  • EPL: Why Alisson refused to take Liverpool's No.1 shirt from Karius

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will make his debut in tomorrow's friendly against Napoli, manager Juergen Klopp has said.

But he also seems to breed a confidence amongst his teammates, and fans, that just wasn't there under either 'keeper, particularly Karius.

Liverpool conclude their preseason on Tuesday when they host Torino at Anfield ahead of their Premier League opener with West Ham United on Aug 12.

Milner then turned provider four minutes later as his cross from a short corner was nodded in by Wijnaldum.

"But they've got to, not just get out of the group stage, but get one or two rounds further in".

Mo Salah (Liverpool): Making his way back from the World Cup and injury, he looks back to full fitness.

Their pressing, particularly in the first half, was excellent and ensured they were a threat in every passage of play.


James Milner and Georgio Wijnaldum partner summer signing Naby Keita in midfield with Fabinho having to make do with a place on the bench alongside the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Loris Karius. A dynamic, intelligent, lung-busting midfielder who could find himself dominating games over the coming months. The Swiss with the well-developed upper-body looks an appropriate back-up for either of the wider positions - Salah, or Sadio Mane - in Klopp's trusted front three.

With the 25-year-old returning to training at the end of last week, Klopp says he is ready to pull on a Liverpool jersey for the first time in Dublin this weekend.

Ragnar Klavan, Adam Lallana, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic and Danny Ings all missed out.

Liverpool: Alisson 6, Clyne 6, Gomez 6, Van Dijk 6, Robertson 6, Wiljnaldum 7, Milner 7, Keita 7, Salah 8, Mane 7, Firmino 7.

Liverpool released an official statement announcing Alisson's "provisional" number, and confirmed that the goalkeeper will be assigned an official number in due course.

The Brazilian took part in his first training session for the club this week since sealing his big-money move from Roma and has immediately caught the eye of his new boss.
