Jurgen Klopp praises Anfield reception for Loris Karius

Alisson arrives from Roma where he faced the Reds in the Champions League semi-final last season.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

"Hendo is so important to us, not only as a player but also as a person and as a leader", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

"You need these players like Hendo and Millie (James Milner) to help create a special spirit in the squad, otherwise it doesn't work".

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




"There are no doubts about Hendo".

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.

It has been clear to see that the World Cup victor has been a target all summer long and was close to signing in June, only for the deal to fall through, apparently due to pre-historic medical conditions concerning a knee ligament operation back in 2015. "He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him". "It is nothing serious but it was not possible tonight as he played on Saturday", said Klopp.

Following the horror showing, the club had hoped Karius would return to the pre-season full of confidence, but after two errors during the Reds' pre-season tour, the Reds opted to smash the club transfer record for Brazillian shot-stopper Alisson Becker.

Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge all got on the scoresheet ahead of the Reds' Premier League opener with West Ham United on Sunday afternoon. "Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday".
