Jurgen Klopp reveals one major regret from Liverpool's transfer window

There was also another promising display from 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips, who played nearly the full 90 minutes at centre-back, and a nice moment midway through the second half when Loris Karius, whose errors contributed to Liverpool's defeat in last season's Champions League final, replaced Alisson to huge cheers from the home crowd.

In Liverpool's final pre-season hit out against Italian club Torino, the club's first pre-season appearance at Anfield, Karius made his own personal return to Anfield, and was given the kind of reception the Liverpool crowd has become famous for over the years.

While he has had very little to do so far since signing from AS Roma last month, Alisson has impressed in his first two pre-season fixtures with his official Liverpool debut just days away.

The goalkeeper was happy with Liverpool fans' reception, posting on his Instagram account: "Thank you Anfield for this reception!".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is content with his centre-back options ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham United.

Liverpool boss Klopp has not completely ruled out transfer activity tomorrow either.

Mauricio Pochettino says his side are BOLD for not signing anyone
The Argentine said: 'If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective, you can not succeed. Of course, we are open to improving but if you can't improve the most important is to keep your best team and players.

Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge all got on the scoresheet for the Reds while midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri provided a sublime assist for the latter's third and final goal.

"As a human being I was hoping for it, that it would be like this", Klopp told reporters after the game.

"I think (Joe Gomez) is okay".

"I loved it, to be honest".

"It was nice that Ingsy could play tonight, he has been fit for two or three weeks, it's no problem but we didn't want to go with any risk".

This lead to Karius being the subject of a wave of abuse on social media, some of it going way past the typical football jokes you would see after the games, with death threats amongst several vicious messages targeted at the German goalkeeper.
