'Joel (Matip), we'll have to see.

Liverpool next play Torino on Tuesday night, but it is unlikely that Alisson will feature again as Loris Karius is primed to get the nod in the Reds' final pre-season fixture of the summer.

And in the build-up to this final friendly, the German has made clear how crucial skipper Henderson is to his side's ambitions this season.

"He's quite a good footballer - probably as good as the goalie he is", Klopp told reporters after the match.

"There are no doubts about Hendo".

The latest reports from the World Cup winner's homeland indicate he might head to one of Liverpool's rivals instead though. "Leipzig were destined to lose him anyway but Dortmund aren't in that position with Pulisic".

"We need to be ready each week, not only for a few games".

Trump has been more frustrated since headlines about his former attorney Michael Cohen emerged last week. And with the midterms only three months away, critics have called on Trump to take a stronger stand.

"Hendo for sure was involved in the first goal with a press ball that he didn't win".

Klopp believes the injury to the 32-year-old was the one negative of a day where his team delivered an extremely encouraging display. We can't change six players after 60 minutes.

"Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday".
