Jurgen Klopp considering surprise start for Xherdan Shaqiri in season opener

Jurgen Klopp considering surprise start for Xherdan Shaqiri in season opener

Klopp is understood to be impressed by the alertness and sharpness Alisson displayed in his first training session and the keeper has also left an impression on his team-mates after pulling off a terrific save to deny Marko Grujic a goal.

"It's pretty likely [he will play against Napoli]", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

Ings joined Liverpool from Burnley for just £6.5 million, meaning the Reds are in line to make a big profit on the forward who has been plagued by injuries during his time at the club.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp says he wants to give his new players a chance to feel the euphoria of their new home before the season kicks off.

Out of all the top six teams, Liverpool have arguably enjoyed the best summer.

Alisson started training with Liverpool earlier this week following a break after Brazil's World Cup campaign.

Trump tweeted a photo of himself with Kelly on Monday to celebrate his deputy's first year. Trump is known as a mercurial boss whose feelings on key staffers can shift rapidly.

Grujic spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff in the Championship and Warnock was confident about re-signing the 22-year-old again on a temporary deal.

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.

"For him it was very good moment in his career, having already had a real experience at Bayern [Munich], at Stoke at Inter".

"We will see who can start against Napoli".

"If possible we will see [whether he plays a part against Napoli]".

The report also claimed that following conversations with the club, Alisson opted not to take the No.1 jersey "out of respect for Karius". I think it's probably what the players and the team need actually, it's away from the public eye and the limelight for a little bit [and] lets them get on with their work.
