"But they've got to, not just get out of the group stage, but get one or two rounds further in".

This clash in Dublin will provide supporters with their first glimpse of Alisson in action in a Liverpool shirt, as Klopp continues to prepare for the season ahead.

There is no doubt Karius was disappointed by the arrival of the Brazilian, but the wonderful gesture is sure to soften the blow for the now second-choice goalkeeper.

It didn't take long for Alisson Becker to make an impact on his first start for Liverpool.

They have had to be patient, but it looks like Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita may have been worth the wait.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Alisson will make his Liverpool debut in their penultimate pre-season friendly against Napoli on Saturday.

A meeting with Torino at Anfield on Tuesday is Liverpool's last friendly assignment before their Premier League campaign begins at home to West Ham United next Sunday. "The signs are really good for us to go the next step". The Swiss with the well-developed upper-body looks an appropriate back-up for either of the wider positions - Salah, or Sadio Mane - in Klopp's trusted front three.

Andrew Robertson, as always, was a unsafe attacking outlet on the left, Joe Gomez is an interesting option to start next to Virgil van Dijk in central defence and Milner was effective in midfield, pressing and using the ball intelligently.

Adam Lallana is upbeat about Liverpool's prospects in the upcoming season. Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno, two players many expected to be on their way out of Anfield this summer, took their goals very well when they came on after the break. Liverpool's last was the League Cup triumph, way back in February 2012.

Xherdan Shaqiri, who came on for Firmino at half-time, was heavily involved as he latched onto Mane's pass and stood a cross up towards Salah, who found a pocket of space in the box and sent an unstoppable curler beyond Orestis Karnezis.
