Klopp hails Loris Karius' Anfield reception

Nathaniel Clyne

Liverpool complete their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 win over Torino at Anfield, where Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge were among the scorers. Dejan (Lovren) is in but he's not had a long holiday (after the World Cup final).

Henderson had a hard start to life as a Liverpool player when he joined the club in 2011 from Sunderland, but for the past few seasons has transformed into a dependable option in the middle of the pitch.

"Hopefully he will go on to be a great goalkeeper and be remembered for that but Liverpool had to make a change because I think there would be no belief in Liverpool actually, never mind winning a league but challenging for the league with the two goalkeepers they had".

'For Raggy (Klavan) and Joel it is probably not good enough as they are not fit for the weekend but we don't need 12 centre-halves'.

The game marks the first time the Reds have lined up in front of their own fans this summer, meaning Fabinho, Shaqiri, Alisson and Keita are in line to experience Anfield for the first time since signing.

1 killed, 90 wounded by Israel in Hamas-led Gaza protests
Earlier on Monday, Hayya and Mushtaha set out from the blockaded Gaza for the Egyptian capital via the Rafah border crossing. It said a tank fired at a Hamas military post in Gaza after Palestinians briefly crossed the frontier and threw bombs.

New goalkeeper Alisson started for Liverpool, before Loris Karius was given a rousing reception when he replaced the Brazilian in the second half, just over two months after suffering concussion and making two awful errors in the Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid. "More consistency - we were not inconsistent, but we can be more consistent", he said. "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's official website.

Following the horror showing, the club had hoped Karius would return to the pre-season full of confidence, but after two errors during the Reds' pre-season tour, the Reds opted to smash the club transfer record for Brazillian shot-stopper Alisson Becker.

"Is it possible being different in a really hard world?"

"I thought he looked very comfortable and I think we adapted to him quite easily".
