Liverpool complete impressive pre-season with Torino win

Jurgen Klopp suffered his third defeat in a final with Liverpool

The Reds will go into their fixture against the Serie A side at Anfield with Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez as their only two fit senior centre halves, with Ragnar Klavan, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip all struggling with minor knocks.

Henderson had a hard start to life as a Liverpool player when he joined the club in 2011 from Sunderland, but for the past few seasons has transformed into a dependable option in the middle of the pitch. It is nothing serious but it was not possible tonight as he played on Saturday, ' said Klopp.

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad. They should lineup with the same back four as they fielded in Kiev, with youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold set to get the nod over compatriot Nathaniel Clyne, bolstered by his World Cup experience.

"If someone wants to see it in a hard way - maybe August and September before the Champions League starts, before the EFL Cup starts - one or two players might think they don't play enough, but after that we will need them all constantly".

There was even a rousing reception for Loris Karius on his return to Anfield following that Champions League final against Real Madrid.

After signing goalkeeper Alisson for £65 million last month, Klopp had said he thought the Brazilian would be Liverpool's last signing of the summer.

"When Manchester United visit Anfield in December, I'm sure they'll use every trick in the book to try to wind him up!"

"But it is Hendo, so to be honest in the first session it looked like he trained for the whole three weeks". "It is not about judging our situation and thinking 'Wow, really good.' We need to be ready each week - not only for a few games".

"Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead".
