Liverpool vs Torino, friendly: live score updates

But we want to know which ones make it into the starting line-up for the opener against West Ham at Anfield on Sunday.

"I think (Joe Gomez) is okay". "Dejan (Lovren) is in but he's not had a long holiday (after the World Cup final)". "But I'm happy we can start at the weekend because preseason is good but the season is better still".

The goals came from Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge, but the most heart-warming, rousing cheer of the night came in the 73rd minute when Alisson came off to be replaced by Loris Karius.

Liverpool fans have given troubled goalkeeper Loris Karius a rousing reception on his return to Anfield following his calamitous display in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final.

It was a moment which pleased Klopp as much as the performance.

"We have to see how he reacts".

But while City begin the campaign as firm favourites after their record-breaking title campaign last season, they will be well aware of the threat posed by Juergen Klopp's improving Liverpool and the rest of the big six.

"I am not sure, but it is Hendo".

"But it is Hendo, so to be honest in the first session it looked like he trained for the whole three weeks".

"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".

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

It adds up to an exciting team and by getting their major transfer business done early, Klopp has had time to integrate his new signings into the squad over the course of the pre-season tour of America.

Meanwhile, Wolves are on the verge of signing Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

The midfielder (23) is set to have a medical and then complete a transfer before today's 5pm deadline.
