Michael Owen predicts Liverpool v West Ham United

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad.

"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".

Klopp admitted that it was likely that some players leave before the end of August, with the transfer window across much of Europe open until the end of the month.

'Joel did train in small parts like Joe did so we will see how they are today'.

"But I have no idea what will happen in the next two days". You have to wait.

Liverpool concluded their preseason with a convincing 3-1 victory over Italian side Torino on Tuesday evening.

Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge all got on the scoresheet ahead of the Reds' Premier League opener with West Ham United on Sunday afternoon. It was only a check-up and the scan was clear, but he felt ill when he came back so we sent him home again, ' Klopp said at his press conference on Friday.

Jurgen Klopp's side have only been beaten once in their nine friendlies this summer and kick off their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham United on Sunday. We've seen the impact he made after arriving in January. "In his first session he looked like he trained the whole three weeks he was off", said the Reds boss.

Although Klopp did say that Jordan Henderson was in good shape after his late arrival back with the squad, it seems like the manager has not yet decided if his captain is ready to play from the start.

"He can control the game and that's good, really good, and for us he is a very important option of course".

According to the Mirror, Rio said: "I'm a United fan, and I want to see them win the title, but I fear it's going to be very hard for that to happen this season".
