Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius given standing ovation upon Anfield return

10 August 2018

Liverpool FC were thought to be on the lookout for some reinforcements between the posts after Loris Karius' Champions League final nightmare against Real Madrid back in May.

Liverpool have had a successful summer in the transfer window making plenty of quality additions to their squad.

"Obviously in the offensive department we are able to do some nice things but that's only one part of the game". If he isn't fit, Jürgen Klopp could hand Jordan Henderson a start despite only returning to training on Sunday last week.

The money Liverpool have spent both this summer and in acquiring Virgil van Dijk last January has been sizeable, but the snipes from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggesting Klopp has joined the big spenders league have been laughable. But for tonight, the two available played. I think the Neymar transfer was pivotal to everything.

The Champions League finalists will kick off as second favourites behind Manchester City, and they're seen as the Citizens' main rivals for a reason, as they dished out one of only two City defeats of the Premier League season past year.
