Liverpool boss Klopp confirms no centre-back signing before deadline

Jurgen Klopp celebrates with Curtis Jones

Roberto Firmino starred as Liverpool rounded off an impressive pre-season with a comfortable 3-1 win over Italians Torino at Anfield on Tuesday.

Firmino turned provider, sliding a pass through for Georginio Wijnaldum to slam home but Andrea Belotti headed the visitors back into the contest after the half hour.

Jurgen Klopp discusses Liverpool's pre-season as they prepare for their first Premier League game against West Ham on Sunday. "Their Achilles heel for me will be against the lesser teams and if they can break them down but I'm all over Liverpool, I think they're the team who will come second".

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

The Brazilian scored all 15 of his Ligue 1 penalties for former club AS Monaco - only to shoot wide from the spot for his new club against the Serie A side.

Following the horror showing, the club had hoped Karius would return to the pre-season full of confidence, but after two errors during the Reds' pre-season tour, the Reds opted to smash the club transfer record for Brazillian shot-stopper Alisson Becker.

Three minutes later the hosts doubled their lead when Wijnaldum capped off a wonderful move by slipping Salah's well-timed through-ball underneath goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

Klopp added that the emergence of youngster Nat Phillips helps his injuries concerns.

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson is backing new signing Alisson to showcase his skills not only as a goalkeeper but as a playmaker at Anfield.

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.

His bad record in cup finals - seven games, one victory - is well known but he does have experience of winning league titles, doing so twice with Borussia Dortmund.
