Liverpool's Loris Karius thanks fans for warm reception in friendly

Liverpool's Loris Karius thanks fans for warm reception in friendly

Liverpool have improved their squad from past year by addressing their defensive issues, according to former club midfielder Jamie Redknapp.

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

Naby Keita will help to further bolster Klopp's midfield after his £48m move to Liverpool FC from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

'Why not? He's a top player and he's gone to a top club, it's all good'.

"What I like about Liverpool is that they've addressed problems".

That's according to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge who believes the Reds are interested in the U.S. worldwide.

"You look at getting to a Champions League final and having Virgil van Dijk for a full season". He cost £70m but I reckon you could sell him for a lot more than that now.

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. They should line up with the same back four as they fielded in Kiev, with youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold set to get the nod over compatriot Nathaniel Clyne, bolstered by his World Cup experience. "I think everyone knew from his first interview he spoke very good English so the settling-in period is over for him and I think he is very much part of the squad", Robertson added.

"With the players they've bought in, I don't know what else they could have done".

"There is a pressure to a certain extent but it's a positive pressure".

With West Ham visiting Anfield for the Premier League opener on Sunday, Klopp withdrew most of his first string, giving run-outs to the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana, Danny Ings and Marko Grujic, along with another off-season recruit, Xherdan Shaqiri.
