Liverpool finish pre-season with Torino canter

Karius played the last 20 minutes of Liverpool's friendly game against Torino which ended with 3-1 victory for the hosts. It's a great price - a world-record price - and when you pay that type of money you are expecting a top goalkeeper, but he will be new to the Premier League so let's see how he adapts.

"Liverpool will give the title a go, they're the second best now, I think they've bought very well, very well", Merson told Sky Sports.

It was the Egyptian's pressing on the edge of the box which saw him dispossess Tomas Rincon in the build-up to Liverpool's 16th-minute penalty. They should line up 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.

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.

With their signings, Liverpool have strengthened their goalkeeping, midfield and forward options.


Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip will be assessed before a decision is made on whether they are fit to feature against West Ham United.

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.

The Reds did not finish with a single player who started the game and eight of Torino's own changes took the sting out of the game.

Liverpool would score on two occasions moments later.

His awful record in cup finals - seven games, one victory - is well known but he does have experience of winning league titles, doing so twice with Borussia Dortmund.
