Liverpool 3-1 Torino: Reds end pre-season with victory at Anfield

Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not concerned by his defensive options heading into the opening weekend of the season, despite being able to field only one senior centre back in the 3-1 friendly win over Torino.

"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".

The second goal was better, with Wijnaldum driving into the box and receiving Firmino's pinpoint pass in his stride before stroking in a low shot. "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.

The Reds were awarded a penalty in the 15th minute when Sadio Mane was fouled, although it did look rather harsh on the defender.

Fabinho, who had scored 16 in a row from the spot for AS Monaco, sent the penalty several yards wide.

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is backing Alisson to become a playmaker as well as a goalkeeper for Liverpool this season.

Liverpool have spent north of £160m to try and bridge the gap to City, who won the title by 19 points last term, finishing 25 clear of Liverpool.

Liverpool's weakness in the goalkeeper position has been addressed with the purchase of Brazilian Alisson from AS Roma and with Virgil van Dijk having settled in following his move in January, Klopp's side look a much more complete package. Keita has a great touch, will make goals and score them.

"What happened in the Champions League final to Karius, yes disappointed as a Liverpool fan on the night, but we've all been there as players where you've had a poor game but to have it in such a big and memorable game".
