Date set for Alisson's Liverpool debut

With the Premier League starting in less than a month Liverpool will be looking to get the 4 new signings into the team mould as they look to increase the team chemistry that would help the Merseyside win their first ever Premier League title in Premier League era as well as their first league titles since 1990.

"We expect more from ourselves", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

When asked about Liverpool making an approach for the 19-year-old he responded: "I like Christian, I've known him since he was a kid".

Klopp himself remains a big fan of the player he knew as a precocious youth talent at the Westfalenstadion, declaring before the sides' meeting on Sunday: "If, at one point, he will join us, I don't know". We will go again for the championship and each kind of cup but that does not mean I can sit here and say we will get it. It was intense, so I sent him on holiday again.

I am by no means claiming that Karus is fit to be Liverpool's No.1 and I think that Alisson's arrival from Roma spells the end of his career with the Reds but while he wears the Liver bird on his chest, we are obligated to show him nothing but our support.

The Brazil worldwide became the club's fourth signing of the summer transfer window, joining Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri in moving to Merseyside.

"I am in the third season and each season we have a period where a few people questioned me or our progress and all that stuff and in the end it was OK". So it means the quality of previous year plus Mahrez.

Showing how much he is hurting at the moment, Karius posted on Instagram, saying: "To those taking joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you. We need to be ready for that", Klopp told reporters in NY, where Liverpool were continuing their pre-season tour.

What should've been the proudest day of his life ended in tears, as the German stopper committed two horrific errors to hand Real Madrid the victory by three goals to one.

"We need a stronger squad and Loris is an outstanding goalkeeper".

"That's the situation. Create the circumstances that we can be more consistent and to improve individually and as a group".
