The 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips made three showings in the International Champions Cup in pre-season and started at Anfield in the club's final warm-up game ahead of the season opener against Torino.

"We can not ignore that when trying to redefine Klopp as some kind of chequebook manager, or Liverpool's American owners as Roman Abramovich-style benefactors", Carragher said when asked about the Coutinho money.

'It's about making the right decisions in the right moments. I know that Salah was (thought) a good deal for Roma, but now people say it is a good deal for Liverpool. We have to improve everything. They brought in [Riyad] Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker.

"What it taught me is that English teams play until the last second". Who do you think will win?

Like Liverpool, the Hammers got their business done early and they too have had seen some positive signs in pre-season.

But the German insists they are still underdogs in the battle for the league crown, saying: "We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago".

Tiger charges into the hunt as Koepka grabs lead at 100th PGA
Woodland, even with the lowest 36-hole score in 60 years of stroke play at the PGA Championship , still had a long way to go. The 38-year-old was also hot with the putter, rolling in six birdies to keep Koepka within striking distance.

The Reds have been keeping a really high line in their warm-up matches and teams have been getting in behind on occasion so the Austrian could benefit.

The London side have only won once in their last 45 visits to Anfield, and Liverpool will be looking to make their stadium a fortress once again this campaign after finishing last season unbeaten at home. We are the ones who have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

"It is one of the best clubs in the world. I think they had a very successful season, a good season, last time, but we didn't win a trophy".

"The points we lost between us and City were obviously for different reasons and mostly because we did not win all the other games". We have to come in a championship mood. "I don't know exactly how - fancy dress for the players or whatever!"

"We ask if it is a risk - and if it is a risk, do we take it?" Trent, a bit longer in, which is good; [Henderson] in and full of power, but not too long in - three or four days - but it's Hendo so you always think about him. "Joel did parts of training yesterday, like Joe did, so we will see how they are today".
