Jurgen Klopp praises Anfield reception for Loris Karius

The 25-year-old will be a vital cog in the Liverpool machine as they attempt to push on and become real contenders for the Premier League title, and Robertson has been nothing but praiseworthy of the Brazilian.

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

After such an early flurry of action, the goals dried up temporarily.

The Champions League finalists will kick off as second favourites behind Manchester City, and they're seen as the Citizens' main rivals for a reason, as they dished out one of only two City defeats of the Premier League season past year. Dejan Lovren reported back to training on Monday after finishing as a World Cup runner-up with Croatia, meaning Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are the sole senior centre-backs available.

"We showed tonight a really nice face and I liked it". "He probably won't play Tuesday and Sunday will be very hard as well", continued the German, who is known to stick to a very rigorous training strategy.

On Tuesday, masked security operatives were seen blocking access to the parliament building in the capital Abuja. It is not clear if the meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon will still hold after today's turn of events.

Signs have been incredibly positive for Klopp who has seen the Reds on the losing side just once in eight pre-season outings this summer, the most recent of which came on Saturday, when they beat Napoli 5-0 away from home.

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

When Oxlade-Chamberlain is back to full fitness, the situation may change dramatically as toward's the end of last season, he was Liverpool's best option in midfield by far.

"All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time but today will help the defence and help him know how we play as well", he said. "Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday".

In the second half at Anfield midfielders Fabinho - who missed an early penalty - and Marko Grujic both filled in as Van Dijk only played 45 minutes but Klopp is not anxious ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham.
