Loris Karius Given Rousing Reception By Liverpool Fans On Anfield Return

Loris Karius Given Rousing Reception By Liverpool Fans On Anfield Return

Ings is likely to join a number of names leaving Merseyside today, including Simon Mignolet, Lazar Markovic, Divock Origi and Pedro Chirivella - a clear out this Liverpool side has been crying out for.

Liverpool had to make the record-breaking signing of Alisson, says Jamie Carragher, as sticking with Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet would have led to "no belief" in a title challenge.

"We will see what happens", he started.

Up front, the dynamic trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have support from new arrival Xherdan Shaqiri and if his goal in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in America last week is a sign of what is to come, he will be a bargain at £13m. You have to wait.

Even though the Liverpool side that will begin their latest attempt to win a first English top flight title since 1990 against West Ham at Anfield can not be compared to the iconic teams in the club's past right now, I have rarely felt more confident in what lies ahead as a new season beckons for a Reds squad oozing with talent and depth.

MIna: I want to win things at Everton
Everton have won the race for his signature with the attacking midfielder signing a four-year contract. "When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy".

"I have only been back for a couple of days but I sense how hard the lads have worked and they are right up at the standard that they need to be at to go flying into the first game of the season".

The Liverpool captain only returned to training on Sunday, but Klopp did not rule him out of contention to feature against West Ham on the weekend.

"He said: "[I'm] not sure, don't know - we have to see how he reacts. "But it is Hendo, so to be honest in the first session it looked like he trained for the whole three weeks", Klopp told the club website.

"He was in a really good shape, so we thought a few minutes tonight should be possible. 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".
