Jurgen Klopp under pressure after summer spending spree

Liverpool vs Torino, friendly: live score updates

Liverpool spent heavily in the transfer market this summer.

Just as Liverpool were threatening to run riot as they did in Saturday's 5-0 rout of Napoli, they were pegged back by a thunderous header from Belotti, which left the world's most expensive goalkeeper Alisson helpless.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicted that Liverpool would finish in second position in the Premier League table this season, when writing a column for Sky Sports, although he did point out their Achilles heel.

And Shearer believes Klopp is under pressure to deliver silverware this season with Liverpool's last trophy being the 2012 League Cup.

"Klopp will know that too, but he would rather have spent that money - and have to handle the pressure that comes with it - than not".




However, Klopp insists he has no issue with Can and it makes sense that he'd be happy enough with his midfield options thanks to the signings of Fabinho and Keita. Fabinho and Keita should offer Klopp the drive he craves in midfield but they can not replicate Coutinho's guile.

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

Following the horror showing, the club had hoped Karius would return to the pre-season full of confidence, but after two errors during the Reds' pre-season tour, the Reds opted to smash the club transfer record for Brazillian shot-stopper Alisson Becker.

"It's like Rangers and Celtic".

It should therefore give Clyne the opportunity to start the club's Premier League opener against West Ham United on Sunday and steal a march on his worldwide teammate, who he will be hopeful of dislodging from his role with the England team. "Joel did yesterday parts of training like Joe did - we will see how they are today".
