hugely generous penalty by referee Michael Oliver.

Trump legal team drafting letter about 'reluctance' to answer obstruction questions
The report cited several sources who claimed that Trump "has been urged to stop tweeting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting". So today's breathless headlines are, as the Powerline blog's Paul Mirengoff called them , "fake news".


"As a human being I was hoping for it, that it would be like this", Klopp told reporters after the game.

Henderson helped England to reach the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, which meant he only returned to training on Sunday.

"Hendo for sure was involved in the first goal with a press ball that he didn't win".

"All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time, but this result will help the defence and help him know how we play as well", Robertson said.

"He was in a really good shape so we thought a few minutes tonight would be possible. I still remember the Burnley game (at Turf Moor in August 2016) when we lost 2-0 with 80 per cent possession".

The £13m signing from Stoke is another Anfield star to catch the supporters' imagination across their pre-season fixtures, his overhead kick against Manchester United going a long way to firing the Swiss star into his new fans' affections.
