  • Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final

Keita became the club's record buy when the Reds agreed to a €60 million transfer past year, but to the deal's unique structrue, the Guinean only arrived in the summer of 2018 to bolster their midfield.

Liverpool's run to the Champions League final and their impressive three wins over Manchester City in the last campaign have raised hopes on Merseyside that they could be the closest challengers to Pep Guardiola's side this season.

"With the players they've bought in, I don't know what else they could have done", Redknapp told Sky Sports.

While the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner are also competing for a place in Klopp's starting XI.

Brazil's number one, who impressed with his performances at the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, will take over the gloves from Loris Karius, who made two mistakes in the Reds' Champions League final defeat. "You need these players to help create a special spirit in the squad, otherwise it doesn't work".

"There are no doubts about Hendo".

Thomas is also facing charges for menacing, assault and harassment, which protesters hope will be dropped. In video of the incident, two workers smacked the customers with broomsticks as they ran out the door.

Henderson is on the back-foot in terms of fitness having just returned from his post-World Cup holidays but he came on as a substitute against Torino last night.

"I got a break of three weeks and I'm now ready and fit again, and full of desire to win many games here and hopefully we can win a couple of trophies".

The Reds will start their Premier League campaign with a clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

"All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time, but this result will help the defence and help him know how we play as well", Robertson said.

"He can still play as the eight or we could play some games with a double six, Fabinho could play the eight or whatever, that's all possible", Klopp stated as he hinted at a flexible formation for the 2018/19 season.

The Liverpool Echo's Ian Doyle gave Fabinho a 5 out 10 for his performance in the Reds' 3-1 pre-season victory over Torino at Anfield.
