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

Jurgen Klopp celebrates with Curtis Jones

Liverpool fans have given troubled goalkeeper Loris Karius a rousing reception on his return to Anfield following his calamitous display in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final.

Liverpool begin their season by hosting West Ham on Sunday (1.30pm).

The "keeper made two costly blunders in the Champions League final as his side lost to Real Madrid, although it was later revealed he suffered a concussion moments prior to his first mistake after Sergio Ramos" knee collided with his head.

Jurgen Klopp is not concerned by his defensive options heading into the opening weekend of the season and won't enter the transfer market - despite being able to field only one senior centre-back in Liverpool's 3-1 friendly win over Torino.

It took them until the hour mark to make their next chance as Sturridge shot straight at Sirigu from a cute Xherdan Shaqiri pass, and Danny Ings was soon denied by a desperate clearance after bringing down a cross from the Swiss signing and squeezing a shot away.

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.

The former Newcastle and Bolton defender is now a highly regarded Liverpool scout, and according to the Liverpool Echo, recommended that the club take a look at Phillips when the defender was about to move to America to take a football scholarship with a university in 2016.

During Friday's pre-match press conference at Melwood, Jürgen Klopp said: "The [Fabinho's] scan was clear".

Liverpool's title bid does not just depend on how they fare.

"I loved it, to be honest". I don't know. I'm happy about the game tonight and about what we did, the whole atmosphere. Is it possible being different in a really hard world?

"It helps not only Loris, but Alisson as well that you can see this very special place".
