Adjust Comment Print

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for the Anfield support after their positive reception for Loris Karius during Liverpool's 3-1 friendly win over Torino.

Liverpool kick off their new Premier League campaign on Sunday when they welcome West Ham United to Anfield, and Reds fans will be desperate to see Keita in action for the first time competitively. "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 should also be remembered that Liverpool defeated Manchester City three times last season, as well as recently beating the sky blues in pre-season. Sadio Mane stayed on his feet to get a shot away but referee Michael Oliver called play back for a foul on the Senegalese winger by defender Bremner.

Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly be happy with what has been a very successful pre-season for Liverpool. They have also landed Monaco midfielder Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City, in addition to RB Leipzig and Guinea worldwide Naby Keita who was already secured in summer 2017.

Wijnaldum then doubled the hosts advantage three minutes later with a handsome move that saw the Dutch global sneak in behind the visitors defence before pelting the ball into the back of the net.

Just as Liverpool were threatening to run riot as they did in Saturday's 5-0 rout of Napoli, they were pegged back by a thunderous header from Belotti, which left the world's most expensive goalkeeper Alisson helpless.
