Liverpool keeper Karius grateful for Anfield reception

Liverpool keeper Karius grateful for Anfield reception

An hour after the end of Liverpool's 3-1 win over Torino, Klopp and his players were still pitchside, signing autographs for fans and posing for selfies. 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.

Karius, who was the starting goalkeeper for Liverpool last season, had a poor performance at UEFA Champions League Final against Real Madrid.

It should therefore give Clyne the opportunity to start the club's Premier League opener against West Ham United on Sunday and steal a march on his global teammate, who he will be hopeful of dislodging from his role with the England team.

Alongside of a clip of his entrance to the match, he tweeted: "Thank you Anfield for this reception!".

Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip will be assessed before a decision is made on whether they are fit to feature against West Ham United.

Baker Mayfield throws bullet for another TD
However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass. The Browns let Mayfield play into the fourth quarter after he entered in the second.

While he has had very little to do so far since signing from AS Roma last month, Alisson has impressed in his first two pre-season fixtures with his official Liverpool debut just days away.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp then made seven changes at the break with Xherdan Shaqiri, Andy Robertson, Marko Grujic, Curtis Jones, Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings all making an appearance with Shaqiri providing the assist on the final goal.

Liverpool boss Klopp has not completely ruled out transfer activity tomorrow either.

"I was not surprised, to be honest, but as a human being I was hoping for it, that it would be like this". I don't know. I'm happy about the game tonight and about what we did, the whole atmosphere. Yet their biggest deal was the arrival of Alisson Becker, who will shore up the defence from between the sticks and ruin Loris Karius' Liverpool career to even greater extent.
