Jurgen Klopp hopeful Roberto Firmino can be ready for Reds season opener

Jurgen Klopp hopeful Roberto Firmino can be ready for Reds season opener

Loris has also been linked with a move away from Liverpool, though no official talks have been held and as yet the German remains at Anfield.

And, at least provisionally, Alisson will not be Liverpool's number one but their number 13.

Alisson Becker makes his debut in goal for Liverpool following his switch to the club from AS Roma last month.

The Brazil global had always been linked with a move to Anfield before the deal was confirmed on July 19, with neither Simon Mignolet nor Loris Karius convincing last term - the latter at fault for two goals in the 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

But if Alisson can help Liverpool win major trophies, that fee - a world record for a goalkeeper - will be worth it.

It was a fine finish from the Englishman who didn't feature at the World Cup, and Milner then provided the assist for Liverpool's second only minutes later.

Likewise, Trent Alexander-Arnold, who Klopp has allowed to return to training a week earlier than expected.

"I hope I can help and bring something extra to the team". We planned it a long, long time ago - it was still last season when we said we wanted to have this game, to make it possible for all the people in Liverpool to come to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp has urged fans not to get carried away with Liverpool's mega spending.

"Training for the outfield players is obviously different than for the goalies, but we want to see him as well against Napoli". "It's only positive, even the performance in training - which is not too important in the beginning - are already exceptional, so all good".

Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly against Torino on August 7, five days before hosting West Ham in their Premier League opener.
