Liverpool's title bid does not just depend on how they fare. "It is nothing serious but it was not possible tonight as he played on Saturday", said Klopp. Dejan [Lovren] is in, he had not a very long holiday.
Liverpool fans sent a warm message of support to their German goalkeeper, Loris Karius, at his first appearance at Anfield since the UEFA Champions League Final in May.
It was a moment which pleased Klopp as much as the performance. "I really liked his pre-season, it was really strong and proved a lot and that was cool". "It was a really big gesture".
The Liverpool captain only returned to training on Sunday, but Klopp did not rule him out of contention to feature against West Ham on the weekend. Is it possible being different in a really hard world?
Fabinho is now struggling with illness after undergoing a scan that came back all clear on Thursday, while Henderson and Alexander-Arnold reported for pre-season later than the majority of their teammates following England's participation at the World Cup.
"At the end I'm pretty sure we will have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions".
Meanwhile, Wolves are on the verge of signing Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.
Bridge reckons a deal for Pulisic before tomorrow's 5pm transfer deadline isn't completely off the table.
He would become Wolves' sixth signing since gaining promotion from the Championship in May.
