The 23-year-old joined up with Liverpool this summer after officially signing for the Premier League giants last August.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino made their first appearances in a Liverpool shirt since playing at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The pair are expected to feature in Liverpool's penultimate pre-season friendly against Napoli on Saturday, and Klopp feels both will be back up to full fitness in time to face the Hammers at Anfield next week.

"Then it'll be almost a week, or six days in training, since he (started) and yes, he will play", Klopp continued. "A game in midweek but in the summer holidays should be an opportunity, against a really good opponent - it's a really important game for us, it's not "some game" - to show up with our supporters".

Alisson is set to make his debut following his £67m move from Roma. "It's only positive, even the performance in training - which is not too important in the beginning - are already exceptional, so all good".

And Alisson insists he will be 100 per cent ready by the time the Reds kick off their new campaign.

"As good as Alisson was in his first season in Rome, Courtois we have seen over a longer period".

Of Keita, with who Liverpool had a deal set up 12 months ago, Klopp acknowledged: "We have got him because of the player he is, and now we have to let him adapt to our system".

"This initial training session has been useful for me to see what our playing style should be in the Premier League. We play a role and there is a certain value on that and Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper", Begovic said.

"Ultimately Liverpool will be again judged on pushing City domestically and if they can go deep, I don't expect them to go as deep, in the Champions League this year".

"Now, the thing for me is, yes Jurgen Klopp has spent a lot of money and I think he's had quite a honeymoon period without bringing home silverware".
