Loris Karius Given Rousing Reception By Liverpool Fans On Anfield Return

Jurgen Klopp celebrates with Curtis Jones

Elsewhere, Brazil global goalkeeper Alisson Becker was signed from AS Roma and the versatile Xherdan Shaqiri recruited to add depth to Jürgen Klopp's attacking options.

There is plenty of buzz surrounding the Reds following the arrival of some exciting summer signings.

"We will see what happens", he started.

There was also another promising display from 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips, who played nearly the full 90 minutes at centre-back, and a nice moment midway through the second half when Loris Karius, whose errors contributed to Liverpool's defeat in last season's Champions League final, replaced Alisson to huge cheers from the home crowd.

"Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead".

"The great thing about Chelsea under Roman Abramovich is whenever you think they have got problems, they are the one club in the top six who can fight back straight away and win a league".

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

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.

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. "In his first session he looked like he trained the whole three weeks he was off", said the Reds boss.

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

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