Along with the aforementioned signings, Liverpool have Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum competing for the three midfield spots in Klopp's favoured 4-3-3 system.

The midfielder came on as a second-half substitute in their final pre-season game against Torino on Tuesday which they won 3-1.

The Reds start their season against West Ham on Sunday as they look to challenge champions Manchester City for the Premier League title.

It was the Egyptian's pressing on the edge of the box which saw him dispossess Tomas Rincon in the build-up to Liverpool's 16th-minute penalty. They should line up with the same back four as they fielded in Kiev, with youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold set to get the nod over compatriot Nathaniel Clyne, bolstered by his World Cup experience.

Liverpool FC signed Brazil worldwide Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco at the start of the transfer window. Wijnaldum and Salah combined to set up Firmino for a shot that deflected into the top corner off Lorenzo De Silvestri.

"It helps everybody", he told Liverpool's website.

It didn't take too long for Liverpool to make amends however.

Klopp has an nearly irreplaceable front three at his disposal at Liverpool, but should one of them suffer an injury or receive a suspension, the German has little in reserve apart from Ings and Danirl Sturridge.

The rumour states that Real Madrid have only identified Pjanic as a replacement for Modric if he departs from the Bernabeu. All they have to do is give Modric a significant pay-rise and ensure he stays at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

The Reds did not finish with a single player who started the game and eight of Torino's own changes took the sting out of the game.

"What I like about Liverpool is that they've addressed problems".

With one eye fixed firmly on their Premier League opener in five days time, it was Daniel Sturridge who would enter the fray and leave his mark on yet another pre-season friendly.
