Alisson to make Liverpool debut in Napoli friendly, says Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may be on the hunt for a new back-up goalkeeper

Liverpool will have to make do without the services of Marko Grujic, Danny Ings, Adam Lallana and Joel Matip for their penultimate pre-season clash against Napoli on Saturday, the club confirmed.

Liverpool have since splashed £67 million on Alisson from AS Roma, who will inevitably become their number one ahead of the likes of Karius, so perhaps a move to build his confidence would be the best for both parties.

The goalkeeper will have "A. Becker 13" on his shirt this evening.

With all their new faces under the same roof for the first time, Liverpool had their raft of new signings perform karaoke as a mass initiation ceremony at their training base in France.

Phillips was a surprise top performer in Liverpool's pre-season tour and was a permanent fixture at centre back for the Reds with Dejan Lovren off duty after his World Cup heroics.

When asked about Firmino's availability, Klopp told reporters: 'It's good to have him here, he looks in good shape, and if possible we will see [if he can play against Napoli].

Zanu-PF wins majority in Zimbabwe parliament elections, officials say
The southern African country this week held its first elections since the downfall of longtime leader Robert Mugabe in 2017. Chamisa declared himself the victor .

He will be looking to step up his preparations to be fit in time for the opening Premier League game of the season against West Ham United.

They all come as complete newcomers to English football, and the adjustment to it tends to take a few weeks, not least in a team like Klopp's Liverpool, with their idiosyncratic rhythms, their crescendos of high-intensity football and phases of lower-intensity recuperation.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp promised Mignolet would play 85 to 87 per cent of his side's matches last season, but then dropped the Belgian, putting error-prone Loris Karius between the sticks.

"As good as Alisson was in his first season in Rome, Courtois we have seen over a longer period".

Nathaniel Clyne is back in contention after returning to training following the birth of his child, with Naby Keita and Gini Wijnaldum recovering from minor injuries that forced them out of the last game.
