Paul Scholes make blunt admission about Liverpool FC, Man United

Adjust Comment Print

United finished above them last season.

Jurgen Klopp says he has "no idea" what will happen regarding potential Liverpool incomings or outgoings in the final few days of the transfer window.

Although new goalkeeper Alisson started the game in goal, he was replaced by Loris Karius in the closing stages.

You all know he went for a scan.

Monaco star Fabinho moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal back in June before Naby Keita finally completed his £48m switch from RB Leipzig.

Klopp revealed that Ragnar Klavan would be another absentee at Anfield while Joel Matip and Joe Gomez face late fitness tests.

Unai Emery signings not good enough, says Sky Sports pundit
Lehmann also gave a surprising compliment to Spurs by comparing them to the youthful Arsenal sides that he was a part of between 2003 and 2008.

Liverpool supporters largely blamed May's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on Karius' errors, and the German goalkeeper also struggled in preseason friendlies this summer against Tranmere Rovers and Borussia Dortmund.

In the second half at Anfield, midfielders Fabinho - who missed an early penalty - and Marko Grujic both filled in as Van Dijk only played 45 minutes, but Klopp is not anxious ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham.

The defensive midfield roles will be spliced up between new boy Fabinho, Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Jordan Henderson, with Adam Lallana's return from injury offering additional options. "Hendo needs a pre-season but not as much as the others as he has not had long off".

I don't like the way the game has gone in terms of the mega-spending on average players, but Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer inflated the market to ridiculous levels and it means that fourth choice left-backs are now worth £20m.

The Reds put four past United in an earlier pre-season fixture and followed that up with a deconstruction of the Serie A side in Dublin as Klopp's men aim to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

Jurgen Klopp has defended Liverpool's transfer policy this summer after they spent more than any of their Premier League rivals - £177million in total.
