Liverpool boss Klopp admits everything open for deadline day: Ings...?

Liverpool boss Klopp admits everything open for deadline day: Ings...?

Liverpool concluded an impressive pre-season by cruising to a 3-1 win over Torino on Tuesday.

For Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan are both injury doubts for their season opener against West Ham United on August 12.

"Dejan (Lovren) is in but he's not had a long holiday (after the World Cup final)".

The Reds have strengthened their side considerably since last season, bringing in Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson and Fabinho.

Brazil's number one, who impressed with his performances at the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, will take over the gloves from Loris Karius, who made two mistakes in the Reds' Champions League final defeat.

On Ings' future specifically, he added: "It's all open, what can I say?"

After victory over Torino, the German said: "We will see".

In the biggest moment of his young career, two incredible errors from Karius proved to be the difference between the Reds and Real Madrid, with the goalkeeper tearfully apologising to traveling Liverpool fans after the final whistle.

Henderson helped England to reach the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, which meant he only returned to training on Sunday.

"Hopefully he will go on to be a great goalkeeper and be remembered for that but Liverpool had to make a change because I think there would be no belief in Liverpool actually, never mind winning a league but challenging for the league with the two goalkeepers they had".

"I am not sure but it is Hendo".

Klopp noted that the skipper "looked like he trained for the whole three weeks" when he came back to Melwood at the weekend, which prompted the decision to give him minutes.

"He was in a really good shape, so we thought a few minutes tonight should be possible". And I feel as though we have got a fantastic squad. It should also be remembered that Liverpool defeated Manchester City three times last season, as well as recently beating the sky blues in pre-season.
