Jürgen Klopp sets the record straight on Jordan Henderson's Liverpool future

Jürgen Klopp sets the record straight on Jordan Henderson's Liverpool future

Liverpool kick off their Premier League season against West Ham at Anfield on Sunday.

The Brazilian surprisingly stepped up instead of Mo Salah after a foul on Sadio Mane but dragged his shot wide of the left-hand post.

After retooling their team during the current transfer window, Liverpool appear set to be significant challengers to Manchester City, both in the Premier League and Champions League.

Within a matter of minutes Georginio Wijnaldum was in for Liverpool's second of the night.

Karius carried his poor form into pre-season, with Liverpool fans calling out for a replacement after mistakes in friendlies against Tranmere and Borussia Dortmund.

While City start as title favourites, Liverpool know they are capable of outgunning Guardiola's side - they beat them 4-3 in the league at Anfield in January before a 3-0 victory in the Champions League quarterfinal, first leg.

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. The former England global believes that only Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk would make it into Pep Guardiola's team.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists Jordan Henderson remains an important player at the club. Sturridge had a snapshot parried by Sirigu and Ings saw his effort cleared off the line, shooting as he fell.

"He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him, but overall the squad performed very well today". Yet their biggest deal was the arrival of Alisson Becker, who will sure up the defence from between the sticks and ruin Loris Karius' Liverpool career to even greater extent.

Sturridge completed the scoring late on with a glancing header from Shaqiri's cross.

Speaking to Goal, Salah was asked who he would like to see Liverpool sign before this week's transfer deadline.
