  • Adam Lallana has played for Liverpool since 2014

Liverpool's new signing Alisson Becker gets to make his first LFC appearance this evening against Napoli.

Alisson had been the number one goalkeeper in both standing and number for Roma last season but now at Liverpool Loris Karius holds the no. 1 jersey.

Liverpool released an official statement announcing Alisson's "provisional" number, and confirmed that the goalkeeper will be assigned an official number in due course.

The 25-year-old Brazil global, who joined from Roma in a £65 million deal earlier this month, was not present on the team's preseason tour of the United States, having been granted an extended break after featuring at the World Cup.

Despite this, Goal understands Liverpool would be open to a permanent deal for the England U20 World Cup victor, with West Brom leading a host of interested clubs.

The game can also be accessed on Liverpool's website through the LFCTV portal while it is also available on Sky channel 425 and Virgin Media channel 544.

Pompeo said the United States has signed a $350 million investment compact with Mongolia to develop new water sources. Pompeo called for the region to remain "free and open", an implicit challenge to China's approach to its neighbors.

Liverpool will consider selling Sheyi Ojo before the transfer window closes, despite Jurgen Klopp's assertion the club only wanted to send him on loan.

"I think goalkeepers are important to any team".

"He obviously has a real presence, he's smart, he's very nice and it's good to have him around", Klopp continued.

Klopp is understood to be impressed by the alertness and sharpness Alisson displayed in his first training session and the keeper has also left an impression on his team-mates after pulling off a terrific save to deny Marko Grujic a goal.

"We have two games to do that before we start, so it's really good".

Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly against Italians Torino on August 7, five days before hosting West Ham United in their Premier League opener.
