Jurgen Klopp welcomes Loris Karius' warm reception at Anfield: 'I loved it'

Liverpool completed their productive pre-season with a seventh win in nine friendlies, taking their goals tally to 26 in the process, as Jürgen Klopp's team defeated Torino 3-1 at Anfield. I didn't need the final proof in and around the World Cup or in last season.

The Reds will go into their fixture against the Serie A side at Anfield with Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez as their only two fit senior centre halves, with Ragnar Klavan, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip all struggling with minor knocks.

"For Raggy [Klavan] and Joel [Matip], probably they are not fit and can not play for the weekend, but we don't need 12 centre-halves, we only need two at least and one to change would be extremely cool".

In the second half at Anfield midfielders Fabinho - who missed an early penalty - and Marko Grujic both filled in as Van Dijk only played 45 minutes but Klopp is not anxious ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham. Yes, I think it is possible.

Italy worldwide Andrea Belotti pulled one back for the visitors with a powerful header, but after Klopp made a raft of substitutions, Daniel Sturridge nodded in a Xherdan Shaqiri cross to score for the third friendly in a row.

Xherdan Shaqiri brought down a raking ball and exchanged possession with Nathaniel Clyne before floating in a cross for Daniel Sturridge to nod in.

Liverpool will be hoping to take their pre-season form into their Premier League campaign when West Ham come to town this weekend.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

"We showed tonight a really nice face and that helps, not only Loris but the others as well that they see this is a very special place".

'I am not sure but it is Hendo. "I don't know how we will do it".

"Today he looked at home, he looked comfortable and when he was called upon he made the saves he had to make, so long may that continue and that will give him more confidence than he has already got and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the season ahead".
