Liverpool v West Ham United

Liverpool have looked impressive during their preparations for the new season, which they will begin by welcoming West Ham to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

What happened in the Champions League final with Loris Karius, yes it was disappointing for the Liverpool supporters on the night losing that game, but we've all been there as players where you have a poor game.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has praised goalkeeping coach John Achterberg after suggestions were made that the Dutchman is failing in his role at the club.

If he is able to play, then he is likely to be part of a midfield including Gini Wijnaldum and Naby Keita, with Klopp suggesting that summer signing Fabinho may need some more time to gain fitness and adapt to the team's style of play.

"When Antonio Conte came in they'd finished 10th and won the league".

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next".

City have been quiet in the transfer market, adding just Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, but their attacking potency and ability to dominate possession should be even stronger with the addition of the talented Algerian.

Liverpool would score on two occasions moments later.

The Lyon midfielder would be the cherry on top of the cake of Liverpool's transfer window and has the potential to be one of the savviest bits of business the club has done all summer.

Liverpool finished 25 points adrift of champions Manchester City last season, but they have enjoyed a positive pre-season and will open the new campaign in buoyant mood at home to West Ham on Sunday.

"Liverpool will give the title a go, they're the second best now, I think they've bought very well, very well", Merson told Sky Sports.
