  • Clyne made just five appearances last season

Although new goalkeeper Alisson started the game in goal, he was replaced by Loris Karius in the closing stages.

The Reds have invested £67 million ($87m) worth of faith in the Brazil worldwide after losing trust in last season's goalkeeping options.

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad.

Liverpool fans have given troubled goalkeeper Loris Karius a rousing reception on his return to Anfield following his calamitous display in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final. "He's working constantly", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

"You look at getting to a Champions League final and having Virgil van Dijk for a full season". 5-0 sounds really clear and it is clear, but we all saw in the first half they had a lot of moments where they were in our box.

"The goalkeeping situation has given everybody a massive lift".

Tuesday Trivia: wanna watch the Perseid meteor shower?
The Perseid meteor shower gets its name from the constellation Perseus, as the flashes appear to originate from the constellation. The best place to view them is getting out of the city lights and get a spot where you can see as much sky as possible.

Klopp has made a host of changes to Liverpool's backroom since his arrival in 2015, both alongside him in the dugout and behind the scenes, including medical staff and nutritionists.

How lovely. Hopefully, that will have done Karius the power of good.

"But if you asked them: "What does a goalkeeper do?' They couldn't say more than 'catch balls". However, don't be surprised if you see a fair few familiar faces leave Anfield during today's antics.

"He looks cool and calm on the ball and that's what Klopp wants from his goalkeeper, but they were areas that had to be rectified and it looks like majority have been".

Many supporters have attributed this to the role of Achterberg, who joined Liverpool in 2009 and was promoted to first-team goalkeeper coach two years later.

The bar has been raised by Manchester City and the Premier League title hopefuls know they will have little room for error if they are to challenge Pep Guardiola's side this season.
