Trent's case, it looks like he is still growing.

But they are a club on the up.

"It's pretty likely [he will play against Napoli]", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

It's a really important game for us but it's still a pre-season game, so we want to combine it.

Klopp's part in transfer strategy, his significant say in recent signings should be applauded, too.

The goalkeeper will have "A. Becker 13" on his shirt this evening.

The Brazilian rejoined the Reds squad in France this week, after his involvement in this summer's World Cup.

But, a note of caution. I'm very pleased [to be working with him] but first of all it's very important he can start now because the season starts in one-and-a-half weeks.

"We play a role and there is a certain value on that and Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper", Begovic said.

Ben Stokes could not continue to convert his start into a big inning as he handed over a simple catch to Ashwin on his bowling. While all the focus was on the James Anderson-Virat Kohli's showdown, this moment could be the second-best moment of the day.

Shaqiri's signing has given them an added option for their attack.

And despite having a formidable front three of Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, reports are suggesting that Shaqiri could be used by Klopp in a deeper midfield role in their curtain-raiser.

That night in Kiev was a night to forget for the LIverpool shot-stopper and since, he has shown signs of under-confidence in pre-season.

"Pre-season is hard so I think you do need to get four or maybe five, six, seven days away preparing".

Keita is no Coutinho, but he will create opportunities and contribute goals himself.

Apart from the aforementioned quintet, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the other big name to not be in contention for Saturday's game as the England midfielder is a long-term casualty with a serious knee injury.

In a whirlwind year for the teenager, he went from appearing only the odd cup fixtures to a Champions League final starting position and a place in England's World Cup squad.

Adam Lallana is upbeat about Liverpool's prospects in the upcoming season.
