Klopp hails Loris Karius' Anfield reception

Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool concluded their preparations for the new season with a victory over Italian side Torino at Anfield.

Liverpool will give skipper Jordan Henderson every chance to be ready for Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham United despite the midfielder only returning to preseason training on Sunday, manager has Jurgen Klopp said.

Within a matter of minutes Georginio Wijnaldum was in for Liverpool's second of the night.

Everybody's still got his back... for now, at least.

Fabinho, who had scored 16 in a row from the spot for AS Monaco, sent the penalty several yards wide. Salah's driving run across the box teed the striker up for a shot which found the top corner via a deflection.

Wijnaldum then doubled the hosts advantage three minutes later with a handsome move that saw the Dutch global sneak in behind the visitors defence before pelting the ball into the back of the net.

During the ensuing fist-fight, the woman now clutching the broom handle is knocked to the ground, but does not let go of her grip. As Thomas runs out of the salon another can be heard saying "What are you doing", leading to Zhing attacking her as well.

The signing of Alisson from Roma in a world record fee for a goalkeeper was the latest blow to Karius' time at Anfield, but the move will have taken some of the pressure off of him.

Liverpool's Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane celebrate a goal.

Klopp has an nearly irreplaceable front three at his disposal at Liverpool, but should one of them suffer an injury or receive a suspension, the German has little in reserve apart from Ings and Danirl Sturridge.

The Reds did not finish with a single player who started the game and eight of Torino's own changes took the sting out of the game.

"But at the same time I understand the lads have been back a lot longer than me and they have had minutes on the pitch".

The Reds are widely tipped to challenge for the Premier League title this season following their £160m transfer spree, in which they have signed Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson and Naby Keita to bolster a squad that finished fourth in the league last season, while finishing as Champions League runners-up.
