Alisson to debut for Liverpool against Napoli

Alisson to debut for Liverpool against Napoli

And Danny boy had more work to do - he played a lovely ball across and Alberto Moreno thundered in a shot to make it 5-0. Granted, the Italian team never got out of first gear and the game wasn't much of a contest out after half-time.

Liverpool's world-record signing Alisson will reportedly wear the number 13 jersey for the Reds.

And Alisson's teammates already realise just how important he can be in this department.

Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly against Torino on August 7, five days before hosting West Ham in their Premier League opener. The fee for Alisson was necessary and it's up to him now to justify it. From one point of view, we needed another game because it was clear a lot of players would come back later.

Liverpool, though, did not have to wait long for their second goal of the evening as Milner turned provider with a superb inswinging cross from the left that Wijnaldum nodded home. Liverpool's last was the League Cup triumph, way back in February 2012.

Their pressing, particularly in the first half, was excellent and ensured they were a threat in every passage of play.

Ings and Liverpool agreed on a parting of the ways earlier this summer and that could come to a head sooner rather than later with the England striker not set to travel with the team for the friendly against Napoli in Dublin.

Roberto Firmino joined up with Liverpool's training camp in Evian-les-Bains, France. Adam Lallana and Joel Matip weren't involved due to what has been termed 'minor knocks'. Xherdan Shaqiri replaced Firmino at half-time and played nearly as a false-nine, dropping deep and looking to pick out the runs of Salah and Firmino. Fabinho could become the controlling presence in midfield Liverpool haven't had for some time.

Karius, who followed up his nightmare display in the Champions League final against Real Madrid with a series of errors in pre-season this summer, has now admitted that his future is up in the air following Alisson's arrival.

The Brazilian took part in his first training session for the club this week since sealing his big-money move from Roma and has immediately caught the eye of his new boss.
